from the inside out
My fave sickie recipe: egg drop soup!simmer:box of Imagine brand "no-chicken broth"1 tsp powdered ginger2 cloves garlicmix separately1 tablespoon cornstarch3 tablespoons waterpour them in1 teaspoon salt1/8 teaspoon pepper (I like white pepper)whisk 2 eggs with1 teaspoon vegetable oilpour the eggs in slowly while the broth is simmeringif you've got 'em, throw in some sliced up green onions and/or celery(evolved from the 1997 Joy of Cooking)Get better soon! ...Or keep pretending you're sick, as an excuse to have really good food and schnuggles with the sweetie. --Either way!
ooo, yes! this is fantastic soup. sven sometimes adds extra bonus ginger, but that's a bit strong for me.
Oops -- 2 teaspoons of vegie oil.Naturally, immediately after writing this out I found myself in the mood to have some myself...Which is where I noticed my mistake. :)
This poor little mug just looks like he needs to lie down. Hope you're feeling all well again by tomorrow. Can't wait to meet you!
ooh . . . sven, that sounds good . . . thanks so much for offering up the recipe! yesterday, I was too far down to do much . . . but I am putting this in the file. and so sorry I missed class, Sister D. I was just too tired. Good news is, I think yesterday may have been the worst of it.
I'm laughing at myself... I just can't seem to get this right.I realized that when I make the soup, I actually ignore the recipe and use 2 tablespoons of oil instead of 2 teaspoons.Just goes to show that the measurement doesn't really matter that much to begin with. :)
@sven: 2 tablespoons instead of 2 teaspoons? no wonder that soup is so good. ;) but seriously, i only see 1 teaspoon of oil in the recipe.
Hey gl. -- it has to be at least twice that because I doubled the number of eggs.The point of the oil (I believe) is to emulsify the eggs.
gl and sven: I tend to play it pretty loose with things like oil in recipes - I forget sometimes that they have chemical purposes outside of baking!
