Oh wow! Thanks for the shout-out.

And oddly enough, I just had drunken noodles last weekend for the first time and have been trying to figure out how to recreate the magic at home. Sweet!

That WAS a great post KitschenBitsch.

And thank you Dan, as always, for the link love. I am just so lucky to have the Thai and other Asian markets nearby to get the right ingredients. With the proper sauces and herbs and a wok, it's surprisingly easy to recreate Asian cuisine at home. Believe me, I was shocked!
