Say Yes Challenge - New Soup

Saturday, February 20, 2010
As you all know I am doing a 'Say Yes Challenge.' Click here for more details. My friend Karima asked me to meet her for lunch at one of our favorite Thai spots Saturday afternoon.

The challenge: eat soup

This may not sound bad to you but it is to me. The old me would have said "no thanks." When it comes to food I am VERY picky. I'm not adventurous at all. I stick to what I know and I don't order new things. When it comes to soup I only eat: tomato, chicken noodle and clam chowder. That's about it and I'd never order soup from a restaurant.

Flash back: In High School, the entire Volleyball team went to a Chinese restaurant for dinner. At this restaurant they served us some soup. I ate the soup - and the taste was horrific. Ever since then I vowed to NEVER eat a random soup from a restaurant. I stick to Moms homemade, the occasional canned low sodium Progresso and sometimes 'Hale & Hearty' in NYC but only the 10 veggie.

Trying soup from a thai restaurant ... I would have passed on. So I tried the soup and ...

It was delicious! Sooo amazing. I can't even explain to you how great this soup was. It was a basil chicken soup. I wish I knew the recipe so I could make it myself.

In addition to the soup. I also tried my first curry puff.



and this was also VERY good as well.


For the main meals I got healthy ginger chicken w/ brown rice.



and my friend Karima tried something new and got red curry chicken with white rice.




We had so much fun and some amazing Thai food. Moral of this story ...
try something new, you may end up just loving it : )

  10. I love how you tried something you normally wouldn't. There are some wonderful soups out there! It's unfortunate you came across a bad one, you should try chicken and sweetcorn, it's one of the most common but a favourite :D
    The food all looks so good!
    & Thank you for your nice comment ^.^
