It's a {Vietnamese} Labor Day Lunch

Photos by {Me}

So, I know that I'm a little late in posting this, but I've been traveling for work all week and haven't had a chance to put the picture up yet.  On Labor Day we had my family over for lunch and decided to do a little Vietnamese vermicelli noodle bowl with lemongrass chicken.  My boyfriend made some imperial rolls (pork, ginger, garlic, and sesame oil ground into a paste and then rolled in rice papers and deep fried . . . YUM), and I made lemongrass chicken with shitake mushrooms.  Everything came together nicely and my family was impressed with our Asian inspired lunch.  As always, it's great when food brings you closer to those who matter the most.  :)
