With a refrigerator full of fresh vegetables, I tried to make homemade pad thai.
Lime, cilantro, scallions, bean sprouts, jalapeno, egg, ground pork, carrots, mushrooms, and zucchini with rice noodles. Still have some ways to go in perfecting the sauce recipe, and definitely in cutting down the prep time from over an hour from refrigerator to table, but the boy loved it.
Apple-Asian Pear Crumble
I promised to make him an apple dessert, but lacked the energy to make my own pie crust. No worries, with some flour, butter and sugar, I made him a tasty crumble that went well with a small container of Ben and Jerry's vanilla ice cream.
