A homemade version of a take-out was on a menu tonight. Only it was a healthier version of the tasty Thai classic made in less time than it takes to have it ordered and delivered. It is light and fresh, dare I say easy with a capital E. You can seriously have this ready in 30 minutes flat, perhaps a little longer with all the chopping and prep, but worth the time for a weeknight meal.
It was a spicy dinner – actually very HOT!!! My mouth is still on fire. That little bit of sriracha and my mouth is burning. I am not a big fan of hot food, but I survived and dare I admit it, maybe even enjoyed it. If it wasn’t for the hotness, there would be something missing for sure. The shrimp were amazing – plump, juicy and spicy!
I am off to relax now – Kiki is asleep, breakfast/lunch/coffee are all ready for tomorrow – the only thing I need to decide is to what will relaxing entail – watch “ABC Family tv shows (don’t laugh, the chef is already laughing at me…), go to bed and read or organize my home office?!? Hmmm….decisions…
