Pad ThaiAnother one of my Thai takeout favorites is Pad Thai.  Since the spicy fried rice turned out so well, I decided to try my hand at making Pad Thai.  From my searching, I found that there are quite a few variations on this recipe, some of them are quite complicated and some are pretty basic.  Most of the recipes called for the same basic ingredients, most of which we had, so I just bought the rice noodles that were needed.  Fortunately there was a recipe on the box.  Sometimes the box recipes are good and sometimes bad, but it was pretty simple, so I went for it.  I must say that it turned out pretty well.  I will make  a couple changes the next time – like not using the bottled lemon juice, too lemony – but it’s a good start.
