"Two #4's?"


It has been so nice to be able to go out to lunch with Joe this summer. It isn't something that happens often, but it is something that we really enjoy. Knowing that my summer is coming to an end ... really soon ... I asked Joe if he wanted to meet me today at our (my) favorite restaurant.

Pho Cali is a Vietnamese cuisine that is to die for! We walk in and the owner not only knows us by name ... but doesn't have to ask what we are ordering, (we always get the #4). Joe and I generally go every Saturday afternoon ... and then sometimes once another time of the week. Pho is my comfort food. They bring out a huge ... and I mean huge ... bowl of beef broth, rice noodles, and thinly cut steak. Then you add fresh basil, cilantro, bean sprouts, and jalapenos. You finish it off by adding several different kinds of sauces ... they don't smell too good on their own, but taste OH SO GOOD together! If you can handle a nice change ... you should try Pho Cali on 33rd South and Redwood. If anyone wants to try it ... I'll go ANYTIME! YUMMY.

I can't believe that summer is coming to an end. It is wonderful that you are able to do stuff with Joe.

I'm glad you have the stomach for it! It just looks so slimey that I feel like I'm going to eat worms. Hee hee. Maybe one day I will be brave enough to step out beyond Chinese food and try Thai or Vietnamese. I"m glad you get to have those lunch days with Joe. Have fun "back to school".

This picture has a lot more "foreign" stuff in it than I usually get. It just tastes like a spicy broth with noodles and meat. It is quite good ... not slimy at all!

Pick me! Pick me! I think I've been there with Andy for his bday last year (not this year, tho that was cool too). Soooooo yummy! I think that's what we ordered too. I will miss just running to eat out... I'm sure I'll be too tired or busy from now on.

OK, Take me there! I want to try it but I will need your expertise for the (complicated sounding) assembly stages. Yay, maybe we will be able to hang out soon!
