What I Ate

  • It was a happy accident that I forgot my lunch one day last week. Deviating from my usual vermicelli bowl at T & D Noodle House, the Bun Bo Hue really helped move my cold along.

  • Mack and Emily took me to a special Mother’s Day dinner held at The Foundry Room in the Oliver Exchange Building, organized and catered by Culina. It’s a beautiful space, with lots of room for kids to wander and explore. We enjoyed the food as well, a family-style meal of Ukrainian classics.
