Vietnamese Chicken Noodle Soup

So, I went to a library. It felt old school but cool in a way. I felt like one of those moms that makes time to take her kids to a public library. When in reality, it was my desperate cry for help. Not to be dramatic or anything but yes, I was desperate and…

It’s the other things like fat, sodium, etc. that I rather not be consuming in one meal. Creamy sauces are definitely rich and yummy and I…
