Salads - A Complete Meal And Health Food

Salads to me have been one that is purely restricted to being a dietician's best friend. Earlier I used to think that these are meant to be only on the menus of those on a health spree.

Soups - A Wonderful Comfort Food For All Seasons

A hot bowl of soup and a book is what I would love to enjoy with on a cold winter day. A rainy day when it is pouring outside and really cool inside, brings with it the urge to have a steaming hot cup of my favorite soup.

However, this does not prevent me from exploring new tastes and experiment. It could be a delicious tomato soup with all the goodness that the red juicy vegetable has to offer or a clear chicken soup as long as its delicious. If I go by preference my three favorite soups would read as - sweet corn chicken soup, cream of almond and the chicken noodle soup. The soft noodles with all the chicken in it is heavenly.
