- Big kisses to my cyber-savvy sweetie on Valentine's Day.
- Your blog I check religiously, to see what you've got to say.
- So what if you occasionally backslide?
- Your clever writing, that's my special pride.
- So go ahead and treat yourself to a heart-shaped, sugar-filled parfait.
Aren't I a lucky daughter? :)
So cold weather = soups, right? I found the above recipe at the Mayoclinic.com which actually has a lot of healthy recipes (minus pictures, boo for that). I also had it with Kath's Kale chips. Flippin Good, and easy too. They kind of taste like baked lays (okay that might be a bit of a stretch) but a crispy salty snack all the same.
Potato Soup with Apples and Brie Cheese
- granny smith apples
- chicken broth
- bay leaf / salt / thyme
- evaporated milk
- small potatoes
- brie cheese
Too bad I was halving the recipe but forgot to halve the brie amount which sent this soup into the out of control rich category. I felt like I was eating dollar bills (ha! i kill me). But seriously folks, I don't know when I'll learn to use the correct ingredients, but I hope it is soon. Even despite my accidental ruin of the intended taste, it was still good. A keeper, for sure.
Thai Chicken and Coconut Noodle Soup (<-- linked to msn's delish.com)
- coriander / ginger / pepper / cayenne / salt
- chicken broth
- coconut milk
- fish sauce
- lime juice / zest
Okay so delish lets you set the intended serving amounts and will adjust the quantities of ingredients accordingly..... or so they say. In this case I think it must have kept the amount of broth because I had TONS! granted I generally cut back on the meat in recipes in favor of more veggies (which weren't really in the recipe at all) which could have been the case but either way I threw out half the broth, had a bowl, and patted myself on the back. In that order.
