It’s been five days, I feel wonderful, I do eat other things of course but not as much as the soup makes me full. Today though, I may have a problem because I made such a nice soup yesterday, I hope I can think of something better today. Today is going to be busy as I have to decorate cupcakes as well as to ensure a catering order is done without glitches before 2 pm.
Yesterdays soup made me very full although I did pick on wholemeal bread while making sandwiches last night, I shared them with my dogs, so I probably ended up eating two whole slices by myself. I did not sleep well though, I was sneezing right up till 2 am because I drank three large glasses of Air Serai. I asked Eda for a glass of water and she gave that to me instead and of course I did not say NO. So I gulped down three glasses without any thought, so hence the sneezing bout. Am fine now though a little nasally sensitive at the moment.
So today’s soup may be relatively simple or something leafy. I like my soups light although yesterday was an exception, so day may be a light leafy soup with garlic and onions. Will have to send the girls to the market to see what is available. I have this sudden thought of Chinese Cabbage. It could be a possibility. Will update with a recipe later today.
While the soup is called so simply because of its appearance, I think this is just what I needed, it was simple, cooling, a tiny bit hot, and most importantly light. The Soy Sauce just gives it that enough flavor taste. I have not used Soy Sauce in any of my other recipes so this was a change. It was too hot to bother cooking too and I was super busy.
