Not Normal

Still not back to normal around these parts… but hopefully soon.  This project has dragged on and on, and I have been overwhelmed with the work, I have had no time to do anything else.  I am truly exhausted.  My family has been so supportive. I don’t know what I would do without them!

Here is a painting I did while waiting for ginormous files to save, export and upload.  I am donating it to my son’s school auction.  It’s called Meditating Lion, and it’s pretty much the place I want to be in!

Will be back with recipes soon.

Here’s a good one that  I was introduced to by the person I’m working with.  It’s so simple I was able to  make while waiting for my computer to restart:  Take a whole, rinsed chicken. Chop it up into pieces so it can fit into a large pot.  Fill pot with water to cover chicken pieces by about an inch or two. Add some salt.   Boil for 90 minutes.

When it’s done, you have amazingly tender chicken that can be used for soup, burritos, tacos, salad, etc.  And you have AMAZING broth.  I strained it and chilled and skimmed off the fat (which people would be horrified by — the schmaltz  gives it the rich flavor).  It is very soothing, and I think helped to stave off an oncoming cold.

I made this soup and used the chicken broth and added the shredded cooked chicken at the end.  I didn’t have time to take a picture, but it was excellent, and the broth makes all the difference! It looked like this, but I put cooked rice in it instead of noodles.


By the way, my book, Soup Day, was released in Korea recently!  I love how they incorporated the soup spoon in the title in Hangul.


I only have to sell about 600 more copies before I can start on the sequel!  If you want to help me out, please do!  It is in stores and here.
Thanks for your patience and support ….  be back soon!
