Personal Notes:
On our trips to LA to visit Joey, Lori, Dalton and Garcy, daughter-in-law Lori always asks for a bowl of Pho. It is comforting and tasty and you can experiment with different types of noodles or pasta if you choose. You can also be creative with different vegetables (for example broccoli instead of snow peas or both). It's a unique meal and you can enjoy building your own soup bowl. You might even want to add some sautéed turkey Italian sausage along with the chicken and shrimp or as a substitute. To eat this in the true spirit of Asian cuisine use chop sticks, and flat bottomed porcelain spoons found at Crate&Barrel.
