So I realized earlier this week that when I posted about the guest post that I didn’t write, that I didn’t explain why I was posting about a guest post that I didn’t write. So allow me to rectify that now:
See, we have this friend named A, and she’s a pretty super-cool person who has a blog and writes about food and life and writing and kids and stuff like that, and every year for the past two years she has had Soup Week, which is basically where she makes a lot of soup. As near as I can tell, she doesn’t actually make all of the soup in the same week.
So anyways, this year she decided to have some guest bloggers write about soup as well, which is why I didn’t write a guest blog post for her. And in case you missed all of that from the first time around, you should go check out all eleven of her awesome soups here (and as an added bonus, you can see last year’s, too).
However, I do have a point to this post besides plugging for A’s blog. And that is hot and sour soup, which we made, and which looks like this:
This particular soup was more hot than sour, which suited me just fine, but I think threw K’s tastebuds into a bit of a cow-wrangling session.
(Look, don’t ask me where that metaphor came from, because I don’t know)
You can find the recipe here, and you should go make it! Because it was yummy! As an aside, we used chicken broth instead of vegetable broth, chicken instead of tofu, and two hot red small chilis and a bunch of chili powder instead of the chili sauce.
