anything with a marked down price tag on it, is worth buying. especially if i have no use for it.
right now, (post holidays), it's mega dangerous. stores are practically giving away christmas chocolates wrapped in their tacky and outdated crimson, gold, and hunter green foil. but guess what? inside it's still the same amazing brown yummy chocolate. duh! anyway, it's a way-too-tempting bargain that i just can't say no to.
my point? i think i effed up my stomach on this round of chocolate binging and to re-set things in the bowels, i made myself the ultimate 'all good, no-fat, tummy-soothing, yum-o soup'.
starting with boiling water in a pot, i added a chopped clove of garlic and some slices of ginger root. i then added a teaspoon of miso paste, a salty fermented soy product that can be bought at health food or asian food stores. it's super healthy, ultra cheap and it pretty much never spoils. my container has been in the back of my fridge for at least 2 years, the sticker says it cost $2.99. sick!
i made sure the paste dissolved completely and then i added sliced veggies; oyster mushrooms, carrot, baby bok choy. and some of the left-over creamed corn from the cornbread muffins i made a while back. (miraculously, the creamed corn passed my very discerning food spoilage sniff-test).
the final touch: dropping a scrambled egg-white into the boiling pot and then stirring it gently while it's cooking.
bye bye blow-out.
