This Father's Day I'm not able to be there by his side, but I am thinking of him, appricated, and love him more and more each and everyday!! ~~Happy Father's Day Daddy~~
I also like to wish all awesome father out there a very Happy Father's Day weekend!! Take dad out for a nice dinner, or cook him a very nice dinner at home, and/or surprise dad with a nice traditional vietnamese dessert. Either way, I am sure you'll make dad the happiest dad on Father's day ever.
8oz of shrimp and skinless pork belly

Heat 1½ tbsp oil in a pan over medium high heated, add 1tbsp mince garlic, sauté foe a few minute or until the garlic turn brown. Add marinated pork belly and shrimp, cook for 3 to five minute. Because i have some left over scallion so I sauté with garlic , but you can leave that out.
Pour in the water mix that made earlier. Add rice noodle; Stir occasionally to prevent from burning and cook for about 7 minutes. Add bean sprout just a minute right before removing from the heat.
Tips: Make sure to use chopstick or tongs to stir noodle only to prevent noodle from breaking
