Egg Drop Soup

I may have found my new favorite recipe for the fall/winter.  It’s been unseasonable cold here for November and last night soup was the perfect thing for dinner.  I have been wanting to try to make my own egg drop soup since it’s one of my favorites but usually made with chicken broth. I didn’t think it would be this easy and fast, or good though!DSC_0020

  • Bring 3 cups of vegetable stock with a couple pinches of salt to a boil on the stove
  • chop up carrots, shitake mushrooms and green onions and add to soup
  • combine 1 tablespoon of cornstarch with 2 tablespoons of water in a small bowl and add to soup.
  • half scramble 1 egg in a bowl and add it a little at a time to the boiling soup

Once you add the egg your soup is done and ready to eat, it’s that easy!  I added a little liquid aminos to mine for taste also.  Soy sauce also works.  Enjoy!

My Halloween Costume

I hope you had a spooky good Halloween! It was super cold here and even snowed a bit but Saturday night I dressed up and went to a party so I thought I’d share my costume, homemade as usual!

I went as Leela from the cartoon Futurama; see here for those not familiar…

She’s a Cyclopes who is the captain of a spaceship and an all around BA.
Here’s how I made her eye. I wanted to make sure I could still see so I used some of that plastic canvas people use to make needlepoint art with. I traced it, cut it out and colored the lashes and pupil in with a sharpie.

I bought the purple wig and the rest was put together with stuff I already had.

I went for something simple this year but was very pleased with how it turned out. What were you for Halloween?

Here’s one more withy sister. 😀
