Show Us Your Life Main Dish Recipes-Shrimp Pad Thai

I decided to participate this week with Show Us Your LIfe over at Kelly's Korner

One of my favorite recipes to make is this Shrimp Pad Thai recipe, its so easy and literally takes no time at all.  I found the recipe from myrecipes.com but I think it originally came from Cooking Light.  I have also shredded up cooked chicken and used that instead of shrimp.  I often use the thin rice noodles because my grocery store doesn't always carry the wide ones and we actually prefer it made with the skinny noodles.  Another change is I don't use bean sprouts I will use matchstick carrots instead, plus it adds more color I imagine you could substitute any kind of little vegetables if you have something else on hand

I'm Katie a 27 year old mommy and wife. Welcome to my blog where I will chronicle the happenings of my life as I find the balance between being both SAHM by day and CVICU nurse by night.

I love Jesus and strive to be more like Christ every day. Running, reading, and cooking are some of my favorite past-times. I love photography but I am no pro, but it helps I have such a cute subject to practice on!!
