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!

Banh Pate So meat puff pastries and calamari salad appetizers

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.

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

Bun Rieu Cua – Vietnamese Tomato Crab Noodle Soup

2 Jun

My last recipe post featured one of my favorite meals, Canh Kho Qua (Stuffed Bittermelon Soup), so this weekend for my future hub’s birthday BBQ I made a gigantor pot of Bun Rieu Cua (boon ree-ewe coo-uh), Crab and Tomato Noodle Soup. This is one dish that I got right my first try, and is his favorite Vietnamese soup that I’ve tackled.
