I had never tried Thai food until I was a reporter in Manitowoc, Wisconsin. There, within walking distance of the newspaper office, was Newey's - an authentic Thai restaurant run by Newey Boonperm, a Thailand native who happened to marry a Wisconsin girl. I would go into detail about this amazing restaurant, but I'm not going to torment you - Newey's is no longer. All I know is that a lot of my reporter's salary went towards Newey's pad Thai, his amazing curry dishes and Thai coffee.
So when I was looking for some calorie-friendly Asian-inspired dishes the other day, I didn't even regard my husband's suspicion of seafood when I made this dish from Gina's Weight Watchers Recipes site. It wasn't as good as Newey's cooking, but it didn't matter - it was Thai-inspired food made in my very own kitchen. And my husband went for seconds. I call this a winner.
