Done Like Dinner

Usually it's Pronto with the food blogging, but tonight I'm taking a turn. Here's the story: I tried a new recipe from Dan's new cookbook, Thug Kitchen.  The recipe was vegetarian pad thai with dry-fried tofu.  Unfortunately, I had to make a few adjustments because I'm really bad at grocery shopping.  Even though I had shallots and limes on my meticulously hand-written list, I did not actually purchase those items in the produce section of the store.  

This happens far more frequently than it should.

In any case, I smartly substituted clementine juice for the lime juice and thinly-sliced red onion for the shallots.  From there, everything was perfect.  We all loved the healthy pad thai, stir-fried in grape seed oil, and we all had seconds. Except for Mac.  Mac had about a half a bite of the dish.  Later, he asked if we could "take the stuff off" the noodles and cried. It's hard to be Mac.

But it's easy to eat pad thai. Yum. I'm making this again.
