Coconut curry chicken noodle soup
This morning was one of those rare mornings when I actually got up early and spent a good amount of quiet time before hitting the ground running.
Usually, I growl silently at my alarm clock, snooze it to the very last nanosecond before the day takes over. So it was awesome to actually sit down with my morning decaf (not a typo) and quietly read and journal.
Journaling has been so hit and miss for my adult life. I have one for myself which I sometimes scribble in. Then I have one for each of The Littles where I attempt to write more legibly and thoughtfully. Sadly, it’s been embarrassingly too long since my last journal entry for the boys. Like, they’ve each grown a head taller since the last note.
I love jotting down the precious things little things. Things that make me laugh, smile, and things I don’t ever want to forget. The dailies of life have a habit of getting in our way, and I just want to record and take snapshots of allthethings. Thoughts, words, actions… the sweet mundanes that become fond memories.
Now, off the nostalgic and onto food. It’s what you came here for, so here we go: Coconut Curry Chicken Noodle Soup. Chewy, toothsome, thick rice noodles. We’re off to a ravishing start.
