I am still not ready to say "uncle". I have decided to take it as a personal challenge. My new mission is to perfect Pad Thai. I might even have to go take a class, something that I am not adverse to do. The opportunity has been presented 3 or so times. I going to have to look into this and try to fit it into my very, very busy schedule....hehehe as if.... But until I get a class.....I am not prepared to stop, even it means................... Very dramatic don't you think?
My human guinea pigs thought it was good and tasty, I beg to differ. I thought that it was a bit too sour and not the right color. Andrew, my staunchest supporter, thank you so very much, said it was delicious, told me that I need to stop comparing it with 514 (the Thai restaurant). I just can't help it because that is my favorite one. I think I will go there today on my way home to get an order to go. I will have a side by side taste comparison. I just love those.
The Pad Thai was made with shrimp, chicken and tofu. I should have used fried tofu instead of firm. The tiger shrimp were fantastic and cooked to perfection as was the chicken. I know where I have to make adjustments with the proteins, I really have to work on the sauce. I have seen Pad Thai sauce in the market, but I was loathe to use it, maybe I should.
