Unwinding for Lunch

Ca Nuong Vietnamese Roasted Catfish
So today I was supposed to tackle my child's clothes and toys to go through and sort out everything she's outgrown so I could give them to another mom that needed them.  I was also supposed to bag up another mound of things we are going to donate to Salvation Army and then pack the things we need for the next few weeks until we meet our things in WA.  I don't know if I was feeling lazy or stir crazy but I felt like I HAD to get out of the house.  I've stayed home everyday for almost two weeks doing things to prepare for this move.  I just needed time to get out of the house for a few hours, and unwind.

So I met up with my very pregnant sister, my nephew and mom to have Vietnamese style roasted catfish.  YUM!  The fish was so tender and juicy and the skin was crispy.  We used rice paper wrappers, added the fish, some noodles, cucumber slices, lettuce and mint and rolled them up to dip into a sauce.  It's so rare that we go out to eat a dish like that and it hit the spot!  Izzy enjoyed seeing her buddy Nate too!  She kept puckering up to kiss him and he was running around dodging her kisses and hugs.  I guess girls already have cooties by age 2.
