Okay. The last few posts haven’t had anything really to do with food. I seriously don’t even remember what I’ve been eating lately, frozen burritos, and had some dinner at a friend’s for her birthday. Last night I made some Bun Nem Nuong (Noodles with Cured Ground Pork). I’m eating that for a while because I had a chunk of the nem nuong to eat that was in my freezer. And I really do like it. I also went to the store yesterday to get some fresh produce.
It was the first time I made it on my own, so I didn’t brown the meat enough last night. When I did it again today, it was a lot better but I was starving so I scarfed that down before I thought to take a new picture of it. All that is on a bed of shredded green lettuce, spearmint, and fish mint. I also made fish sauce to go with it to mix things up like you’re supposed to. Fish sauce (Nuoc Nam) was the first authentic thing I ever learned how to make, my mom always made me do it when I was growing up. I mean, I’m not counting rice here cause all I did was stick it in the cooker.
But this is how the dish looks like mixed and everything. I really like my veggies so I always put an abundance of them in there. I’m really bummed that I forgot to get the bean sprouts when I went to the market yesterday too. I was super excited about those bean sprouts, I was going to do the pad thai again but with bean sprouts this time. And this was going to have bean sprouts, and I was even going to maybe make meatball pho to get rid of the meatballs and pho noodles that I have.
But that’s about it when it comes to delicious food. I had another frozen burrito for lunch with a yogurt and my standard cereal for breakfast. I was going to make apple crisp again tonight, but I woke up from a 2 hour nap at 8pm and all my motivation has left me and it’s getting a bit late for that. Perhaps I’ll do that tomorrow.
And on a side note, I’m meeting with the potential roommate (hopefully confirmed future roommate) for lunch tomorrow after class and all that jazz. HOPE THINGS GO WELL FOR ME!!!
