First up: Homemade pad thai. That actually tastes like legit pad thai, rather than a pale imitator! (Even though the dish is pretty pale. Whatever, don't get picky with me!) It has some pretty authentic ingredients, like fish sauce and tamarind (I now know exactly what it feels like to be looking for something in the grocery store when I have no idea what it looks like. At least I was in the right section!). This is probably why it tastes surprisingly close to what you'd get from an actual Thai restaurant. Verdict: YUM. And bonus that the hubbub liked the tofu! He was pretty skeptical. We will definitely be making this again.
|Her pad thai, not mine.|
|Again, not my split pea soup. Crackers are a good idea, though.|
