My sister, the 'magnetic' one and me were having dinner a few weeks ago at a nearby Vietnamese restaurant. Over a bowl of steaming Pho, I told her that when I have ramen soup (which we all know is inexpensive and easy to make) that I liked adding some Vietnamese chili & garlic pasteand chopped baby bok choi to them to zip it up. I told her, "It makes 'em kinda special."
She cracked up. "Special? That's kinda sad," she said wiping her eyes.
There I was thinking I was easily pleased because comfort food is never sad.
