pho.


This weekend, Mr. S. Squirrel was out of town, and most of our family was gone too, so the house was strangely empty and quiet. Obviously, the thing to do is to have Mrs. S. Squirrel over for the weekend!

We made cinnamon rolls and mimosas, then thrifted our little hearts out. I didn't find anything too special (well okay, some Christmas gifts, but I can't tell you about those. So don't even ask.)


Around lunch time, we realized just how starving we were. So we looked down the strip mall we were in to see if there were any good food places, and there it was! Vietnamese food.

For about $5 per person, we had spring rolls and pho. There was so much, we couldn't even finish it. 


If you guys haven't had pho, you should. It's a Vietnamese soup, and manages to be both light and filling, while also having lots of delicious flavor all mixed in happily. Eventually, we're going to try to make it around here (evidently, it requires boiling forever and THEN making it awesome) but until then, we'll probably head back to the Vietnam House and eat a few more bowls....
