One of Carol's summer projects is to expand The Beutel and Buxton families' culinary horizons. A couple weeks ago, she talked Ryan into going to a Vietnamese restaurant with her.That was a big hit so today she organized another Vietnamese lunch, this time at Aurora's Pho-Yo! restaurant.
Our lunch party included Nate, Ryan, James,
Andrew, Carol and I.
Everyone partook in the lunch special bowl of Pho noodles. James and I had ours with meatballs.
We also shared a pair of Korean Barbeque tacos. These were ok, but not as good as I'd expected.
My kids aren't adventurous eaters, so they were a little tentative when the food arrived.
However, it wasn't long...
until they were slurping up their noodles like champions!
