I have only cooked with rice noodles two other times in my life, this would be my third. I read the package directions. It seemed pretty straightforward. Oh, my friends, it was anything but. I really should have sought the advice of Handsome Chris before I ruined this beautiful pot of Pho.
It was just the youngest and I, she made a face that said "what is up with you failing at every supper you cook this week?" I suggested that we go to Pho Square then to Red Mango for dessert. She countered with scratching pho altogether and just having Red Mango.
It is a beautiful summer evening, it is already 7:30, we are both starving. Fine by me.
Red Mango is a slightly healthier option than eating ice cream for dinner. OK, perhaps not when topped with gummi bears and peanut butter cups.
