This Pho Recipe is Lit!
I love this pho soup, especially during cold winters like this. I tried it for the first time at my job. They liked to bring in specialty guest restaurants throughout the week. I like to be adventurous and thought I would give this place of pleasantries a try. I mean it had a few things I liked, cilantro, meat, lime. For some reason, I associated it with tacos al pastor. I guess due to the cilantro and lime in the mix....I don't know, shut up. Anyway, I tasted it and became instantly addicted. The flavors were amazing and so fresh, so clean! I was in heaven! I searched the internet left and right, and found a recipe that even I can do! You know, cause I'm a klutz.
P.S. Can someone tell me how to pronounce it? I'm sure it can't be Fo', can it?
Authentic Pho Recipe
4 pounds beef soup bones
1 onion, unpeeled and cut in half
5 slices fresh ginger
1 tablespoon salt
2 pods star anise
2 1/2 tablespoons fish sauce
4 quarts water
1 (8 ounce) package dried rice noodles
1 1/2 pounds beef top sirloin, thinly sliced
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
1 tablespoon chopped green onion
1 1/2 cups bean sprouts
1 bunch Thai basil
1 lime, cut into 4 wedges
1/4 cup hoisin sauce (optional)
1/4 cup chile-garlic sauce (such as Sriracha®) (optional)
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
Place beef bones on a baking sheet and roast in the preheated oven until browned, about 1 hour.
Place onion on a baking sheet and roast in the preheated oven until blackened and soft, about 45 minutes.
Place bones, onion, ginger, salt, star anise, and fish sauce in a large stockpot and cover with 4 quarts of water. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to low. Simmer on low for 6 to 10 hours. Strain the broth into a saucepan and set aside.
Place rice noodles in a large bowl filled with room temperature water and allow to soak for 1 hour. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and after the noodles have soaked, place them in the boiling water for 1 minute. Bring stock to a simmer.
Divide noodles among 4 serving bowls; top with sirloin, cilantro, and green onion. Pour hot broth over the top. Stir and let sit until the beef is partially cooked and no longer pink, 1 to 2 minutes. Serve with bean sprouts, Thai basil, lime wedges, hoisin sauce, and chile-garlic sauce on the side.

I think I have pretty nice teeth, but I do like to sometimes enhance my brightness for that fresh, bright look. Like I've been chewing on mint leaves and fluoride all day.
You know I love to treat my teeth nicely, so I didn't want to use cheap harmful tooth whitening kits from the dollar store. I waited until the last minute and didn't have enough for the quality kinds. Annnd because I was late planning for the trip, I didn't budget for an impromptu professional teeth whitening session.
"Because I only had one week to get ready and I wasn't able to find a professional designer in time...I really didn't want to spend $500-$1000 on a one time dress", said Nyraha.
never understood people's need to infringe upon others lives. As long as you aren’t stopping me from living my life and excelling, why would I be concerned to lord over your life? I mean do you have to agree with abortions? Absolutely not! But don't stop others from living their lives. Don't stop other people from doing something that they feel is best for their situation. I think that children are a blessing, which is why I personally wouldn't want to bring them into fucked up situations.
Lesson #2 "A single woman shouldn't travel too much or do too many big lifetime achievements by herself."
Because what else would a man have left to bring to the table if she can do it alone? If she has a house, a big paying job, or traveled too much when she finally encounters a man, what else could they do together?
She has to let a "man be a man." She has already experienced tons of life's significant milestones. Why would she need a man? How could she respect him if she could do for herself what he could do? So, even though I could afford to do so, I pushed aside purchasing my first home. I didn't travel to far and exciting places because I wanted to wait until I found a man. I didn't want to scare him off with my ambition. (How brainwashed was I?)
So I made sure I didn't do too much because I didn't want a man to be intimidated by my thirst for life. Although I suppressed my desires to do it big, I still was living single.
Some of us (including myself) are guilty of going on pity dates or dates that we don't want to go on. Or, the offer of free food has been presented to us, so now we have to go.
Then when you go on these dates, you are unimpressed, uninterested, and uninspired. You knew that you should have stayed home and watched Netflix with chilled wine. But noooooo, you had to go out and do something with your life, and now you are stuck listening to him talk about who is stronger; Super Saiyan 4 Goku or Super Saiyan 4 Gohan.
Look at the history of female-led action movies. (Well, the lack thereof). The movies tend to have weak storylines, actresses that do not truly embody the character, and oh yes, the male lover that makes them want to fight harder to win the battle. (Obviously, she can't just fight harder because it's the right thing to do.)
It wasn't until Wonder Woman, that we saw an amazing female-led action movie that made every woman cry out in unison "We are strong and we will fuck you up!"
Gal Gadot's Grecian beauty fit the role and embodied what we would think a live version Wonder Woman would be. And of course like most female movies she had a love interest who she mourns until this day.
After another failed musical project in the 70s, Bacharach and David ended their musical partnership, leaving Ms. Warwick feeling betrayed. The ending of their musical legacies resulted in several lawsuits, while Warwick, Bacharach, and David wouldn't speak again for several years.
Dionne had a hard time finding her footing as an official solo act, as she relied on Bacharach and David's writing for many years. It wasn't until she collaborated with Spinners that she received her first #1 hit with Warner Brothers records in 1974.
In Ms.Warwick's personal life, she married and divorced William Elliot twice. After the second divorce, Ms. Warwick balanced her career and raising her two sons, while struggling to find new hits that flowed with the new generation's tone.
You are this vivacious, beautiful, good azz woman who is great to be around and a blast to be with. Your family says you are a great person. Your friends think you are terrific. The guys you don't want are all in enamored with you. You are this great catch so no man should be able to resist your charm.
Unfortunately, you can be the sweetest peach in Georgia, and there is still someone who may not like peaches. (Thanks Shanna!)
There is something about you that makes him not want to be with you in an exclusive relationship. But just because he doesn't want to be committed to you, doesn't mean that he doesn't see the value in the friendship with you.
The young woman went live several times on Facebook showing herself having a good time on her birthday trip. In on of her videos she shows herself dancing with a man in a black beanie and a black/white T-shirt. It appeared that she didn't know the man she was dancing with but was alert and having a drink while they socialized.
In her first several videos she's very vibrant and energetic while the man in the beanie appears to also be enjoying himself as well.
Moments later, the young lady appears to be dazed and lethargic while the man in the beanie that she had been dancing with prior is grabbing on her and assaulting her on film revealing her breasts and vagina on the Facebook broadcast.
Treat single fathers like you would treat childless men. What I mean is that you always take into account one's character. We know that there are shitty men with kids. (duh!)
Also, I'm talking about the men who are active in their child's life. Not the "I'll raise you when I see you"dads, but the single fathers who are sharing custody and responsibility with the mother. Which brings me to another point; Peep that relationship with the mother! If he doesn't have a good handle on the situation with the mother of his child, he may not be someone you want to take too seriously.
Many co-parents have great relationships with each other. I know the big blowouts between the bitter parents are what we often witness. That's because those disputes are what makes the big bucks for the media and gets the most likes on social media.
