I rike!

Even through my nausea, I start thinking about soups as soon as the weather turns cooler. The only one I had a taste for was a favorite from the Supper Club, Chinese Chicken Noodle Soup*.  As soon as I thought of it, I started salivating.... must have! must have! I bought the ingredients on the way home from getting prescriptions filled. Sis & Supergirl 3 stopped by to help. It is just as delicious as I remembered.

Since I've been riding the nausea waves, I've only wanted vinegary, pickled foods, like the Mediterranean Tuna Salad (that I still eat almost every day), and I've lost my taste for most dairy/creamy foods. The real shocker? I've gone more than a week without any peppermint ice cream.

I think most Chinese soups have amazing curative powers. For years, I've asked Sis to shlep to a nearby Chinese restaurant (a cheap, greasy one) to get me a quart of Hot & Sour Soup when I'm in the grip of a vicious cold or flu. YUM. Whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger, right?

(*I substitute plain old spaghetti for the soba noodles, which I can never find in the "regular" grocery. I break it into 2-3" pieces and cook it separately, adding them last.)

Oh my...no peppermint ice cream...that is not a good sign! I hope this passes soon!

It took me reading it three times to get what "I rike" meant. I'm not sure why I'm so slow sometimes! I really hope you're feeling better.
