A little bit of shallots, garlic, ginger, green onions, together with lean ground turkey make a simply delicious filling. Then, with that red oil sauce… it’s just divine! Beware though, that sauce is not low calorie. Ben was eating it like soup until he realized, and then he said, “Oh my.”

Ben’s been working so many late nights that we only get family dinner about once a week. It’s been like this since the beginning of the year, so I’m looking forward to June when his work schedule is a little more balanced. All of us sitting together at the dinner table is something I cherish, so I can’t wait to have more of that again.

    This really makes me want to have pho! And this pregnancy it is really hard for me to know what I want to eat:) I feel your pain about Ben’s work. My husband works a lot these days too and it is far from ideal. That is our choice, we didn’t want to delegate the care of our kids to a daycare or nanny so he is working afternoons and weekend while I come home from work after naps, but even if we are so happy with our choice to raise our babies ourselves, it is hard at times! June is right around the corner, hang in there!
