We had a few cool beautiful summer days in NYC. Today is bit muggy. I’m still making salads lunches every day. I just make a big portion of 1 or 2 salads and eating them until they are gone. My trial of Vietnamese Pancake looks like a failure, but actually it tasted pretty good. Chop up scallions, mushrooms, a carrot, a green bell pepper, and sautée them in a vegetable oil. Add cleaned beans sprouts. Season with salt and pepper lightly. Make a crepe or not. Mix  1 tbs soy sauce, 1 tbs rice vinegar, 1 tbs water, 1 tsp sugar for dipping sauce. My mistake was that I actually tried to cook a thin gluten free pancake with vegetables in a pan together like Lan Cafe does. Forget about the pancake. Just enjoy the vegetables.
