Food Friday- Pho great on a freezing day, or any day

On this frigid Friday my husband and I went out for a great bowl of Vietnamese soup- pho- at the Shawnessy Vietnamese Restaurant. As always it was great. It is a busy local spot and we keep going back. I suppose we could be trying other Vietnamese restaurants as there are plenty but we consistently love the pho.

Now when I eat or slurp my pho I think of The Beauty of Humanity Movement, a book by Camilla Gibb we read in my NB book club. It moves back and forth from present day to past Vietnam but the portrayal of pho shows how the soup mirrors the history of Vietnam. It has deepened my appreciation of pho.

What great food are you enjoying this Friday?
