An Easy Thai Meal

 As a mom, I've learned that dinner time can be really simple or really difficult. There's truly no in between. For us, we have a really good system and rarely run into issues at dinner time. 

When pregnant, and since 2020, we were getting weekly meal boxes from Everyplate. While we did enjoy it, we grew tired of the recipes after 3 years and wanted to add in some dishes to our rotation that we could have leftovers of and eat several times. 
Additionally, we wanted to add in more clean ingredients and different protein and grain options since Jennings was beginning to eat a lot of the food we were serving. 

Anyway, we are a few months into cooking our own recipes and truly loving it. 

Tonight's meal was one we really, really enjoyed and one we will definitely make again. 
Additionally, if you are in the midst of baby-led weaning, I'll share a picture of J's plate at the end.
