I have one of those magnetic strips mounted to my backsplash for knives, and I just keep recipes there while I'm cooking with magnets -- or sometimes a knife!

Callbob, can I check out your recipe too? Ours is mostly "eh, does that look like enough?" 475mimi at gmail dot com!

Apartment Therapy The Kitchn | Recipe Review: Vietnamese Rice Noodle Pho
8/18/08 11:47 AM

Tragically, I live somewhere where the best pho we can get (outside of my house) is with the Vietnamese Student Association's once-a-month pho nights. I wish I could just spend the seven bucks! But pho is really worth making -- it's cheap, and while time-consuming, you can make enough to last for daaays at a time, even if you have it for almost every meal (which I'm capable of doing). Or, you can have all your friends over and they will sign over their souls to you for a bowl.

CallBob, your pho sounds a lot like ours, but you let it simmer for much longer. We usually hit about four hours and then we can't take it anymore, we have to have some!

My girlfriend and I make pho (we're both Vietnamese) with beef soup bones, simmering for hours with onion and ginger (both grilled right on the stove top) and the spice pack, and I can't even imagine that a 20-minute, chicken stock-based broth would taste nearly as good.

I love cilantro, I think it's the most delicious, magical herb. I love it in Mexican, Indian, and especially Vietnamese dishes -- I would eat it by the handfuls if I could!

I'd be worried about pantry moths, who apparently can eat through, or wiggle into, just about everything. And bulk bins are totally breeding grounds for those moths! I suppose you could just chuck all your bulk goods in the freezer for a few days to kill any possible larvae.

Sorry to gross everyone out!

"Uh, totally, because on Mars there's more room for stuff than on Venus."

My favorite comment thus far. Gender is involved in terms of how such behavior is described, not distributed.

What I want to know is where I can get a bed-skirt that isn't ugly and ruffly! I have a giant bed, with a newfangledly tall box-spring and mattress that I was gifted by an ex's mother (before we broke up), and it's too comfortable to get rid off (and I have no money to buy a new bed, so...). But none of my comforters cover the damn thing, so I'm left with all this unsightly, under-dressed space. I just have no idea what to do about it...
