Thai Shrimp and Mushroom Soup, Unauthentic Style

Made something healthy for the Missus this evening and realized i can cook without bacon or cheese! Who knew? So, anyway, this turned into a hearty meal, chock full of yummy goodness and incredibly healthy and yummy. I’ll even try to make up a recipe for you.

 

I started off by sauteeing about 1/2 cup each of diced red onion and red pepper until they were softened, med-low heat

Then i added 3 cloves of minced garlic and about 20 chopped up mushrooms, allowing them to sweat just a little

I followed that up with a whole carton of Thai natural vegan friendly stock from Wegmans. Here is a link to it and other fine prodcuts

Anyway, i also added a little pineapple chili sauce , a pinch of turmeric for color and a touch of sushi vinegar and brought it all to a roaring boil

Then i added a good handful of peeled shrimp and let it cook for another 5 minutes or so until the shrimp was cooked through. I served it on a bed of whole grain rice and fresh raw spinach with a few fresh sprigs of cilantro. The Missus ate it up in a matter of moments and pronounced it good. The Hungryboys swore they would never even try it, no m atter what i threatened them with. O well. Dig the pics and make some soup! If it doesn’t turn out just right, its just a different kind of soup, that’s all.  Also, see how shitty these pictures look??? I need a new camera!! Please send cash or money order or just a new damn Camera!!!

Late Night Snacking+ BOOBS!!!

ok, technically no boobs, just good old fashioned breasts. Chicken breasts that is, possibly the most consumed animal part in the known galaxy, possibly not. Anyway, I sliced some of them thin and gave them the flour, egg wash, bread crumb treatment, then fried the in 350 degree oil, I don;t know what that is in Celsius, ya’ damn metric system freaks!!! Anywho, I then proceeded to make awesome sandwiches with the aforementioned chicken, butter, bread(go figure), provolone cheese, avocado, spinach and Hot Thai Chili Mayonnaise!!! Everything got all hot and melty and intermingled and the end results were both satisfying and well deserved. Clean up will be delayed until the morning, just in time for  Hungrybreakfast!
