Pad Thai is one of the BEST dishes I’ve ever had! I love all the different flavors you get in a bite. In this pasta, you experience lime, an amazing sauce, egg, cilantro, peanuts, and amazing noodles! This is seriously one of the best ethnic meals I have ever tasted, it makes me want to travel to Thailand! My family has been making this for quite sometime and everyone loves it! When we have it, we all seriously overdose on it…it gets bad. As the weekend approaches, make sure and add all these ingredients to your shopping list and whip this up! Happy Friday! Oh and only 23 days till I graduate 🙂
