One of the best parts about moving is that we now live within 5 minutes of a thriving Asian community. This weekend we headed over to the Viet Hoa Grocery store to revel in a little culture while picking something for dinner. Danny and I spent a few weeks in China when we were first married and it was one of the highlights of my life. Doing stuff like this always enables me to reminisce about our trip. (Though our Christmas Card from that year pretty much says it all.)
The Wild Pig Meat, being on sale and all, also caught my eye.
I wonder how many Weight Watchers points this is?
At last, something we were familiar with! Though these rice and carrots were slightly more gigantic than the Caucasian versions.
While Danny and Viet Hoa employees weren't looking I put Macy on the rice for a photo op. Was that sanitary? Probably not. But will it make a good Christmas card photo? Hell yes it will. Am I afraid to ask the occasional rhetorical question? No I'm not.
Despite the intentions of getting something for dinner, we left Viet Hoa with nothing but imported beer and patronized a local restaurant instead. It was a great way to spend a Sunday evening and perhaps a weekly tradition we'll start.....at least until Homeland returns...because Homeland trumps everything.
THE END / Cuối cùng.
