Pad thai

Is kit cooking all the rage today? There are many services promising delivery of food in kits that are one assembles and cook supposedly saving time. Here is one partial kit from the supermarket shelve. Just three packages comprise this kit , the rest is up to you. There are countless recipes for Pad Thai out there so I bought this for a reference to what this interpretation is. The package suggest that you add chicken and vegetables, but they did not mention the noodles.

On the reverse, is listed want you will need. Depending on the stock of your pantry, obtain the necessary ingredients. Basically they have provided the seasonings for the dish. Packaging is excellent so that but his could be on the shelve for about a year.

Start off flashing the dried onion and hot pepper flakes, (check, I have that on hand also but going by the kit contents).

Very , very quickly…. As you can see it won’t take long to burn while you grab the camera…

Next add the chicken and stir fry until well seared,

About now you’ll want to activate the kitchen exhaust system , or hood fan!!!! …

Push aside the kitchen creating  a hot spot  for the beaten eggs.


Cook the egg about a minute, add the remaining veggies and stir as well…


Add the prepared noodles, 7 ounces of rice noodles. And of course toss….


Open packet 2 from the kit Pad Thai sauce and toss..

Then add the final packet, looks like sesame oil and some spices. Off the flame and serve.

I added a few shrimp later to the mix as some diners did not want fish with the chicken.


The final serving….

Slightly sweet and spicy finish , they heat kind of creeped up on you, but not over done.

Reasonably priced it gives me a start of this type of noodle dish.

FYI..


The green onions were hard to come by , as I had to resort to using a purchased prepared container of chopped green scallions at a high price. The bean sprouts were from a can , none available fresh and another year that I consider growing them myself. The meal cooked quickly, the noodles only be soaked in boiling water off heat while the dish is being prepared. The recommended optional garnish peanut addition (crushed) could be upgraded to cashews. My mind wanders to using some duck breast or duck thigh versus the chicken.

Now for  die hard kit people you could get possible some diced chicken (already diced), pre cut scallions, pre cut shredded carrot and make a kit for your friends to cook with.

Maple Custard Pie

A recipe made by Diane

From Martha Stewart

A sweet maple tasting custard in a brisee crust.

The custard has a sweet but not sugary sweet flavor and a hint of the maple flavor, the  crust has a rich buttery flavor and denser than a typical flour and shortening recipe.
