I have been feeling under the weather for the past five days. Everything came to a head yesterday morning. After the alarm went off I wasn’t feeling so hot. Today was slightly better and spent most of it sleeping. My appetite has come back but my tastebuds are not quite to par. I needed soup but I didn’t have any meats thawed about. What to do…? What to do? I pondered.
I remember before feeling sick that Denise from Quickies on the Dinner Table had conjured up a wonderful chilled minted cucumber yoghurt soup. YES!!! This should be the remedy. I actually had everything except for the mint, much to my chagrin. Instead, I substituted for the ubiquitous dill. Now I love dill as much as the next gal, but I also didn’t want a-typical flavours. I wanted that mint with its refreshingness. What’s a girl to do?
Ok Mr. Dill, you win this time. You were a lovely, spot-on substitute. But next time, next time I call on Ms. Mint because she’s so saucy. Wonderful, wonderful soup. No word of a lie, I could barely taste before but now I can taste the garlic, the dill, the cucumber… *sigh*. Thanks for your help on this Denise, not only am I feeling better but I can taste again!!! *mua*
P.S.: Reading/replying/commenting will resume later this week, possibly on the weekend. Going back to bed now. Night night.
