Chicken Noodle Soup

Posted by annie on Aug 18th, 2009 2 comments

I ran five miles at the gym today (instead of my usual two) in a desperate effort to put off work. Then when I got home, I decided to make chicken noodle soup from scratch (instead of the usual Campbell’s can).

Here are the results:

Well, a girl’s gotta eat, right?

I only had two meals today:

  1. pork noodle soup with potatoes and dried scallops (my mom’s recipe)
  2. frozen yogurt with mango and mochi
  3. chicken and rice soup

I had a pretty blasé food day (after the soup):

  1. three bowls of Chinese cabbage soup (I finally finished the huge tub of soup my mom gave me)
  2. one plate of salad with goma dressing
  3. half of a See’s milk chocolate bar with toffee
  4. one slice of hawaiian pizza
  5. two servings of sour cream and onion chips
  6. some strawberries
  7. two small cubes of cheese
  8. some grapes
  9. 1/8 of a piece of sausage
  10. two baby carrots
  11. one bit of chocolate cake

okay, I guess when I list it all out, it doesn’t seem blasé. but I don’t really like hawaiian pizza, chocolate, or cake.

Here is a picture of the soup that I’m crazy about. I’ve described it here and here.

Mostly Salad

Today’s meals:

1. 1/3 of an Asiago cheese bagel with cream cheese from Noah’s
2. 1/3 of a blueberry bagel with blueberry cream cheese from Noah’s
3. half a See’s milk chocolate bar with toffee
4. two big bowls of my mom’s Chinese cabbage soup (which is a lot like Russian cabbage soup except not nearly as sour, and way tastier!)
5. five plates of romaine salad with goma dressing, yes, FIVE. Goma dressing is THAT amazing, it makes eating plain salad not only tolerable but quite enjoyable. You can find goma dressing at your local japanese grocery store.
