chicken sausage bánh mì buns


 on monday i went to the m2m and purchased a ton of those
plain frozen ready-to-be-steamed buns and for every meal
since then, i've put various things inside of them.
these buns are one of the things that reminds me of my grandparents,
because my grandma always nailed it when it came to stocking
up on steamed buns whenever a little me would visit her in california. 
 these buns take care of my everlasting craving for bánh mì
and sausage buns and steamed buns. and part of me thinks that
the comfort that they provide will reverse the abundance of grey
hairs that have lately been popping up on my head {frowny face}.

they're pretty basic to make... just put these things in a bun:
sausage {or i also had fried tofu-- very tasty!}
cucumber
cilantro
daikon + carrots tossed with vinegar + sugar + soy sauce
mayo
soy sauce
sesame oil
sriracha
...and hot chinese mustard

omg so good.
scanwich that shit.
scanbun.
ima turn into a bun soon.
other things i plan to put in these buns:
speculoos
ice cream
bacon
eggs
bunny rabbits
pb + j
taco things
lentil burgers

-yeh!
