A massive craving for pad thai hit me on boxing day. The craving hit at 5:55 pm, 5 minutes before the grocery store by my house closed early for the night. So what did I do?
I ran to the grocery store and grabbed all the supplies I needed…or what I thought was all I needed. It was exactly 6:05 when I realized that I had no limes. How do you make pad thai without limes?!?!
You can’t, not real pad thai, so I made what I could with what I had. And lucky for my craving it was delicious, really delicious!
