Bun Bo Hue - May 17th

After a heavy lunch of chicken a la king with biscuits, we headed over to my aunt's house for dinner. She made bun bo hue. This is everything other than the pot of soup. Noodles, bean sprouts, the plate of meat, green onions, and sliced red onions.
Soft tendons, mystery meat and tender beef are waiting for a warm home.

A close up on the soft tendons. I normally don't eat tendons, but these were so soft that I couldn't resist.
There are no pictures of anyone's bowl of bun bo hue. Actually, there weren't any pictures of the soup that night. Lucy and I were too hungry to take the time and snap a photo that night. With our family, sometimes you might not get to eat if you're slow.

For dessert Richard had made white cake (or at least attempted to make it) earlier in the day.

Without a recipe and with a bit of help from mom, he made some sort of cake. He wanted to make something that resembled Betty Crocker's boxed cakes, but it wasn't meant to be.

Before dressing the cake, Richard cut the cake in half and trimmed the crust off. My grandma's strawberry jam was used as a filling in between the two halves. Then cream cheese icing was used to cover the whole thing.

The cake was supposed to have a big red heart, but it didn't turn out... As I watched Richard try and create a heart from some red food colouring, the heart turned out to looklike a cockroach, then a uterus, and then into a butterfly. Nice recovery! lol

Tada! These were enjoyed with some Chinese tea.
