Bun Rieu Cua and Cards Against Humanity – A Winning Combination

15 Oct

As the Government shutdown continues, so too does my housekeeping and entertaining repertoire. Hungry for some social contact and fun to chase away the rain, we had a few friends over to dig in to a big pot of Bun Rieu Cua and Cards Against Humanity.

I had leftover pork mixture from our Dam Hoi, so I decided to whip up a batch of Banh Pate So. They disappeared *like that*.  Love it when that happens!

Costco sells this really tasty calamari salad that is another great appetizer or đồ ăn nhậu (drinking food). Spoon over Romain leaves and you’ve got a lovely presentation that tricks guests in to thinking you toiled all day in the kitchen.

I really love this soup. It is so easy – really – and a real crowd pleaser. What’s even more exciting is that I don’t even need to taste as I cook!

After the main event, which was also the third and fourth courses later in the night, we opened Cards Against Humanity and laughed – and cringed – for hours. If you haven’t played, I highly recommend it – but do take the age restriction seriously. It gets pretty raw. Take for instance, these Haikus…

I think we’ll be making game night a more regular occurrence.
