Easy Meals: Pad Thai

We love international cuisine n our house. We love getting to go out to eat Chinese food, Thai food, Sushi, and Korean food. But that can get expensive, especially when you are buying food for 5 or more people. Restaurants are great, but we love being able to get the restaurant style food we love at home too.

Recently we stumbled upon a great Pad Thai recipe that keeps our Thai cravings to a minimum. It is a great and simple dish to make, and it can be fed to larger groups very easily. The best part about this recipe is that you can alter it to fit your family and their tastes. My husband loves Pad Thai but cannot stand having too many beansprouts, my kids favorite part is the shrimp and most restaurants only give one to two shrimp per person, and I love all the extra veggies. So when I make it at home I can make more of what we love.

This recipe is from Seonyoung Longest, a blog written by Seonyoung that features some of the MOST amazing Asian dishes you will ever taste. She even has recipes for drinks and desserts. You will love all of the amazing videos and tutorials she uploads. It makes it so much easier to see exactly how it should be done! These are very traditional recipes and taste amazing! Be sure to check them out when you get the full recipe and tutorial for Pad Thai. You will be glad you did!

Best Books: Humphrey the Hamster Books

Are you and your kids looking for a new book to read? How about a a whole series? If you haven’t heard about The World According to Humphrey then you need to listen up and pay attention. The World According to Humphrey is the first book in a series lovingly known as the Humphrey Hamster books. The Humphrey books are written by Betty G. Birney, and they follow a sweet and lovable class pet named Humphrey through his life in classroom 26. The books are great for ages 8-12. The books follow Humphrey as he navigates his way through interactions with the children, teacher, and lessons that are in classroom 26. Humphrey has all the same fears, likes, and interactions as the kids in his class. It allows the reader to understand and experience all of the realities of being a kid in school and dealing with relationships, homework, and life all through the safe and knowing point of view of the classroom pet.

This first book introduces Humphrey and some of the kids in the classroom. It even introduces the teacher Mrs. Brisbane, who Humphrey swears hates him and is out to get him. Kids will love this book because it is so easy to relate to. Humphrey gives them a wonderful proxy to experience the harsh world of growing up without being faced with actually being the center of the story. Parents will love that the books will keep bringing kids back for more.
