Yes, yes, I’ll admit it: even I occasionally reach for some packaged convenience foods to feed my family. One of my longtime favorites is Thai Kitchen Pad Thai Noodles.
This is a meal kit with an amount of rice noodles that you soak in hot water for 3 minutes and then a scrumptious sauce in a packet. The sauce doesn’t contain any suspicious ingredients or anything else offensive to my natural food sensibilities — phew! Which is why I keep it in my cupboard and don’t feel guilty about serving it.
You stir fry your own egg, veggies, and/or meat or tofu in a wok or skillet, then add the softened noodles and the packet of sauce and Voila! Dinner is ready! Couldn’t be easier or more delicious!
Oh, and yes, I did find my camera — it had been stashed in the center console in my car. Who knew?
