My improvised pad thai

I invented my own pad thai recipe today and even though it looks kinda gross, it was really really good. It even sort of tasted like pad thai.

You’ll be disappointed if you came here looking for the recipe, though, because I don’t even know what it was. I just knew I had a craving for something spicy with peanuts, so I just started putting things in a pot until it started tasting like what I was craving.

Most had nothing whatsoever to do with pad thai sauce, but it worked out. I guess with a craving like that all I really needed was peanut butter and tabasco sauce. I think there were at least four other random sauces thrown in there too in an attempt to give it the right texture and flavour that I wanted. That’s how most of my cooking works.

It even started to get kinda gross at the last few bites, just like the pad thai you get in TikiMing (for the Montrealers) or Thai Hut (for the Saint Johners).
