Thoughts in response to Friend's posts awhile back

Here is a recipe for a very good vegetarian soup;

Pad Thai Soup
Saute: 4 Tbsp. sesame oil 1 bulb minced garlic
2 bunches chopped green onions
1 block cubed tofu
Add: 6 Tbsp. chunky peanut butter
When peanut butter is melted add: 1 1/2 cups soy sauce
3/4 cup maple syrup 1/3 cup cider vinegar
2 tsp. cayenne pepper 2 Tbsp. lime juice
4 stalks celery finely chopped Water(enough to make a somewhat thin broth)
Shortly before serving (so as to be just tender) add:
8 oz. rice threads 1 lb. bean sprouts
10 oz Spanish peanuts


Some of our favorite snacks;
yogurt, nuts and fresh fruit
we also enjoy things that are not so healthy from time to time like;
cookies, cheesy crackers, and cake or ice cream
Popcorn is my all time favorite though. we sometime try different things on it other than butter and salt. Like; powdered cheese (from a mac and cheese box), brewers yeast, kettle corn (white sugar), and once ranch mix. all were good. I always pop it on the stove with just a little oil.

Ranch dressing mix is the very best popcorn topper in my opinion. I crave it all the time.

The Pad Thai Soup really sounds disgusting, but it is absolutely delightful. And I am definitely a carnivore. I love meat. --Derek

Martha, I just thought I'd let you know that I started my own Blog on here. I am going to try to post more often.I have been catching up reading yours today :)...I sure miss you. I hope that you are doing well.

Hey, I'll have to try that! Do you taste the PB much? (You know Mathew doesn't like PB). Last night he was craving Indian, so we made chicken curry. :)

Well, I don't think so, it all sort of blends to make an altogether new flavor. maybe you should make just 1/2 a batch at first though.
