Pad Frai

So, the Pad Thai recipe I tried tonight was… not Pad Thai.
Not even close, really.

But it was good. It tasted like stir-fry. I’m guessing it probably took me about 45 minutes to do all this… because chopping all the veggies is time consuming (for me).

Therefore, I’m calling this a win and I’m sharing the recipe with all my alterations.
(Obviously I’ve named it “Pad Frai.”)

26 in 52: Problems already.

Ok, so as you know (or maybe you don't), I'm reading 26 books in 52 weeks.
My first book, which I technically started in 2009, is Say You're One of Them.

I'm trying to decide whether it's going to be worth the struggle to get through it. The stories are good and touching. Childhood in third world area is hard. The first story was about childhood prostitution and, basically, drug use to numb the pain of starving. The second story is touching on poverty and AIDS.
