Homemade Shrimp Pad Thai is easier than you think, bring the essence of Thailand into your kitchen today!
Finally, the elections has come and gone.
I hope you exercised your rights to vote. I did and all I could say is that whatever the final results maybe we must support our newly elected leaders and continue to be vigilant on how they’re leading us. We must continue to be disciplined and law-abiding as the change and healing of our country starts in each of us.
And that’s the first and last time I’m gonna post something politically related.
I am now moving on to noodles.. delicious and easy Shrimp Pad Thai.
I think a lot of people are intimidated when cooking Pad Thai — and that actually includes me. This is the first time I made Shrimp Pad Thai. Because it’s my first time, I made use of a ready-made Pad Thai paste. I bought two brands, compared the taste and ended up loving Kanokwan Pad Thai Paste.
The result? Delicious and seemingly authentic Shrimp Pad Thai in my kitchen. peanutbutter♥ and Ykaie really enjoyed it. There were even leftovers which we ended up enjoying for breakfast the next day.
I do hope I get to cook more meals like this. These past few days have just been quite busy. Next week, it’ll be busier for sure. We’re having a 6-day trip to Ilocos, it’s gonna be Ykaie’s enrollment, then we’ll start getting ready for Twinkle’s first birthday and christening.
Have a great start of the week everyone! I’m feeling a monday vibe today…
