Pad Thai Life

Pad Thai is the most delicious “anytime” food. I can, will and do it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. If you have never had it it is like you have never been awake for the sunrise, or something. Traditionally served in the West you can count on it containing rice noodle, egg, peanuts and a melody of other ingredients sounding often like scallion/onion, chili paste, oil and perhaps┬átofu. Chicken and shrimp are common ingredients but vegetarian is also great. It is best with fresh springy bean sprouts not of the green kind.

There is at least one frozen GF Pad Thai on the market made by Tandoor Chef. The box looks similar to the right but it actually is marked as gluten-free and I agree after having consumed manyMany boxes over the years.

Of course Pad Thai is best made fresh. Good luck on making it as I believe their is a secret potion/incantation or club you have to belong to to make it well…

You’ll find it at any Thai restaurant and I can’t recall once having ordered Pad Thai and found it disagreeable as far as being GF. Your mileage will vary. I find that fresh lime really heightens the dish…

Oh ya. If you are going to a Thai restaurant ask for mango and sticky rice for dessert. Oh my. If they know what you are talking about and the mango is in season and they know how to make it with coconut milk…. Wow. What a great dessert/meal…


8te: Whipped Cream

A squirt on waffles

Another squirt on pancakes

Oh, and a spot on the black coffee

How about a dollop on my GF finger

Now, I agree that fresh made whipped cream is the best but I’m just sayin’ that a can of whipped cream will transform a GF meal, snack or drink quickly, sonicaly and happily. It’s rocket science!

8te: Trader Joe’s Pancakes

I enjoy these Gluten Free frozen pancakes a lot. I could eat them by the box load. It seems others enjoy too as it is hard to get a hold of ’em. They seem to sell out tre quick.

Right, I find that the best way to cook em is zap em for the recommended amount then put them in the toaster oven thing. They are real fleshy out of the mic. so there isn’t much chance of ’em standing up in a vertical toaster…

8te: Mummy Food

.5 cup chopped dates

.5 cup chopped dried black mission figs

1.5 cup water

1 tablespoon cornmeal

soak dates and figs overnight in water. cook in saucepan over low heat stirring for at least 10 minutes whilst thinking of egypt, sphynx and of course mummies. add the cornmeal slowly. makes about 4 servings.

SERVE WITH MILK, this makes all the difference in the world be it ancient or modern…. goes great as a breakfast food with coffee.
