I have so much to do today, so I decided to compress these 2 topics into one post.
Made an egg drop soup today with the last of the turkey breast meat, and it was received with great enthusiasm from the family. Here's the recipe adapted from cooking with kids.
4-1/2 cups homemade chicken broth
1/2 cup peas
1/2 cup carrots, diced
1/2 cup corn
1 1/2 cup cooked minced chicken breasts
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 green onion, minced
Take out 3 tablespoons of the chicken broth and mix with the cornstarch and soy sauce; add the salt to this mixture. Heat the remaining broth, bringing to a simmer. Add peas, carrots, corn and turkey meat. Pour the cornstarch mixture into the hot broth and stir until thick and clear.
Break eggs into a small pitcher, stir lightly, and slowly pour into the hot soup. Turn off the heat and stir once. Divide the chopped green onion (omitted) into four soup bowls and ladle in the soup.Last Saturday afternoon, at around 4.30pm, I was on my way back from the capital, and spotted an awesome sight at the horizon. So I got dear Hubs to slow down the car to 40 miles/hr in order to I can capture this moon rising. I took several shots, but fell in love with this particular shot with the country house on the right for a comparison on the size of that moon. Frankly, I don't mean to 'moon' you, but this is simply too beautiful not to share!
