Pantry Soup

Dewey and I have something fluish. So there hasn't been much cooking going on. Lots of graham crackers and peanut butter and whole wheat English muffins with EB and marmite on my end. Dewey's been subsisting on frozen pizza and ramen. We're both topping it off with lots of gingerale. I'm trying not to remember the last time we ate a vegetable.

Yesterday, I was finally able to stand up long enough to make real food. So long as it didn't require too much standing up. So I threw together a bunch of pantry staples for a quick Thai-style soup.

This was half a bag of frozen vegetables, some pearl onions that have been languishing in the freezer, lite coconut milk, vegetable broth, noodles, a bit of red curry powder, and about a cup of basil from the garden.

The soup looks great. I am so sorry to hear you are sick. Ugh. Tis the season for cold and flu. Hope you get better real soon.

You do what you have to do when you are under the weather and worry about vegetables later. Hope you are better very, very soon.

I hope you're feeling better soon. It's nice that you're able to make a quick, warm meal with stuff from your pantry and freezer.
