10 Take Out Meals You Can Make At Home, Because There's Life Beyond Seamless

I love ordering food as much as the next gal but I was starting to get a little self-conscious when the Thai delivery guy began to know my order by heart. Then, when I found out my favorite Thai place "no longer delivers to [my] area," (according to Seamless) I took it as a hint that I need to a) start cooking more and b) never show my face there again.

Luckily summer time is better suited for pasta salads than hot noodles anyway, but still, I miss that pad Thai lunch special. I have yet to find a Tom Kha recipe as good as theirs, but in the mean time I did find 10 awesome at-home recipes that mimic your favorite take out dishes. Enjoy!
