Bang Bang Shrimp Pasta

I almost couldn’t get a blog up today, but thanks to my good friend, I am able to.

Here’s the story.

I may have broken my camera.

I had homemade bone broth in a jar in my bag and forgot about it, the jar opened up and spilled all over my bag. Well, I had just finished shooting my friend’s son’s birthday party.  

When I got home I took my camera apart and it’s now drying out, so we will see by the end of the week whether MomNoms will continue or not.

I am using her Nikon for the time being and it’s so much different than my Canon, so my photos are a little different than I’m used to, different than you’re used to.

That was pretty much the icing on the awful week that I had.

I needed to make something different, that made me feel better.

Pasta always makes me feel better.

I have seen bang bang pasta going around the internet and wanted to make my own version.  Including a Thai chili sauce that is homemade.
