14 Degrees and Soup!

It is soooo cold out right now. 14 degrees to be exact. We got a bit of snow but nothing much. Im soooo glad its Thursday and that tomorrow is payday! YAY! Mr. Gaunt and I have plans to get our tree tomorrow night and go see A Christmas Carol 3D, Im pretty excited, never seen a movie in 3D before. Saturday were gonna go to the museum with a friend and then Sunday hopefully I can do a bit of Christmas shopping. We are by no means going crazy this year with gifts, so I really dont have much to do.

Today I came home a little early and had great plans to make a Thai Coconut Shrimp soup recipe that I had copied out of a book weeks ago. Of course when I got home I couldnt find the recipe anywhere…grr! So I looked up a few online and finally ended up just dumping a bunch of stuff into a pot and praying it was yummy.

Mr. Gaunt liked it a lot, and I thought it wasnt too bad. I wish I had had more vegetables to put in but I didnt.  The basic jist of it is:

1 can of light coconut milk

1 can of broth

2 cups shrimp

1 Green Pepper

1 Red Pepper

1/2 an onion

Cooked Brown Rice

Peanut Sauce

Chilli Flakes

Garlic salt

fish sauce.

Dump all into a pot and simmer. Yup thats pretty much it. I would not follow that recipe to a T by any means, google a good one and go off that, but it goes to show that you can make soup from pretty much anything. And its not too bad for you either!

  1. Wow that soup looks really yummy. I have a can of broth and a can of coconut milk that have been sitting in my cabinet for a few weeks.

    I am soooo going to make this tonight. Thanks for the recipe.
