food diary: 8 - 14 sept

I was (actually am still) quite weak after being sick for so many weeks. I remember my mum used to always make those yucky black chinese herbal soups with black skinny kampung chickens for me. She also made me lug back a few boxes of herbs (not all made it past the Australian customs though) the last time I came back from SG so that I can make soups for myself regularly. And so it was 十全大补汤 for me last week. Double-boiled for 4.5hours! It was not bitter like I expected. Quite nice actually. I totally devoured the half chicken (normal white chicken, not the black ones) used to cook the soup. It shall be dang gui (dunno which dang and which gui) chicken soup next. And I dunno what other herbal soups there are...

chio-est one, i think the "dang gui" soup hor, better wait till u're much better. Afraid that ur body may not be able to take sth so "pu".

For soup hor, u can boil some pork ribs, add in apples and pears, plus chinese almonds and dried figs, red dates.

Hope u re feeling better now.

*big hugs*

rae: orh yes madam. cos i is lazy to go hunt for the individual ingredients, so i just grab those already packaged herbal soups from an asian grocery store. this week, i'm having a simple chicken soup with some small red balls and some white strips of something (i dunno what they're called).
