Two years ago I thought it would be really fun to make a new soup every week. I even squatted on the blog name ’52 Soups’. Well, I never got around to doing anything about it. But, over the weekend I got an itch and made not one, but three different soups. Right now, I’ll post on the first one.
I got absolutely no sewing done this weekend between visiting friends, trips to IKEA and savoring the last few minutes of the holiday. One place I did go was to our local H-Mart. It’s a (mostly Korean) Asian grocery store just outside of the City. I went because I’m on a ‘eat miso soup for breakfast kick’. Why? Because I don’t eat enough leafy greens and I love soup. Between that, the tofu and other veggies — it’s hard to think of a better way to start my morning. I will eat anything for breakfast as long as it’s warm.
While shopping at H-Mart is like shopping on the streets of Calcutta, it’s well worth the effort. The soup base comes in a packet like Ramen (this one is lower sodium). I just added water, tofu and a cup of chopped bok choy. I swear I wasn’t hungry until late afternoon.
While at H-Mart, I found this adorable sewing kit that’s coming to work with me on Monday. While I do plan to tell people to hem their own damn pants, I occasionally have a clothing malfunction that could benefit from an on-site kit.
There are 10 rolls of thread, two needles, a needle threader and a few white buttons. The kit was $4.95. It definitely needs a mini scissors (which I actually have from Christina courtesy of Daiso).
Oh, and to all my West Coast PR friends, I can stop hating on you for your iPhones. I got an iTouch this weekend! So, Christina, Nancy, Cindy, Leslie and Leslie — I will stop asking if there is an app for that ;) I should note the Blackberry above is for work. And it should not be confused with my personal mobile. Yeah… a few too many electronic doo-dads, huh?
