Phyllo dough filled rolls with spicy meat
and banana dessert served at the Vietnamese New Year Celebration.
Today I celebrated the year of the cat with my friends Carol, Nga, John, Sheila, Chris and many kind members of the Vietnamese community in Phoenix. We were well fed: little egg rolls, some tasty noodles with beef and vegetables, a pickled veggie salad, phyllo dough stuffed with spicy meat and coconut and banana deserts. I soon slipped into a Vietnamese food coma and felt the need to nap.
But...a nap was not in the kitchen wench's future today, because...thanks to Huck and Michelle I was invited to a fun superbowl party at their home. We had amazing eats: bratwurst on rolls from Karsh's bakery, football and "cheesehead" sugar cookies, cornbread (thank you Charles), veggies (thank you Tamika) and other yummy side dishes that I will be working off tomorrow on an overdue run.
Happy Year of the Cat!
