Recipe: Thai Noodles

I'm on a roll! I made two meals in three days that were restaurant quality. I'm convinced that ANY person, ANYwhere can cook a restaurant quality meal three times a week with practice, patience, and organization. So, with some help from a VegNews' bare minimum video recipe, my own Thai taste buds, and a friend who has cooking experience(She graciously typed up the recipe), I created and devoured this meal a few nights ago. Please do yourself a favor and try this recipe. For years I've been a Thai food fanatic and couldn't fathom making any at home. But alas, I did and it was AMAZING!!
