Happy Birthday Stella!
When I really thought about it, I realized what a perfect choice pho was. You take something quite simple and make something quite fabulous. A little time, a little love, a few pearls of wisdom and a little patience are sure to pay off. My mom always says to eat a long noodle on your birthday for longevity. So, here's my recipe for pho from a previous post. It's the same recipe I used this time around but for the blanching of the bones and meat. I roasted them in the oven instead of blanching them. Everything else was as before. Warm and hearty, just like Stella.
oh man.. this is all so true!! and you totally get stella's vibe in that picture. she hasn't changed much huh? can't wait to make this pho. awesomeReplyDelete
Yep, she's just as sweet and squeezable as she was in that photo. It's my favorite photo of her. It says it all.ReplyDelete
