Dinner: Impromptu Pad Thai

I hadn't planned dinner yesterday (I was kinda in a funk and didn't even get out of bed until 3pm), so when 5:30 rolled around I realized we didn't have anything to eat! I didn't want to go out because I felt gross, so I rummaged through the pantry and noticed we had a few cans of carrots and some organic corn, in the freezer I had some organic edamame and organic broccoli. Easy to cook, toss with red pepper flakes, soy sauce and Sesame Ginger dressing.. Mike wanted noodles instead of the usual rice I make with Asian vegetables so we ran to Albertsons (closest store) and grabbed some packaged vermicelli rice noodles and some tofu..

Rice noodles, carrots, corn, edamame, broccoli, broiled tofu topped with cilantro and lime (Latin garnish but it works so well with the veggies!) & spring rolls..

Verdict: Half awful. The veggies were AMAZING, the tofu was crispy with a fluffy center as I like.. But those rice noodles. Ugh. Never again will I buy packaged rice noodles.

We dug thru the noodles, ate all the veggies and tofu and made organic PB&J an hour later.

NTS: Just use spaghetti next time.
