No bike today, but I made yummy soup!

It stormed all day with only a few breaks here and there. I was planning on going to the Wednesday night ride again, but there wasn't a break in the weather, and no one showed up. I'll ride in pretty much anything, as you all know. Everyone else wimped out.

Anyhow, on with my awesome soup! I experimented yesterday with some stuff, and made a pretty good soup, but decided to one-up it tonight, since my wife thought it was good enough for a repeat.

It's chicken broth, imitation crab meat (I'm not rich!), shrimp that I cooked and peeled before putting in the soup, chunks of chicken breast that I browned before putting in the soup, cubes of firm tofu, cauliflower florets, baby corn, and pieces of cabbage. And just a little bit of thai chili oil.

The end result needed just a little bit of soy sauce and a touch more chili oil than I'd originally used. It's a hearty soup with a thin base. Some spring rolls and the soup combined for a complete late-night supper.

Now I really need to ride tomorrow. I'm hoping the weather clears up in time for the Brookside ride tomorrow. Maybe I'll hit that one. Just 15 miles away from 400. I'll take my hybrid out in the rain and run a lap around Olathe if it comes to that.

You got a nice day to get those last 15 in today. I'm thinking about hitting the trail for a bit during lunch.
