Okay so thiiiiis is the last of the Asiany foods for a while.

I think. I’m not even going to glance at my planner to double check either. Crap. Now that I said that I HAVE to look at it. I’m nervous. Why am I nervous. That’s silly. Just a quick look-see won’t hurt anything, right?

Okay hold on.

I’m right! That planner just got BURNED, y’all. Boooooomidy boom boom. (I wish I knew what that meant.)

Okay, so these Shrimp Pad Thai cuppies: there’s a method to my madness here, and je pense que you’re gonna totes dig.

And it goes like this.

Game day season = game day food. Game day food = little and big parties with a little and a lot of people.

The little and lots of people = little and lots of hunger. Little and lots of hunger = a rowdy, unhinged desire to nibble, munch, graze, sip, gobble, nosh, devour and inhale game day foods of the sorts.

The rowdy, unhinged desire to nibble, munch, graze, sip, gobble, nosh, devour and inhale game day foods of the sorts does not always = the rowdy, unhinged desire to nibble, munch, graze, sip, gobble, nosh, devour and inhale game day foods like sliders, fries, dips, wings, and the alike.

The non-rowdy, unhinged desire to nibble, munch, graze, sip, gobble, nosh, devour and inhale game day foods like sliders, fries, dips, wings, and the alike = that of great confusion, yes. (Very much unlike these sentences you are reading.)

The human sapien beings who doth possess the non-rowdy, unhinged desire to nibble, munch, graze, sip, gobble, nosh, devour and inhale game day foods like sliders, fries, dips, wings, and the alike = a great need to be cared for as well during game day season.

The great need to be cared for as well during game day season = my lil’ noggin rising from hibernation nap town to combine two towering forces of the beyond to create one mammoth appetizer so sublime, the Mayan calendar itself crumbles and weeps at its new threatening rival.

My lil’ noggin rising from hibernation nap town to combine two towering forces of the beyond to create one mammoth appetizer so sublime, the Mayan calendar itself crumbles and weeps at its new threatening rival = these pretty dope Shrimp Pad Thai cuppies.

These pretty dope Shrimp Pad Thai cuppies = world domination all up in your mouth hole.

Clear as mud.

Shrimp Pad Thai Cups:

What it took for about 24 cups:

* 24 wonton wrappers
* 7 oz pad thai noodles
* 2 Tbs. brown sugar
* 2 Tbs. soy sauce
* 1 Tbs. fish sauce
* 2 Tbs. fresh lime juice
* 1 Tbs. sriracha or chili garlic sauce
* 3 Tbs. canola oil
* 2 scallions, finely sliced
* 24 large frozen shrimp, thawed, peeled and deveined
* 5 cloves garlic, minced
* 1 cup fresh bean sprouts
* 1/4th cup unsalted peanuts, chopped
* fresh cilantro for garnish

Preheat oven to 350.

Lightly oil each side of the wonton wrappers, and carefully press them into each muffin tin. Bake for 5 to 7 minutes, until crispy and slightly browned. Set aside.

Cook the noodles according to the package, then drain. Set aside.

In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, soy sauce, fish sauce, lime juice and chili paste.

Heat a large skillet over medium-high. Add the oil to the pan. Add the scallions, shrimp and minced garlic. Stir-fry roughly 2 minutes, until shrimp is done. Add the cooked noodles and stir to toss. Add the sauce and toss to combine.

Using tongs, place a small amount of the pad Thai inside each wonton cup. Nestle a single shrimp in the pad Thai nest, and garnish with bean sprouts and peanuts.

Serve to your mouth. I MEAN your guests.
