Soup

Tuesday, March 12th, 2013

For reasons too detailed to explain, this item is on my computer – why don’t I share it with the world?

Thai chicken noodle soup
Even if you don’t have much chicken left over, you should still make this. A few shreds will be plenty. This is a very laissez-faire recipe: I happily use some leafy greens and a julienned spring onion along with a handful of beansprouts instead of tender-shoot stir-fry. Similarly, udon or soba noodles, spaghetti or linguine could be substituted for vermicelli.
Ingredients
• 1 litre/1¾ pints chicken stock
• 150g/5oz thin rice noodles or mung bean thread vermicelli
• 200ml/7fl oz coconut milk
• 1 x 3-4cm/1-1½in piece fresh ginger, peeled and sliced thinly, then cut into skinny strips
• 2 tbsp fish sauce
• 1 fresh long red chilli, de-seeded and cut into strips
• 1 tsp ground turmeric
• 1 tsp ready-made tamarind paste
• 1 tsp soft brown sugar
• 2 tbsp lime juice
• approx. 150g/5oz leftover cooked chicken, shredded
• 250g/9oz tender-shoot stir-fry (a mixture of pak choi, bok choi, spindly asparagus, Chinese kale, peanut shoots and Chinese chives), or other assorted vegetables
• 2-3 tbsp chopped fresh coriander, to serve
Preparation method
1. Put the chicken stock in a good-sized pan to heat up.
2. Put the noodles in a bowl and pour boiling water over (or cook as instructed on the packet).
3. Add the remaining ingredients, except the tender-shoot stir-fry, to the pan and bring to the boil.
4. When the chicken is piping hot, add the tender-shoot stir-fry and when the vegetables are tender – a minute or two should be plenty if you’re using the tender shoots – add the drained noodles. (Or simply divide the noodles between bowls and pour the soup over them.)
5. Serve sprinkled with chopped fresh coriander.

PS.  This recipe was probably donated to a web-site by somebody famous – but I didn’t keep the links and cannot remember who. If it is your recipe, or it was you who donated it – hey, that’s the price of fame – if you can’t stand the heat stay out of the kitchen. (Pun not intended)

a quick, open note to STUART BROWN and other capable and interested individuals.
if you use this theme, or even simply visit pages such as these that use this theme, do you find yourself automatically clicking the close box in the top left-hand corner of the post/page?

this is a thread for the ‘WordPress’ themes forum – if you are not quick i have already opened a topic there.

there is a debate to resolve about re-inventing the wheel and the usefulness of the idea of attempting to recreate the original Mac user experience in its entirety in ‘WordPress’. i’ve not completely worked out if i think it is a good idea myself – i simply thought that the retro design of this theme would be visually appealing – and then i discovered that Mr. Brown had already implemented the idea with a great deal of success.
i am presently blogging with this theme to investigate the possibilities, and found myself constantly trying to close the post ‘window’ by clicking the close box.
i do know that many learned textbooks have been produced on the Graphical User Interface – a new topic in computing and the world in the late 1970s/early 1980s. Now, with Mac OS X(bigcat), Windows Vista, et al. the fine details are overtaking the concept and the problems of memory, speed of access, interconnection and so forth dominate thought in computer science; ease of use is almost taken for granted and we are all assumed to have learnt the language of interaction. this is a simply an open question, although it is not just about mystery meat navigation.
‘WordPress’ themes seem to be platform independent and those that i have the pleasure of using are incredibly functional already. i only wonder if Stuart Brown or the theme thread moderators have any thoughts to add before i lose myself in historical research?
as always, any help or input, feedback, etc. is welcome.
