    WorkingMom2three's Note:

    Thai noodles with peanuts and seafood. In Thailand, sugar and vinegar are seasonings on the table like salt and pepper. This dish would not be preseasoned in Thailand - however, most US restaurants serve it that way, but feel free to work with the sugar and vinegar to taste. The fish sauce is a must - if you do not like fish sauce, you don't like Pad Thai. This recipe is originally from William Crawford and Kamolmal Pootaraka's Thai Home Cooking: From Kamolamal's Kitchen.

      very bland and needs a lot of kick to make it not boring. my children love pad thai from restaurants, but they would not eat this. made me very sad after all the hard work putting it together. i will probably try this again... but a lot will be added to it.

      The seasonings were ok, but when I doubled the sauce it still wasn't enough.
