Naps & Trying New Things

Over the past few years I've noticed that I have lost the ability to take naps.  I don't know what happened but it was gone.  Today though, I took a good long nap.  I got home from an early morning of gym and grocery shopping along with other errands, and I felt tired so I sank into the couch to watch the Patriots...and as they began to lose a bit, I closed my eyes and woke up when they won.  Perfect timing if you ask me, and my streak of no napping is over!  Wooohoooo!

So lately I have been having a serious love affair with Pho, a Vietnamese soup dish.  I love the complexity of the beefy broth, tinged with garlic, Ginger and Thai basil, the rare meat that cooks away in the broth, and all of the mix INS that come with the soup that let you customize your own spice level.  I have it as often as I can, but that always means dining out.  Today, I decided to try my hand at a very inauthentic version.  Right now it is bubbling away in the kitchen, flavors blending.  I can't wait to ladle up a bowl later.  I'll keep you posted on how my first attempt comes out!

I can't believe it's already Sunday evening- weekends really do fly by don't they?  

What new things have you tried lately?
