I caught a little bit of a cold this week. Nothing terrible just a sore throat and stuffy head. Of course, soup sounded pretty good, so I stopped at our regular Vietnamese Pho restaurant for some pho tai and Vietnamese egg rolls. I think the restaurant has changed owners, I didn't recognize anyone working there, and the customer service was sorely lacking. Then, as the man behind the counter was bagging up my order, he put a tray of fresh rolls on top. When I asked them why he was putting those with my order, he told me they were what I ordered, Vietnamese fresh rolls. Um, no, I told him, I ordered egg rolls. Well, he said, egg rolls cost two dollars more, so did I still want egg rolls? Pfft. I was tired, and sick, and hungry and didn't have any cash on me and didn't want to charge two dollars for egg rolls, WHICH I ORDERED. So I went home, still happy with the thought that at least had my soup.
Pulling everything out the bags, once I got home I realized that there was no puffy plastic bag with bean sprouts and basil and limes. Boo! And they were stingy with the hoisin and chili sauce. I'm very particular about my pho, and this place has always done it right before, but after today I'm afraid I'm going to have to find another place. Anyone in San Diego know of a good place for pho in East County? Sigh. Life is hard sometimes.
It's been a while since I've pulled out my bookbinding supplies, and I've been enjoying tearing up big sheets of paper to fit some old book covers.
I've also found a new favorite sock pattern, and will definitely have a finished pair of socks to show off by Saturday morning. I can't believe how fast these guys are knitting up. If you're looking for a quick sock knit, I highly recommend knitting yourself a pair of Spring Forward socks!
