Karl’s Thai Chicken Soup

Jan asked for chicken soup with rice—props to Maurice Sendak—for a weekday dinner, but that seemed too common to me. I decided to make Thai Chicken soup with rice stick. I can make it a bit less spicy than it is made authentically.

Karl’s Coconut Rice

I am making a dinner with a lot of restrictions this week—no onions, garlic, bell peppers, “hot” spices—because daughter Miriam has been ill. I finally settled on making chicken satay lettuce wraps and I wanted a side starch dish for the carb-eaters. I had decided to use some coconut milk in the main dish, but this left me with most of a can of coconut milk left over. What to do with it?

Karl’s Hawaiian Sweet Potato Soup

I had decided to make an African peanut and sweet potato soup to go with my Asian coleslaw and ham steak. When I told her how I had planned to spice the ham to meld these divergent dishes, her response was a very definite, “No!” She suggested that I make the soup, Hawaiian and make Hawaiian pork to go with it. A quick adjustment of the spicing and the addition of coconut milk met with her satisfaction.

Karl’s Carrot, Coconut and Ginger Soup

Jan and Eilene went on a walking tour of the coast of Devon while they were in England. They stayed at Home Farm, a B&B run by the Stubbs. During the day Michael led them on guided tours of the historic area and at night would come back to food prepared by a master cook. Alison Stubbs is working on writing a cookbook, creating healthy, locally sourced, takes on traditional Devon fare.
