It’s been about 6 weeks since our Thailand trip.

And yes, I needed a teeny tiny break from Thai food. But let’s be real. That only lasted like 0.2345 seconds.

So I’m back on the Thai food binge for the foreseeable future, starting with this noodle soup.

Now you know I love a red curry. But I love it even more with rice noodles.

It’s so cozy, it’s so comforting, and it’s so fragrant with all the cilantro, basil and lime juice. Although I always add a little bit of extra lime juice to my bowl for that extra zesty kick!
