Today while the big kid was in school, we decided to take a fun trip to the local Asian market and check out the goods! Jacob loved the music they had playing and bounced in his seat the whole time.
I got some seasoning cubes to make Pho, some treats, coconut milk, spoons, fresh ginger, and some other veggies.
Hubby requested spring rolls to go with the pho so that's what I started doing while the broth was simmering. Spring rolls are pretty simple and I already had the rice paper. I cooked some chicken breast with Chinese 5 spice, and I cooked some rice noodles. You soak each rice paper in warm water for about 30 seconds the lay it on a plate. You layer your fillings then carefully wrap it up. I used lettuce, rice noodles, and the seasoned chicken. Yum!
For the pho I keep it simple by using the bouillion cube that has all of the seasoning in it. Each cube flavors 2 cups of water and I made 6 cups of broth. When it came to a boil I added noodles. When those were cooked I turned the heat off and added the cooked chicken and chopped green onions.
It was all delish and even Brad loved it! We each ate 2 spring rolls.
