Eats & Treats ~ Thai Ginger Chicken Soup

Whoa. This soup just ROCKS! Seriously!
While looking through recipes I found a version of this soup. It sounded so delicious but knew it would need a few tweaks to make it “just right”. So, I set to work and wow were we ever happy! With chicken, ginger, Sriracha and a lot of other yummy Thai flavors this soup is definitely a hit.

Chillin’ in Charleston

We are currently hanging out in the Charleston area while awaiting the finalization of Mark’s workers comp case. We have an end in site (yea!!) but not much can be said until all is final.

Workers comp cases are complicated at best so while everything is still open we are trying not to muddy the waters. Hence, we won’t be disclosing our exact location until it’s finalized.

Until then, I have some awesome recipes coming up so stay tuned for food!! Lots and lots of food. 😊.

I did manage to get some new awning lights the other day! Peppers and cactus!! Or “peppers & pricks” as Mark calls them hehehe! Here they are:

Bye Bye, North Carolina!

We are on the road again.  This time headed to the Charleston, SC area.  We need to be there for some upcoming meetings with Mark’s attorney for his workers comp case.  The plan is to be there for the month of January and possibly February.  Hopefully this will close his case and we will be FREE to hit the road for good!  Where will we go?  Wherever the wind may blow us!  Until then, we will enjoy Charleston and all it has to offer.  Goodbye, North Carolina!
