5 Minute Thai Ramen

Pin It!

It was only about a year ago that I first tried Thai food. My hubby had been begging me to get some with him and for some reason I really didn't think I was going to like it, so I kept putting it off. After I finally gave in and let him get his precious Thai food, and after I took that first bite of Pad Thai, I knew my life was about to change forever. I fell head-over-heels in love with it! Who knew that peanut sauce would become one of my all-time favorite sauces in the whole wide world? I sure didn't!

It's because of my darling husband that I like many of the foods I do. Without him, I would have never been adventurous enough to try oysters for the first time (which I did this past weekend!) and discover that they are mouth-wateringly delicious. Now every time we take a trip to the beach I know I will be ordering some! Yum x 1000. 

Last night I was really craving something new and was really in the mood to make something I'd never made before... so after searching around Pinterest for a while, I stumbled across a couple of different recipes involving Top Ramen noodles and peanut butter! I knew I could kick it up a notch and create something more amazing, so I grabbed my packages of noodles and headed to the kitchen to make what ended up being my favorite easy side dish ever. It would also be a perfect lunch if you just threw in a little roasted chicken! Or you don't even have to throw in the chicken... you can not throw in the chicken and it would be equally as amazing for lunch! ;) Plus, it's even better the next day!

Make it, devour it and let me know what you think!
