Falling for Soup

I know, I know. It's a cheezy blog title. But I couldn't think of much else to call this. It's Fall, the wind is blowing like crazy outside and it's freakin' cold. We had some spectacular foliage during the past couple of weeks. That ended quickly, as it does every year, when the wind comes and rip all the leaves down from the trees. Still plenty are hanging on, but I'm staying inside during this chilly windy day.

I've made 2 pretty good soups lately. Last week I made Wonton Soup. I've never made that before. I have made wontons, and I usually have the wonton wrappers on hand to make hor-dourves (or however the heck ya spell it) and stuff that's snacky like that. I chopped up some onion, carrot, cauliflower and portabella mushrooms, sauteeing it with some ginger and garlic. I seasoned it up with some Rice vinegar, Braggs Liquid Aminos, black pepper and sesame oil. This filling got carefully put inside the wonton wrappers, sealing with water. I think I'll use a bit of flour and water paste to seal them next time, as they easily opened up in the broth after cooking.


The broth was made using a bouillon paste, water, chopped garlic and minced ginger, more braggs, black pepper and some torn Nori sheets. I do like the convenience of this bouillon paste I've tried, but I think it's too salty for the suggested proportions.

Next time I'll add less bouilion or more water. I added some leftover pan-fried tofu, half a can of chopped baby corn, and carrots.


The soup was pretty tasty. I'm not really one to put an exact recipe, cuz I just sorta wing it. If you can't figure out how to make this, well I guess you can google it. Or just go back on the internet and complain about it.

Last night I made some kick-ass Lentil soup. Again, kinda salty, and I forgot about the saltiness as I added some celtic sea salt. Today I'll add more water and try to remedy it.

The lentil soup was made from sauteing one chopped onion, 1 cup each sliced carrots and parsnips, and some garlic. I always season the veggies as I cook with salt and pepper. Then I added 1/2 cup lentils and about 5-6 cups of water, with the appropriate (too fucking salty) amount of bouillon base. I let it cook for about an hour and it was fabulous.


I got tagged!

7 things ya may not know about me:

I throw my "composting" stuff out into the woods in the back yard. Nothing brings me greater joy than to see rotton tomatoes bouncing off trees and pineapple tops getting caught in the limbs. The cats often run after the missiles.

When I was in 9th grade, I farted in Math class. I had bent over to pick up my pencil, and "whoorrenn" came out of my butt! It was those school desks like this:
It sucked.


I HATE dirty mirrors

My husband and I got married in a drive-thru wedding chapel in Las Vegas. It was awesome.

Sometimes when I'm at home by myself I won't shower for up to 3 days. I just run for cover when the UPS guy comes.

When I was young and we went camping, (I have NO idea where this place was) we discovered a bike trail that went down into the woods. The trick was, you had to turn quickly or bail out to avoid going over the cliff and dying. I guess we were good on bikes.

I hate raw onions. I've been cooking with them a lot more lately, but if I get something that happens to have onion in it, it's pretty much a ruined meal for me.

Now I'm gonna tag Kate, Marlena, and Julia & Erin.

Giờ khắc này, bốn vị cao thủ võ tông gần như hối hận muốn chết rồi. Nếu sớm biết bọn họ không phải cùng một phe, chúng ta... chúng ta hoàn toàn có thể liên hợp đối phó một vị, đối phó vói người còn lại... Vừa rồi bảo đao đã tới tay, không ngờ mình lại cứ như vậy chắp tay ném ra ngoài...

Bảo đao tiếp tục bay trên không trung, may mắn thế nào, lại rơi trúng đầu Kỷ Mặc....

Mà vị nguyên chủ nhân Hoàng Tuyền đao vốn đang bị thương, lại rú lên vui mừng,nhảy dựng lên, vô kinh vô hiểm doạt được Hoàng Tuyền đao tới tay, cười hả hả: "Hai tên đại ngu ngốc này, đa tạ rồi ha ha ha ....."

Vặn người một cái giữa không trung, linh hoạt như chim yến, sưu một tiếng đã biến mất vào bóng đêm. Mọi người cùng nhổ nước miếng ầm ầm: "Xứng đáng! Mắng một chữ cũng không sai! Các ngươi chính là hai thằng ngu. Hừ, nói các ngươi ngu cũng là vũ nhục những kẻ ngu...."

Rõ ràng là đoạt đao, ngươi nói hai kiếm khách các ngươi chạy tới làm gì?

Hiện giờ thì xong rồi, ai cũng không đoạt được. Các ngươi trước tiên đánh bay đao đi, xong rồi lại quay sang đấu đá lẫn nhau...

Nhưng ai cũng không dám trêu chọc hai người này, sau đó hai người này còn bám theo phía sau mọi người, đuổi theo.

Đến lúc này, tất cả mọi người đều khóc không ra nước mắt.

Kỷ Mặc vừa chạy, khó chịu muốn khóc, vừa đố kỵ trong lòng muốn chết. Lửa ghen tỵ bốc lên thiêu đốt trong lòng, lệ hâm mộ rơi đầy mặt!

Kiếm khách! Ta fuk, Cố Độc Hành là kiếm khách rồi!
