Oh My Pho Ga – Chicken Pho Noodle Soup Recipe

21 Jan

If you’re like us, snow days are pho days. Except today, I had zero interest in going out in to sub-arctic temperatures and a swirling snow storm. So after waking up to find out OPM graciously closed the government I ran out to the grocery store to pick up a few things.

The last time didn’t go so well, and I heard somewhere (or just made it up) that Pho Ga, Chicken Pho, is easier. A language lesson for you today – my husband corrected me this morning on my pronunciation of ga.

Me: Anh, I’m going to make Pho Ga (fuh gah) today for lunch!

Him: Great! But it’s not Ga like Lady Gaga. You have to drag and drop the “g”. 

Me: Oh, ok. But I like the sound of Pho Gaga

I have no idea how to type that “g” pronunciation except to explain it as if you’re taking a big theatrical “gulp” in the back of your thought. Know what I mean? Do that on the front, but not like you’re on stage.

Ok, now that we’ve cleared that up. Here’s the recipe, which thankfully turned out really really nom. After lunch, Anh said, “Maybe you should just make Pho Ga and then add beef at the end, would you even notice the difference?” Resounding endorsement!
