Thai Recipes (for a feast!)

While traveling in Thailand, Jordan and I took a Thai cooking class so I got to perfect some of my Thai cooking!  I know lots of these instructions are lacking and confusing, but they make sense to me :-)  I like to cook all three of these at the same time and have a feast!

Pad Thai:
Serves 3
5 T olive oil
4 T chopped garlic
3 chicken breasts (cut into cubes)
60g extra firm tofu cut into small cubes (will fill about 3/4 cup)
2 handfuls of bean sprouts
1 carrot (sliced into thin pieces)
Handful of chopped green onions (about 4cm long)
Half package of Pad Thai noodles (about 8oz), I break them up so it is easier to mix later
2 eggs
4 T oyster sauce
3 T fish sauce
2 T sugar
3 T rice wine vinegar
3 t chili powder
1/4 c peanuts (chopped in the food processor)

-Soak noodles in water
-Mix oyster sauce, fish sauce, sugar vinegar and chili powder in bowl and set aside for later
-Put oil in wok and heat on medium heat
-Add tofu and fry till golden brown
-Add the raw chicken to the mix and cook…

Travels Through Southeast Asia

Jordan and I got to take a trip together and travel through China, Cambodia and Thailand.  Three weeks was definitely not enough time, but we sure got to see a lot!  This is mainly going to be about the pictures, but here are my thoughts on each country:

China: Rude people. Horrible air quality. People spitting everywhere. Everyone pushing. Scammers everywhere.  Cool sites to see.  Scary food. Funny English translations. Super cool art.
