Today was a long one, mainly because we overslept and started out two hours later than expected, really three but whose counting? Me. I'm counting!

We are on a "roll" this week and tried "Grain Rolls" which are truly not what you think or at least not what we thought. Hit play to find out what they are! Kat & Amber #WanderingSoup #WanderingSoupTrys #GrainRolls #Hanoi #Vietnam

We did our last deep dive grocery shopping on Friday and today, Saturday, was the first official day of no can do.
