Spicy Thai Noodles

I crave thai food. Crave it like a pregnant woman craving pickles and chocolate (do pregnant woman actually crave this? I know it's the stereotype).
Have you ever had one of those days where it's physically impossible for you to get full? Well that was me this weekend and the only thing I wanted to eat was thai food.
What does that mean? That means I went to Little Saigon for a food shopping spree. I picked up red curry paste, fresh tofu (they make it there!) noodles, thai basil, cilantro, HOT peppers- basically tons of Asian goodies.
As soon as I got home the stove was on and the knives were flying (not literally-ekk!). I came up with thai red curry noodles with tofu complete with plenty of chilies, garlic and thai basil.
I'll admit, I made a huge batch of this- more than any one person should eat- and I ate every deliciously spicy bite of it.
But I'm lying here now, NOT HUNGRY. YAY!! :)

What do you eat when you have a hunger that feels like it will never be satisfied?

That looks really, really good. And I love that you can get homemade tofu there. I don't know if it's available around these parts...oh well.

hey cara,
I used Vietnamese rice noodles, I can't read the package... lol sorry

I have no idea exactly how they make it I just know they have tofu and soy milk homemade- just on the side, they make it daily, I love it

you'll see it's always Thai time for Teddy haha- I don't think I've EVER said no to thai food or 'I don't feel like thai' :)

thanks for commenting!!

My dad is in international insurance… so his job took us all over.

Your Thai noodles look so amazingly good right now that you have ME craving them too… but unlike you, I don’t have any!

I don’t know of a single pregnant woman who craved pickles during her pregnancy… but I DO have a (non-pregnant) friend who likes pickles so much that she eats them with her ice cream—no joke!
