Vearing from Vietnam

Okay, so these past few weeks have literally been a bit more crazy than I like to live, so much so, that we finished Vietnam last Tuesday and I still haven’t had a chance to post. 

We also opted, as we had so many dinners and nightly engagements, to have a Vietnamese lunch…..this time at a restaurant.  It was delicious!  I do have some Opo squash that I purchased at our local Farmer’s Market to use for a Vietnamese soup and hope to still do that soon, but really, the chance to just sit and be served was quite enjoyable.

What's Pho Lunch 🙂

 
 
Phở is a traditional Vietnamese-style soup with various different fillings.  We have driven past this restaurant several times, but never had a chance to try it out.  In fact, it was our first time trying Vietnamese food (except for Brian who is a big fan of Phở).
 
Traditional Pho with Beef Meatballs
We also enjoyed some additional items:

 

Rice Noodle Rolls with Peanut Dipping Sauce

Thai Iced Tea (Not Vietnamese, but a personal fav)

Phở with Chicken

This pork dish was amazing!

Vegetable Stir Fry

During our last few days in learning about Vietnam, we also made some “rainbow rice”, using vinegar, food coloring and a plastic container to shake it in. 

Shake-it, shake-it!

We dried out the wet rice in the oven for about 15 minutes

 

So much fun for little hands!

Thank you, Vietnam!  We wish we had more time to spend and learn about your rice-patty filled country.  We loved listening to the zither as we did our artwork and we especially enjoyed the delicious flavors of your unique cuisine.
