Must Try Monday {Easy Pad Thai}

 As you know, I’m a huge Thai food fanatic! I was in the Asian section at the grocery store and I saw this Pad Thai noodle kit for only like $3 and I thought it might be good.  I laughed when I turned the box over and saw that the only thing in the box was rice noodles and Pad Thai sauce.   You have to provide all the rest of the ingredients.  Whatever.  I bought it and tried it out.  It was really good.  I would pay $3 for really yummy Pad Thai sauce.

I need to find  a good go-to recipe so I can make up a big batch. the best thing about a meal like this is that it is sooo fast. You boil water and fry up some veggies and you’re done.   That is the nice thing about semi-homemade meals:) although, if i had all the ingredients to make the sauce, I’m sure it would have been just as quick!

Thai Kitchen Pad Thai Noodle Kit
1 egg
1/2 lb shrimp deveined and peeled
1 can bean sprouts
dash of lime
1) Cook rice noodles according to directions on box. {bring 4 cups water to boil. Add noodles and remove from heat. Let stand about 6 mins. Drain and rinse with cold water.}
2) Heat about 1 Tbs oil in a medium skillet. Add egg and cook until scrambled. Set aside.
3) Heat about 2 Tbs oil and add shrimp. Cook until a very light golden brown on the sides.
4) Add rice noodles to the shrimp and combine with the Pad Thai sauce. Stir fry until warmed and noodles have absorbed the sauce.
5) Add bean sprouts, egg, and a dash of lime.
EAT WITH CHOPSTICKS ONLY. haha ok, just kidding.
Thai kitchen has some other noodle dishes I found but haven’t yet tried.
