Vietnamese Chicken Pho. This recipe is always a winner. I know it’s summer, but I was really craving this hot soup. In college, I used to love my pho loaded up with hoisin sauce, but nowadays, I love it with siracha. Even the girls love pho and Brave douses hers with siracha (I have to tell her to stop)!
Week 7/28 – 8/1
Monday: Spaghetti and Herb Filled Meatballs
Wednesday: White Bean Chili (probably again)
Friday: Sushi/pizza night
Ben and I realized typical American food isn’t our thing. Sure, we love a gourmet burger here and there, and maybe a good steak once a year, but our preference would be Asian or Mexican foods, or the fusion of both (like this and this recipe). Of course, anything that is spicy is also our fave; we also love the flavors in Indian cuisine. We are pretty adventurous when it comes to trying things, and of course Ben will always look for healthy options. Everyone is always amazed with his ability to practice self control when it comes to food. I get weak in the knees when it comes to dessert. I think eating out is also difficult because of his pickiness with the lack of healthy options out there, so we prefer to cook at home and do our own spin on restaurant favorite dishes to make them healthy.
