Maybe in August.
I was so eager to try making the Bun Bo Hue from scratch this weekends. We went to the supermarket, then I pulled out the ingredients list that I printed out. Showed it to the hubby.
He looked at them and shouted out, "Wah! So long! How much are we going to pay to get these ingredient?"
I looked at the list with more than 25 ingredients, he was right. Maybe it is not a good idea at all to do it just for two people. A right procedure will take two days! A whole banana blossom already cost US$3. Only he will be saying "Yummy! Yummy!", even though half of the time he said that just to please me.
"How about we make it in August?" I asked.
"How about YOU make it in August." He replied with a smirky look.
Hehe... I know "We" will do it together, he cannot resist my persuasion. Maybe try to do it during fall is a better idea. I don't want to sweat like hell for making myself a bowl of Bun Bo Hue.
"Ok, maybe I'll just make it using the ready to cook paste from supermarket?" I suggested.
"Hehe... how about we just go to eat them in the restaurants? That might be the best option." He pulled me over and put his hand over my neck like a python choking its prey. That's a silent gesture from him that his wife is being silly again.
Well, true. But I still want to make Bun Bo Hue one day, for sure.
XOXO, Fish Fish
