Pad Thai Noodles

Sorry the picture sucks… I couldn’t wait to eat it!

There is an amazing restaurant in my hometown called Pad Thai. Believe it or not, their pad thai noodle dish is absolutely TO DIE FOR.  I am not really sure why I haven’t just asked them for their recipe yet, next time I go I certainly will. For now, my never ending quest is to duplicate the delicious flavors in their signature dish. I am pretty sure if I am ever on death row, I would request Pad Thai pad thai noodles.

My New Favorite Snack

Dried Seaweed Sheets

Dried Seaweed Sheets

I have been seriously craving Asian food lately, so I have been hanging out in the Asian ethnic aisle in my grocery store. I had a Japanese childhood friend, and I remembered eating dried seaweed sheets at her house, so I decided to give them a try again. This pack was about $5, and it was totally worth it! These crunchy and salty sheets are delicious. And, as it turns out, seaweed is super healthy for you too. According to the Huffington Post, we should all be eating more of it. Definitely give these a try!
