pho dinner party

so today we had a pho dinner party with about 6 people over. we made our own beef stock in my large beer brewing stock pot. ronda picked up 10 lbs of beef bones for the grand experiment.

we started the cooking friday night and it wasn't looking good. we found a few recipies online, combined them, and doubled them (since we were making enough for 10 people.) unfortunatly at the end of the night the stock still tasted really watery. so sat morning we went out and bought lots more stuff and doubled the spice contents again. eventually we got something that tasted pretty good.

everyone seemed to enjoy the food and had a pretty good time.
