Broccoli and Blue Cheese Soup

Broccoli and Blue Cheese Soup|Thaimeupkitchen.comMy first memory of eating blue cheese is fuzzy, kinda like blue cheese itself. And I can’t remember not ever liking it, but I do remember when I realized I was the only eight-year-old who did.

I am physical incapable of making the right amount of mashed potatoes. I always make too much. Never too little cause, well… I’m a feeder.

So there is always a cold mound of mash left in the fridge, that I. Just. Cannot. Throw. Away.

Warm Lentil Superfood Salad

Warm Lentil Superfood Salad | Thaimeupkitchen.com

About 5 weeks ago, I sprained my ankle pretty bloody badly. Playing the violent game of tennis, no doubt. My self-inflicted injury earned me an emergency room visit, x-ray, crutches, and a mobility boot. Hell, even zombie eyed London commuters were purposely making eye contact to signal I could have their seat.

Nobody makes direct eye contact on London public transport. Ever.

Now, what does this have to do with warm lentil superfood salad?

Everyone has a talent.

My friend Laura is a hard core Chelsea FC fan. I once watched her school a Liverpool fan so bad that he limped off like she had kicked his puppy. Hard.

People always ask me, “Why would you move here from California?”

And my response is always, for the weather.

Not the complete truth, I know, but coming from the Sunshine State, I admit that seeing the seasons change is still a novelty and that I am a weirdo that loves cold weather.

What’s the best part of winter? Cute gloves, rosy cheeks, flaunting my scarf addiction, hiding under a luscious duvet? Nope. It is my favourite of all British antidotes:  you have to EAT to keep warm. Finally! One of my talents to the rescue!

“You’ll never stay warm with just that salad in you,” my work colleagues would tsk tsk at me during my first winter here. So I have been happily tucking into my antidote of second helpings of potato dauphinoise, followed by a dirty sticky 5 million calorie toffee pudding. 

What can I say? I am cold. 

Very Cold
