Pad Thai (recipe in the comments from 11/11)
Cucumber salad

Hot tea
This is an unsurprising repeat. M and I love pad Thai and this recipe is pretty easy and tastes great. In fact I have come to like our version of pad Thai better than most versions I try at restaurants. I think the extra dose of vegetables and lime really kick this recipe into high gear. It's a wonderful dish to make on a busy night because it is pretty easy and it can sit. It's good hot,warm, or even cold. We have used this many times as picnic fare. Be sure to watch the volume on your rice noodles. We used a new brand and didn't look at the package very clearly and it was more noodles than the recipe calls for. This made the flavors less intense and we had to add sauce ingredients at the end. It still turned out yummy.

Prep Notes
Difficulty: Easy with two chefs (see post from 11/11)
Chopping: Peanuts, garlic, carrots, cucumbers
Time: 40 minutes
Make ahead: It saves well, but I haven't had the best luck reheating it. Serve leftovers room temperature or cold.

M: "Mmmmmm" (said while scooping the remains out of the pot with his fingers!)
