Pad Thai – Down Pat

While the wife and kid were tooling around Texas exhausting themselves and filling up on all sorts of good American grub, I sat down with my shelf of cookbooks and pulled a page full of recipe ideas.  It gets difficult to go to a cookbook cold and dredge up ideas so I use the page as a sort of cheat sheet.  I have the recipe name and the cookbook and page.  It worked wonders on Sunday night.  I made a killer batch of Chicken Pad Thai from Mark Bittman’s “Minimalist” cookbook.  It took about ten minutes to cook and was some awesome comfort food on an unreasonably cold late March night.  I had to have a second helping because I know my wife will be eating the leftovers for lunch this week.  Yeah, it was that good.  Had I not gorged on it last night I would have never seen it again.

A great, simple recipe.  Ripe for variation and chimp simple.  Bittman continues to rock.
