Pad Thai

Written by Kajsa IngelssonApril 4, 2019

This is one of Mr. C’s all time favorites, the holy PAD THAI! You can add tofu if you want, but we don’t eat tofu in my family, so you gotta take care of that part by yourself. I’m not looking down on tofu or anything alright, it’s just that it doesn’t make either of us feel good when we eat it. You gotta listen to your body as we are all different 🙂
