Yesterday, Gene and I drove into Kennewick to try lunch at Hoang's Saigon Restaurant which is located on W. Columbia Drive. We usually buy our noodles and other staples for stir fry at the Asian store connected to this restaurant. It's been almost 3 years since we moved here and just never made the time to go there for lunch. We will definitely be going back. While the owners have not wasted money and energy on the atmosphere, one should never ever judge a book by its cover. Authentic. Great. Food.
We killed two birds with one stone in our trip. I have been wanting to venture into some new Thai dishes at home but didn't have the right ingredients. The book pictured here was bought at our favorite Thai place and the owner has made the recipes really easy to follow. I think. I'll get back to you on that.
I'm making Pad Thai tonight. I'm not venturing into Tofu just yet, however, I do love Tofu when it's made right ~ fried, that is.
I also bought some dark rye flour today as I'm hoping to try my hand at a loaf of homemade rye bread. I've never made it before but it's one of Gene's favorite things in the whole world. If it all works out, I'll be posting photos and recipes to my other blog, What's Cooking.
Do you have a recipe you've been saving and wanting to try?
