    Where did you get the printable coupon off Thai Kitchen coconut milk? I’ve been looking for one of those. Thanks!

    I don’t know what a cookie straw is, but my waistband is probably better off not knowing:) Looks like a really good week to me!

    After some hunting… I’ve updated the post to include the Thai Kitchen printable link. I hope that helps! You can get free Thai Kitchen noodles at Publix or use it to stock up on other items – like I did with the coconut milk.

    While I’m at it, I wanted to point out a feature of the site that might be useful when this happens. Search in the search box (at the bottom of the right hand column) for thai kitchen. It’ll come up with all the posts that mention it and it’s easy to spot the coupon link. Again, I hope that helps!

    Thanks for the coupons & the explanation re searching—yes, it helps a lot!
    The recipe looks good, too.
