Pickled Cucumbers
Last night was a night for international adventure. Countries visited: Vietnam, Italy, and France. I had Pho, a delightful Vietnamese beef broth soup, for the first time. Yum! As movies had a place in the line-up of events, we ordered the Pho to-go and perused the Asian market next door. It is so entertaining wandering around, checking out the variety, deciding where to be adventurous and where to be prudent. We went with the pickled cucumbers, not so adventurous. But they were packed in soy sauce, so ultimately they tasted like soy sauce with a vaguely pickle texture. The lady who worked there told us the pickles were best served with garlic... she was right.

Also entertaining, Pho requires large bowls. I do not have large enough bowls to accommodate the noodles, beef, bean sprouts, cilantro, etc. etc. etc. Thus mixing bowls acted as a stand-in.
