Florida in Winter

leave a comment »

Bogie is modeling the outfit that he feels you should wear in Florida.  (Of course he assumed you would be coming to Florida as a chihuahua.) Hopefully the cold (actually frigid) weather will go back up North where it belongs.

This is what the cold and snow SHOULD look like in Florida…a very cute quilt that was made by Dora.

We had this soup for dinner last night. It was very easy, and absolutely delicious. I made it exactly like the recipe except I used regular, not low sodium broth and I used fish sauce, because I had it.

Thai Pork and Noodle Soup

Thai Pork and Noodle Soup


    • kosher salt
    • 4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
    • 1 tablespoon fish sauce or soy sauce
    • 4 ounces wonton wrappers (about 10), sliced into 1/2-inch strips
  • sliced red chili peppers and cilantro leaves, for serving


    1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the scallion whites, garlic, and ginger and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the pork and cook, breaking it up with a spoon, until browned and cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes. Add the mushrooms and ½ teaspoon salt and cook, stirring frequently, until tender, 2 to 3 minutes more.

 2. Add the broth, fish sauce, and 2 cups water to the saucepan and bring to a boil. Add the wonton wrappers, reduce heat, and simmer until tender, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the lime juice. Serve with the scallion greens, chili peppers, cilantro, and lime wedges.
