Last-Minute Pad Thai

The less time I spend on the computer, the less time I *want* to spend on the computer.

Can you dig it?

Raising little kiddos is fun – and exhausting. At the end of a long day of cooking, baking, chasing, praising, chastising, feeding, changing, etc. I just don’t want to look at a screen. So, dear reader, my apologies. I’ll try not to be such a slacker here on out.

Can I make it up to you by sharing a healthy, delicious, FAST recipe for the entire family?

Whew! Glad to hear it.
