I have lights in my house! Beautiful overhead lights in all the rooms and the porches! What an outstanding thing, when you live in shadows and candles for so long. I still forget I can turn on a switch!

4 c. Chicken Broth: 4 c. water and 2 T. chicken bullion
1 chicken breast or 1.5 cups shrimp
5 T. of lime juice
2 tsp. of grated ginger
3 slices of lemon grass about 2 inches long: smash it, boil it, and then take out

1.5 tsp. of spicy chili garlic paste
1 T. thin soy sauce
1 medium tomato, diced
½ onion sliced
After cooked: sprinkle a little in each bowl after serving
Dash of cilantro
Dash of green onion
In a medium saucepan, bring the vegetable broth to a boil. Once boiling, add the lime leaves,
ginger, and lemongrass and boil for 5 minutes. Remove the lemongrass. Add the chicken,
mushrooms, thin soy sauce, lime juice, tomatoes, onions and boil for another 5 minutes.
Garnish with cilantro and green onions.
Consume the soup, fix rice to put in the soup, or consume soup and eat rice on side with soy
sauce. I prefer the rice in the soup! John Ruddock with Julie Rosen
Word of the Day – luces – lights
Tip of the Day – I would do this soup without the fish, and substitute Bragg’s amino acids, or coconut crystal aminos, for the soy.
