Hello there Internet.
It is Friday, which means it is time for FFwD.
Today’s recipe is Spicy Vietnamese Chicken Noodle Soup
Now I live in Pothole, Ohio.
Which means I don’t have many grocery stores to choose from, and the ones that I do have to choose from have your basic essentials, with some “exotic” choices thrown in…like Ghiradelli chocolate or basmatti rice.
Star Anise~~gag a maggot! I can not stand licorice
Dried red chillies~~not on your life
Chinese egg noodles~~couldn’t find it to save my life. Substituting rice
Asian Fish sauce~~not even on the radar. Substituting soy sauce
So my recipe would be more like “nowhere near Spicy kinda sorta Oriental Chicken Rice Soup”….if I had actually made it.
I had every intention to do so. I purchased all the things I could from the local Stuffmart and was ready.
Then a couple of the girl’s friends showed up after school and commandeered the kitchen.
For 3 hours.
By the time the kids left, it was 6:30 and I wasn’t about to cook anything!
We ate leftovers instead.
