This is my most favourite soup at the moment – it makes me feel so refreshed and comforted and happy. This is the recipe as served at my dinner party last night, thumb
but you can vary it a lot to suit your tastes too! Specially recommended for colds.

Ingredients (serves 2)

1 crushed clove garlic

1 heaped tsp grated ginger

1 sliced mild red chilli (or chilli oil)

2 sliced spring onions

Lime juice (and rind if liked) to taste

1 pint chicken stock

Tablespoon of fish sauce (nam pla)

1/4 can of coconut milk

2 packets udon noodles

Sliced baby corn and mange tout

Handful of beansprouts

Method:

Lightly fry the garlic, there
ginger, spring onions and chilli on a low heat in some oil and add the veg. Stir fry for a couple of minutes, then add the boiling stock and noodles and boil for three minutes, or more if you like your veg softer. Add fish sauce, lime and coconut milk to taste. If you are veggie, you could try veg stock and soy sauce. You could use any kind of noodles, and if I want a stir fry I leave the stock out altogether and add more coconut milk.

Enjoy!
Mira has taken to kissing in a big way – people, find toys, furniture. But I feel that something must be badly wrong if I catch her kissing a picture of Ronnie Corbett in the Radio Times.

We had a great weekend away before everything gets really busy again. I am on the point of finishing a few projects too, ailment
so I shall post about these soon!

but here is what I have!

We had a great week at camp – lovely kids and even the rain couldn’t dampen the fun. The team were totally amazing and I loved getting to know them all better.

Off to my sister tomorrow, syringe back to work on Thursday.

Off to camp for a week!

I am not going to be crafting or posting for a wee while as I am off to Lendrick Muir. My talk is on ‘pressure’ and I really want one of my illustrations to be the mints in the cola bottle, ailment but I suspect I won’t get away with it! However, pills I know a fair bit about pressure although no one has yet offered to feed me to a lion or throw me in a fiery furnace, thankfully…

See you when I get back!
