Pad Kee Mao at home

"I should try something new, I always order the same thai food."  That's how Karl introduced me to one of my favorite thai dishes back when we first started dating.  New relationships, new food...  Variety is the spice of life.  Literally.  Pad Kee Mao, otherwise known as Drunken Noodles or Spicy Noodles is one of my go-to thai dishes.

Are you storing fat or burning it?

Are you storing fat or burning it?

It's natural to store fat for winter.  Living up here in Montana has made that even more clear to me, with all of the animals that hibernate in this part of the country.  If you've been watching the news, you know that some of the bears came out of hibernation early.  

Are you ready to come out of hibernation mode?

Chicken Poaching

I made a few soups this year that required a poached chicken (only because I wanted the chicken to have that shredded texture).One was Chicken Tortilla Soup and the other Chicken Rice Soup.Poaching is also good for making Enchiladas, Chicken Tacos or even just chicken sandwiches.It keeps the chicken full of moisture & flavor as well as making it easier to chew.
