Food: woman soup and mini project


Last monday I stayed at home alone because I had a day off and Star had to work. I prepared a post-period soup for myself. 🙂

I used black chicken because it is the most nutritious kind of poultry

while the soup was cooking. I finally did the mini project that I had in my to-do list (for at least a year). Magazine clipping and organizing!!!

I had this combo three times in a row! Love it!!! 🙂

How was everyone’s week? It was a short one for me but it was a stressful one. It is not work related, but big-news related. I will reveal it very soon! 🙂

Q: Do you eat night snack? What do you have? I’ve been having cereals and coconut ice cream lately. Love them both but they make me bloat! 😦

  1. I have to have a late-night snack or I feel weird! It’s almost a ritual for me.

    The soup looks so intense. Black chicken really has a bold flavor. I don’t eat it much though.

  2. Ohhh I love what you’ve done with your magazine recipes! I definitely need to do that one day. I Just have all my recipes in a binder, but not organized well. All my magazines are just stacked in our kitchen cabinet (not organized). I’ll have to try what you’ve done!

    My late night snack is rice cakes with peanut butter, and usually some pumpkin and blueberries. I’m a huge night time snack person!

  3. i never heard of black chicken!? i cannot wait to see your fashion haul and hear the big news! x

  4. I can’t wait to your hear big news, Coco! Dinner looks delish — I’ve never heard of black chicken and I am very intrigued! You are really a girl after my own heart — love your organizing skills! 🙂

  5. Great idea to put all your recipes in one binder! Maybe you can organize mine next? 😉 If I snack at night it’s usually cereal…..

  6. haw????????????????????????????????????????????????????????? black checken ????????????????????? i never saw! it was surprice to me!
