This weekend has been pretty amazing. I took a zillion photos — 244 to be exact &thats not including the millions on my phone. We had tons of amazing meals, (Marlowe’s first) zoo time, adult time, lots of clapping and high fives from Marlowe, a tiny bit of sleep… it was great. I’ll post pictures later this week, I’m sure 🙂
Today we had a pho party at Michelles. Her mom spent allll morning making beef broth for everyone (I got a vegan version) and prepping all the soup ingredients. Asian food is actually one of my least favorites, but lately I’ve been going through an Asian loving phase. I’ve been attempting to make more dishes at home (rice noodles &stir fries) and craving vegetable sushi. Who knows how long this Asian kick will last, but for now it’s been pretty awesome. Especially when its an authentic meal made by a crazy old Asian lady who looks 30 years younger than she actually is 🙂
Choosing your ingredients. I had fried bean curd instead of beef and vegetable broth. noodles. green onion. onion. sprouts. two types of mint leaves. chili pepper.
