While I am waiting to hear about the whole passport issue, I decided to crack open one of my new Vietnamese cookbooks and try my first authentic Vietnamese meal. This involved a trip to my local grocery store to get some Vietnamese staples, such as oyster sauce and fish sauce and rice noodles. You gotta love Wegmans.
I ended up making "Wok-Seared Noodles with Chicken and Mushrooms" and a soy-lime dipping sauce.
Marc said it was the best asian dish I've ever made - I had to stop him from drinking the rest of the dipping sauce! So I guess we can say my first venture into VN cuisine was a success. Not bad for a girl who had to go get a rice cooker because I couldn't even make rice on my own!
*and just to let you know that our agency hasn't left us hanging, I did hear back from my case worker, but he still doesn't know if I'll have to update my passport. He should have a definite answer within a few days...
