I recently went from being a mom of one to a mom of three. That’s right, I gave birth to twins six weeks ago and I’m still trying to adjust to this new normal! Three kids are a handful, but having two babies that have in-sync crying schedules along with a 4-year-old is overwhelming at times. For that very reason, I need to plan our family suppers a week ahead. I need recipes that are tasty, but quick and easy to make at the same time.
Did you know that peanut butter is not just for kids sandwiches in lunch boxes? With one jar of Kraft Smooth Peanut Butter, you can find unending inspiration. It can be used to create many tasty savory dishes like these Spicy Peanut Noodles. It makes so many meals taste better!
In this first recipe (part 2 coming soon!), Kraft Peanut Butter is used as the base to create a unique meal with a sweet kick and is full of great Thai flavour. This dish will make it’s way again and again onto your weekly menu rotation for sure. So, don’t let the list of ingredients intimidate you- it is so easy to toss together and so delicious that it will quickly become one of your family’s favourite go-to meals. And you thought peanut butter was just a spread!
