Photo from the last time I made Pad Thai
Never a dull moment, right before dinner, we had the added challenge of a water main break on the island, and a boil water notice for the next 48 hours. That makes washing veggies and dishes a little more challenging! We didn't really need water for (un)cooking, but raw meal prep tends to use a lot of bowls, knives and blenders, plus you need to wash the produce.
Water main break aside, my brother helped prepare the veggies. He washed them in a clean bowl with bottled water. Kindo of like camping :) Then he spiralized the noodles. There is something really fun about spiralizing.
For this dish, there is not a lot to do other than chop veggies. So the prep was pretty easy. Then all of the ingredients for the sauce go in the Vitamix, and that's it!
We also tried lemongrass soda and ginger beer (no alcohol, it's like a root beer but ginger flavor). The consensus on the drinks was: BLECH! But the soup, and the pad thai were great!

I'm not too worried about the photos- it was fun! Thanks to Joan and Vince! Let's do it again... say, Monday? : )
