Here is a nice, clear soup that is easy to make, cheap, and good for you. I like making this winter melon soup because a big pot would last my family for a few days.

Some fancy chinese restaurants serve the soup in the melon (after it’s scooped out) but will require advance notice to order. Read the rest of this entry
This is the first part of our epic meal. It also has the least action photos because well, I was helping Patch… but not in terms of cooking.

Oh wait, that child is mine too.
