vietnamese chewy ball

I really don't know what this is called but what it tasted like was mochi outside or "yoown" filled with pork and mung bean with green onion/fried onions on top. It also came with a sweet fish sauce. So savory and delicious. I'm going to try making this when I get a few days off in a row. We tasted this at the Saigon Mall in Garland, Texas. (pic taken with my new rebel t2i)

Thyca conference 2010 Irving, Texas (close to Dallas!)

Just a little note..had a weekend trip to Dallas for the Thyca Survivor's Conference. It was fantastic. I met a lot of other thyca survivors and had a great time learning about my disease. I feel more empowered now and glad that I went. Thank You Mom for taking the trip with me to learn more about thyca. It is a journey, and I know I'm not alone. My biggest fear was not knowing when or what.. I know now how important it is to keep stress on the down low. How do I do this? Me time.. for this weekend it was shopping through hobby lobby. I wish we had one of those near me. It was so much fun!
