Kitchen Table Memiors: Thai Fried Rice
Oh how I love Thai Cuisine! My very first experience with Thai food was in the second or third grade at a Blue Birds/Camp Fire Girls meeting. This wonderful lady from Thailand came in as our guest speaker and taught us how to make Kow Pad (Thai Fried Rice). I had never had anything like it before and so simple and yummy! I have since had many wonderful Thai dishes but there is nothing like that first experience as a child trying something exciting and new. I like to make this anytime i have some leftover cooked rice.
