After a bad pho lunch yesterday I had to make it up to myself with better homemade. With dumplings too, my food world is whole again. My husband shared my enthusiasm, and added that I am my mother's daughter in the kitchen. Happy Sunday.
In case you missed this, my 85-year-old Bo Gia (Old Daddy in Vietnamese) sent it for sharing. (It's bun cha.) http://www.vox.com/2016/5/23/11745830/obama-bourdain-hanoi?yptr=yahoo Link
Except the cilantro, I grew all the other herbs (Thai basil, mint, and culantro). Extra homemade pho pride today. Warm weather is great for Southeast Asian herbs!!!
Happy Lunar New Year! May the Year of the Monkey bring you and your family a bounty of good food, cheer, and satisfaction.
