So the boys are out as usual. Yaseen is actually having exams right now. Can you imagine? I don’t remember school being so strict like this when I was a kid. Here I’m alone at home most of the time during the week. If I don’t go out for lunch or shopping with friends, I will just cook something simple so I can catch up with household work and stuff.
So I’m making Sriracha Noodle today. Sriracha is just one of those condiments that are so essential in Thai household. I usually use it on top of omelet or just use it as a dipping sauce. This recipe is super bursting with flavor. If you like something pungent and spicy, you need to try this.
