Spicy Thai Chicken Noodle Soup

2:06 am by

My BFF, Megs, and I try to make a lunch date at least once a month – we call it “lunch therapy.” Our favorite couch? P.F. Changs, where we share a bowl of spicy chicken noodle soup with brown rice, sauteed mushrooms and a nice (i.e. least expensive) bottle of white wine. Changs is awesome – the bowl of soup is usually more than enough for both of us, and we take turns bringing home the leftovers.

One thing I love about Chang Soup is that it clears my sinuses and peps me right up. So when Mr Lici had a nasty cold, I knew that chicken soup just wouldn’t be enough. He needed garlic & lemongrass goodness, spices to clear the sinuses, and something that would actually be edible to his poor, ailing tastebuds. I decided to try & replicate the fabulous soup of Changs for Mr Lici. Judging from how much he ate, the results were not too shabby. I made it a little too spicy, but that was easily rectified by adding another container of chicken broth to the leftovers.

Happy Birthday, M!

7:45 am by

Birthdays are a big deal at Casa Angelicious. We usually have several celebrations:

  1. Bdays seem to almost always fall on a weekday. A school day, to boot. So birthday day is celebrated.
  2. So is “King for a Day” (the first Saturday after the birthday, where the Bday Boy gets to choose all meals, movies, activities, etc.).
  3. Then comes the birthday party, a month or so later.
  4. Let’s not forget the Grandparents’ Visit, where bday boy is taken out for dinner.
  5. Sometimes we celebrate their bday at church with Refreshment Time. And cake. Lots o’ cake.

Kids Cook: Cottage Cheese Protein Pancakes

8:45 am by

Cottage cheese pancakes are a huge favorite in our house. As in, “don’t count on leftovers.” And J, being a good 10 and a half, was in need of cooking lessons. What better way to start than Protein Pancakes?

This recipe started from a cutout in The Oregonian’s FoodDay (every Wednesday), with some modifications (of course).
