Soup and a blankie

Cantonese cuisine Hybrid red bean soup

Today is one of those days when I need comfort food; I’m hoping to fulfill that need with red bean and ham soup, a recipe that I’m making up as I go, so we shall see.  My daughter already said that the cooking beans smelled “gross”.  That wasn’t very encouraging, but in light of her frequent negative opinions and observances of some of the things I cook, I’m going to ignore that.  Normally, after tasting, she changes her mind.

Work was particularly taxing today so I’m happier than usual that it’s my Friday.  Couple that with the back pain that is lingering since yesterday, and I’m feeling a tad out of sorts.  Hmm, a nice quiet evening at home with a bowl of soup?  And, I don’t have to set my alarm clock for tomorrow?  Yes, I’ll take it.

Tomorrow will be a better day; I will probably rise early in spite of the fact that I don’t have to because that’s just how I roll.  I’ll make coffee, then devotion and prayer time, and I will feel compelled to check my blog for comments and then I have a list of things that must be done.  For now, time to check the food, snuggle up and relax.

Happy Thursday evening to all, Be safe, blessed and happy!
