I love Pho. It’s one of my favorite meals. Honestly I could eat it every day and still like it just as much. I think it’s the combination of the warmly spiced broth and the bean sprouts that do it for me. I was away from home for this challenge but it turned out quite well and I think that my brother and sister-in-law enjoyed it.
Do you know how hard it is to eat well when you are forced, yes that's right forced to make a cake in the middle of the week? I can tell you very. I haven’t eat any of it yet, but that is because it’s not quite done yet. I much prefer when the Daring Bakers make it a weekend date you need to post by or I like it when I read the posting date and can make the cake on the weekend.
Monday was fairly uneventful but I did have to go to that place where I do this thing with numbers. Also known as accounting. Yuck. I know that I should be grateful and all that for having a place that I can go and do that but some days it’s really hard to be grateful when your 5.5 month old is screaming and won’t sit in his saucer or his bassinet or his car seat. Also makes it hard for me to get anything done. Ah well. I’ll try again next week!
So I went to bed last night after an exhausting day of doing stuff. I totally forgot to post and that's why I am doing a quick recap right now. Tim got up pretty early and finished shingling the roof which was great because it’s all done!!! It looks pretty good and went a whole lot faster after he got the nail gun from a friend. Glad to be done with the roof other than the vents but I don’t think (I’ve under estimated how long things will take the entire way so far) it’ll take much to get that done. You can go to Tim’s Blog and look at the picture
So about two weeks about now I decided I would do a Thai inspired dinner for Riley, Tim and I. I love Thai and we go for it occasionally. Now let me tell you I have a new appreciation for the person in the kitchen at that place because I tried to make salad rolls and what the hell is up with them being so sticky that they are just like balls of goo that you can’t spread out because they are so hot and you are now missing the tips of your fingers from dipping them in the broth.
