How are you? I hope you had a fantastic weekend! We had Kaylin’s BIG birthday party this Saturday, and it was also our 5th wedding anniversary. More on that to come.
Its secret recipe club time again!! As a part of the club, each month you’re assigned another Secret Recipe Club blogger to make a recipe from. If you want to join, click here to sign up.
This month, I was assigned The Life & Loves of Grumpy’s Honeybunch . Shelby (Grumpy’s Honeybunch- Grumpy is her husband ) started her blog as a record for her children and potential grandchildren. I think that is SO sweet!! She has two grown boys and lots of yummy recipes! I went back and forth on what to make and finally ended up picking her Shrimp Pad Thai . Josh ADORES pad thai. If given the chance, I think he’d eat Basil’s pad Thai every night for dinner (and maybe sometimes for lunch too).
I followed her recipe with just a few changes:
1. I used rice sticks:
2. I was lazy and did not make my own Teriyaki sauce (that Harris Teeter!):
3. I eliminated the red pepper, as Josh isn’t a fan (he usually scoops those off his Basil pad Thai and throws them on my plate ).
The result was delicious! It tasted much more like peanut noodles vs. traditional pad Thai, but I kind of loved that!
