Emi's sisters have been over visiting for a couple of days and it makes my heart full to see them hanging out together being sisters. They've shared some great time together.
Tonight they accompanied me to the store in search of dinner and anything else they could try to sneak into the cart. Emi wanted Egg Drop Soup so we got that (not a fan) and some ingredients to make our own version of the Banh Mi.
I thought it turned out really yummy although I think I need to stock up on stuff from the Asian market for next time...like pork loaf. My inspiration was that yummy sandwich I had at Lee's a couple of weeks ago and another recipe for Vietnamese Fried Egg Banh Mi I have wanted to try for the longest time. Whoa!
I used French Bread, Braunschweiger (yum!), Smoked Turkey (not pictured in this second helping) vice pork loaf, Miso Mayo, shredded carrots, cilantro and a bit of Roasted Asian Sesame dressing. I did not fry any eggs this time even though I could have easily done so out on flagstone patio yesterday. I thought the banh mis were fantabulous and I'm guessing my husband and Emi did too as they got seconds as well. Even the Little Ones liked the "brown stuff" (Braunschweiger).
My belly and heart were full tonight... I hope yours were too!
