Sunday Supper: Homemade Shrimp Pad Thai

My husband’s family is from Laos, a country that shares borders with Thailand and Vietnam. We love Asian food and for me, noodles in particular. A casual night in with friends (and four toddlers) was the perfect excuse to try my hand at pad Thai. Not as hard as you’d think. I’m often intimidated from making dishes like these because of the number of ingredients. Besides the garnishes, this didn’t require a whole lot.

I used this recipe and we were pleased with the results. No leftovers is the sure sign of something going well. For a side dish, we had Thai cucumber salad which had a nice crunch and yummy dressing.

What dish have you been trying to make? The hardest part is getting ingredients together.
