My mom makes me nuoc mam and brings it to me in a recycled jar on a bi-monthly basis.  It’s nice to have her homemade sauce on-hand.   Yesterday,  the jar toppled over and spilled in the fridge.    The sweetness, stickiness, and bits of minced garlic makes it challenging to clean when it’s splattered over 2 shelves.   One sponge and 10 paper towels later, I’m sad because my mom’s nuoc man is all gone.

Read Shaved Ice Sundays excellent recipe.
