NOTE: We serve pho soup several days a week in the Summer—when our funds thin, when my adjunct classes dry up or disappear, when we’ve got June Gloom rains that keep my husband from his house painting dayjob. We tell the kids that hot food cools a body during hot weather. They always gobble up our cheap, thick soup.
