My newest food group is Thai food.....love it and simply CANNOT get enough of it. Went to a fabulous restaurant for Thai on New Year's Eve and I wished I'd had a hollow leg.

Here's a recipe:

Coconut Chicken Soup

3/4 pound boneless, skinless chicken meat
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 (14 ounce) cans coconut milk (or you can make with the powered mix)
2 cups water
2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger root (fresh is best but you can buy and freeze ginger and it's just as easy)
4 tablespoons fish sauce
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1/4 tablespoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
2 tablespoons thinly sliced green onion
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro

Cut chicken into thin strips and saute in oil for to 2 to 3 minutes until the chicken turns white.

In a pot, bring coconut milk and water to a boil. Reduce heat. Add ginger, fish sauce, lime juice, cayenne powder and turmeric. Simmer until the chicken is done, 10 to 15 minutes.

Sprinkle with scallions and fresh cilantro and serve steaming hot. The restaurant where I ate served with tomatoes but I didn't particularly care for them in the soup.

Yum!!! Sounds fantastic.

We are nuts for Pho, Vietnam noodle houses. We have been frequenting our favorite one for at least 5 years, even following them after they moved locations. Great stuff and fairly low fat.

BTW, I am back on my exercise regime and weight watchers diet. I am trying to lose the holiday weight and get in good shape before I have to have my knee scoped from an injury on Dec. 10 (dislocated the knee and tore the miniscus in karate, due to not staying in shape and jumping right in....my bad, now paying......folks, it pays to stay in shape!!!).

How many fat/calories are in that coconut milk used anyway, Mary?

Happy New Year, girl!

Regards,
Vicki

Vicki, here are the "deets" on coconut milk - I usually use the powdered stuff because it's easier (and I realize the fat content is high but it's not something that one usually eats every day - this should be treat food, folks!)

I hope the scope goes well - keep me posted!!!

BTW - I'm getting heavy into Korean food too.....just love the spices!!!!

Thank, Mary.

Vicki
