Vietnamese Fried Rice

6 May

Unfortunately my little has been home sick all week. She hasn’t been eating much, and I haven’t felt like cooking much. The weather was horrible today, on top of her continued fever, so I went out to make Cháo Ga, Vietnamese rice porridge with chicken. She got down half a bowl, which is more than she’s been able to stomach all week. I was optimistic that she would scarf down a bowl of fried rice for dinner and made every effort to sneak in as many vegetables as possible. It was a good news / bad news situation.

Anh went back for seconds even *after* I disclosed the cauliflower rice. Our little didn’t even take a bite. When she does, I know she’ll love it.

Family Supper Fish Rolls

25 Feb

Like a fish fry, a big grilled fish, tons of veggies and herbs with rice paper rolls is a great way to spend a family Sunday. So fresh, so satisfying, so HEALTHY. Have I mentioned that Vietnamese cooking is healthy? You can eat everything and not feel guilty about it.

Mom and Dad made a run down to the house to give us a poker table Pap Pap (my dad’s dad) made by hand years and years ago. It was pretty cool to hear stories of nickle, dime, quarter poker games being held at my Dad’s childhood home with local police and other folks. He said the cops always took off their guns and left them on the pool table. Safety first, you know.

Anyways. I wanted to make something that they would enjoy but would also fit with Mom’s diet as she’s counting down to fabulous for our wedding day.

Bánh tráng cuốn cá, Rice Paper Rolls with Fish, was a perfect choice. The only ‘cooking’ required is to toss the fish on the grill. My parents aren’t quite sure about fish sauce just yet, so I wanted to fragrance the fish in case they ate the rolls plain and stuffed the fish with a lemongrass stalk and a few slices of lime. This is totally optional.
