Cool Meal: Vietnamese



On these sultry days there is almost nothing better than Vietnamese food, which not even counting the extreme air-conditioning, was made for hot humid weather.

We went down to Nha Trang Palace in the Brooklyn's Chinatown the other day, for a fix of summer rolls, spring rolls, bun cha (those great platters of vermicelli noodles with some kind of meat or shrimp, basil and mint, and lettuce leaves) and one of my all-time favorites, pho. AND Vietnamese coffee. A perfect summer meal.

Larissa - thanks to your post, we went here on a Sunday afternoon for Linner. Oh yeah baby, after digging up mounds of concrete in my backyard, cool and spicy fit the bill. Sophia insisted (to the point of my utter annoyance) she would "hate" the food, but after wolfing down crispy squid, spring rolls, and caramellized beef cubes, she could not prove her point. It's a keeper!

That makes me so happy! My kids always say they're going to hate stuff too. I'm so glad you want and proved them wrong!

Homeowners in cold areas where snow and very cold is definitely the usual need to protect all basement pipes pipes with foam to maintain hot water hot preventing water lines from perspiration in the warmer weather conditions. Properly insulated water lines save cash on very hot water heating expenses and help reduce the potential risk of freezing plumbing in the winter months.

Make unsubscribing for your texts or e-e-mails a simple and painless procedure. Do not forget that because a customer is unsubscribing for your communications does not necessarily mean they not any longer want to be your client. If one makes unsubscribing a difficult or impossible process, your clients will lose respect for your personal business or brand name. [url=http://www.x21w12w21.info]Vi7765ity[/url]
