Today is a rainier day than Wednesday was. I just love the sound the cars make when they are driving down the wet roads.

Tonight Kevin and I are going on a date. I do hope that it's not wet out tonight, because we're planning on going putt-putt golfing. We're also going to a Vietnamese Pho Noodle place. We were so happy to find this restaurant! It had been a long time since we had Pho noodle soup. It's so delicious, and one of the foods I consider a "comfort food". It's really a simple soup. It's just a large bowl with rice noodles, thinly sliced beef, sliced green onions, onions, cilantro, and broth. They give you a tray of basil, lemon wedges, and mong bean sprouts. I never add anything to mine. I love it just the way it is. Kevin likes to liberally add prune sauce (there is a name for it, but I can't remember what it is right now), and he also adds basil and mong bean sprouts.

Mmmmmm, I can't wait for dinner! We always loved to go out for Pho noodle soup when we lived in California, and rather missed this soup. One night I had a hankering for it, so I looked in the phone book, and sure enough found this restaurant! The restaurant owner is a sweet lady named Rosie, and she came out and talked to us for a bit. She even gave us a discount. =)

Have you ever lost a shoe while driving down the road? I haven't! *Grin* This is something that I have puzzled ever since I was little. Surely you've seen shoes by the side of the road? Or maybe in the middle of the road? HOW do they get there? My shoes have always stayed firmly on my feet! Kevin and I had this discussion last Wednesday night, because we saw a shoe in the middle of the road. The only conclusion we came to was that perhaps they fall off the back of trucks. That many people drive around with shoes in the back of their trucks? Hahaha Oh well, I guess I'll quit worrying about it.

Have a blessed day!

Sounds tasty! I need to try that. Only thing is what if I get a nasty batch on my first taste? How will I know it? Oh well I'll still try and find a place and try it.

About shoes on the side of the road...when I rode the school bus, the older kids would toss the younger kids shoes out the bus window all the time!

I like it HOT! I put all the stuff in it. and love that garlic chile stuff. mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. I craved it pragnant and it settled my tummy! AHHHHH! Gotta eat it with a little Kim Chi!

Tammy said...

Sarah, what is Kim Chi?

Oh, and the prune or plum sauce is called "hoisin sauce".

Carolyn said...

Sounds like you had a great evening! :)

Kimchi is an aquired taste! You can get it in the healthy section of the grocery store usually. It is next to the bagged salad and the refrigerated sourkrout.
It is a fermented cabbage with ginger, salt, garlic, and hot chilies.
Kinda like Korean style sourkrout.
Warning! Most people don't like this right away!
