Happy Monday!

We just got back from San Francisco to watch the Dodgers versus Giants, and we ate so many Gilroy garlic fries and clam chowders in a bread bowl!

But as amazing as their food was at AT&T park, San Francisco is also super cold (compared to us weenies with our LA weather), which means I’m now home with one of the worst colds ever.

I’m currently on bedrest right now with a giant bowl of this soup. It’s the only thing that is making me feel better at this point. And the garlic/lemon/ginger/lemongrass here is doing absolute wonders.

So as the weather cools down, be sure to stay warm and have this soup on standby! It will be a god-send!
