rainbow coconut curry noodle soup with chicken

dear rainbow coconut curry noodle soup with chicken,

I am totally in love with you.

and when my friends get to know you, I think they’ll love you too.


even though the pictures of you are kind of blurry because it’s february and there is practically ZERO light coming through my window even at high noon. more like dark noon. *grumble grumble*

it really is getting better as we begin to eek our way out of the short winter days, but it’s been a challenge for sure. I do use artificial lights sometimes but it just doesn’t have that same oomph as really good natural light. I think if you’ve ever played around with a camera you know what I mean.

but for now what I really need to do is convince you to make this amazing soup. because it is kind of the best thing EVER and it will totally brighten your day. it’s super satisfying and it has been sitting in my inbox for more than is an appropriate amount of time for something this yummy to sit in my inbox! (sorry not sorry because, here you go!)

pretty sure the only thing that was disappointing about making these drumsticks was the fact that there wasn’t enough for everyone to pack some for lunch tomorrow. lesson learned! won’t be making that mistake again.

throw together your marinade before bed, or in the morning before you leave for work (I promise it won’t take you more than 5 minutes! happy dance! happy dance!) preheat your oven, pat them dry, and bake for a healthy 30 minutes while you throw together a salad and you’ll be patting yourself on the back for a well executed home cooked meal that looks and tastes like it took a whole lot more effort than it actually did.

go you! you weekday dinner warrior, you. Continue reading
