Yesterday, I attempted to make my own pho broth. I looked here and here, and ended up using this as base before adding ingredients from the aforementioned recipes. I probably should have not used the prepared base, but the idea of making a broth (clear veggie broth) to make another broth. . .was too much. The whole operation was less than $20, and made about 16 cups.
For dinner, I heated up a little broth and prepared the goods - tofu (cooked in 1 tbsp of olive oil), bean sprouts, white onion, green onion, wide rice noodles.
Broth added, obligatory sriracha.
It looks pretty, but it doesn't hold a candle - not even a match box - to Mrs. Nguyen . However, I get high marks for interest, effort, and execution. :)

I only had a few, but they were pretty decent. Upon arriving at home, Remy thought it appropriate to dig into my bag, and see what was available for munching. Luckily, he's a good boy and released the sea snack (but only after licking all the salt off).
Lunch: leftover spaghetti (whole wheat noodles, Boca crumbles, Tomato Basil Sauce)
Breakfast: Super Greens, banana, frozen pineapple, flaxseed milk
The day started with this:
One of these days I will post an amazing recipe. Just need to make something amazing first. Ha!
