Short and Soup.

It's just been one of those days where I really, really appreciate having a great Chinese takeaway 10 minutes up the road that does home delivery and is generous with the complimentary prawn crackers.



I've got a tummy full of wonton and vegetable soup and I am feeling all the better for it.  I think it's Chinese Penicillin the way that chicken soup is Jewish Penicillin.

Thank goodness tomorrow is Thursday.  I'm taking to bed early in celebration with my Kindle.  I'm determined to finish The Lincoln Lawyer soon so that I can review it on the blog.  I keep getting distracted by my Tori Spelling autobiographies though......

Pleasant night, all.  May we all bounce out of bed Thursday morning full of energy!

  1. I had a great Chinese takeaway when I lived in Newtown - wish we had a local where we live now. I want to get a Kindle too - do you love it?

  2. Recharge after the early night SSG! We ordered a kindle in the last couple of days and can't wait to get it! Dhal in our household tonight, but similar affect to the soup!

  3. I swear by Pho when I'm sick, have a hangover, feel blue. It's got magical healing powers - I swear!

  4. Ooh, yum! Love wonton soup! Even I love it, and am of Chinese heritage, I must admit I'm for the 'Jewish penicillin'. Made myself a huge pot of chicken soup ('canja de galinha' in Brazil) last night...I could live on that stuff!

  5. Be well, SSG. I LOVE short soup and would happily eat it most nights. I don't, of course, but I would be happy. x

  6. I think my pencillin soup is the soup that comes with Hainanese chicken rice!

  9. Love Chinese soups. So nutritious, filling and warming. And such a sucker for dumplings too. And prawn crackers. Hmmm.

    I have the Lincoln Lawyer on my Kindle too but I keep reading chick lit instead. My new favourite authors are Sarra Manning and Kate Johnson. The Untied Kingdom was fab.

  11. You just can't beat a delicious soup for comfort food. My sister has just returned from 7 weeks travelling around Europe eating all sorts of amazing things. So what has she requested Mum make for our regular Thursday night family dinner - vege soup!
