One Skillet Dinner: Chicken Pad Thai

Quick and Easy Chicken Pad Thai | PasstheSushi.com

The other day we found ourselves at a mountain bike store (go on, show me your surprised face) for gear that would keep us just a wee bit warmer with the recent temperature drops. We only purchased two things but our bill was just shy of $100.00. I would have never known bicycling was an expansive hobby. My lowest bill yet in a store was $50 or so I think. And that was just for tubes in the tires. (To be fair, they are fancy tubes that promise to not go flat, called tubeless… but you get my point). Between mountain biking, wood working, photography, and eating well, I forbid any more expensive hobbies.

If we somehow manage to find ourselves twiddling our thumbs long enough to want another hobby, I told him it was dried macaroni, glue sticks, and finger paint all the way.

In an attempt to raise some funds for said hobbies, I’m throwing a little plug in here for my Etsy Shop. I make little hostess aprons which are a lot of fun and great gifts. And yes, before anyone mentions it, I know making aprons is just one more hobby, but really, look how cute they are? I have like three I keep on stand by in my own kitchen. So, go on, check out the aprons, fund my addictions hobbies!
