I love Pinterest for wedding planning ideas, new workouts and recipes, but sometimes I get nervous attempting to recreate recipes or crafts. Whenever I try new recipes, I like to browse any comments or reviews for tips and tricks. I saw one pin floating around many boards for easy Pad Thai and was intrigued to try it, so I thought I’d share my experience with you.
The recipe required minimal ingredients and didn’t seem too complicated, so I decided to give it a shot one weekday evening. The source of the pin was very thorough and had step-by-step instructions with photos.
Although not exactly like the photo, I thought it was a successful attempt. I couldn’t find flat rice noodles so had to settle for lo mein noodles. I added a half tablespoon more of brown sugar because I thought it needed to be slightly sweeter. The chopped peanuts and cilantro are a must to bring everything together. I also did not add the optional Sriracha, but I think it is needed to give the dish more depth of flavor. Although it didn’t taste quite like the Pad Thai in restaurants, I thought it was a delicious mid-week meal. The cilantro and green onions gave the dish a fresh flavor, and the sauce wasn’t too heavy.
I’d call it a Pinterest success and recommend that you give it a try.
Last night, Kevin and I went to our first Halloween party of the season. Kevin doesn’t get very excited by the idea of dressing up, but he was a really good sport. We decided to be 80s fitness enthusiasts, and boy, were our outfits bright!
We had a lot of fun laughing at how goofy we looked, and I was so excited that Kevin dressed up. It’s hard to believe we’re already coming up on Halloween.
What are you dressing up as this year?
