WOYWW #170

Not much happening at my desk this week, went into hospital last Thursday and recuperating now.
The curly wurly scarf in the foreground, I almost knitted a whole ball waiting in hospital to be seen on Monday after complications with my surgery. The grey ball on the right is destined to be a neck scarf. I need to clean up the left side of the desk. I never had the Tuesday group girls over last week cos I wasn't feeling crash hot and didn't want to get sick prior to the surgery last Thursday, so the desk got half cleared away lol.
This is the start to an Asian Soup called Congee, it is eaten at breakfast like we eat porridge. My sister who is a great cook said the broth needs to be made one day and the rest of it made another day. Chicken carcass, pork bone and bacon bone (I couldnt get any pork bone so I used a ham hock, probably get yelled at by the expert cooks in the family but what can you do). 1 piece of ginger and Won ton soup base to make this stock

Pop on over to Julia's Stamping Ground to see more desks at work.

Bridget that soup or breakfast food sounds yummie and I think the hock was the only option available. Now that desk of yours in looking a little clean, you need to get your act into gear and mess it up LOL I do hope you are feeling better now, rest, get waited on and get better.

Hi Bridget,
Pity about not having the girls round but probably the better decision. Blow the complications! That's bad luck but I hope you're feeling much better. Take it easily, it's a good investment not to get too busy too soon. That soup looks good and is no doubt very restorative. Get into it :-)
Thanks for your comment last week.
Smiles,
Ros. #46
