Hot and Sour Soup!
Last night we made an expedition to the Asian market and later took a very successful swing at cooking Hot and Sour soup. It's the first time I've made it and I took eviljohn's advice and went looking at America's Test Kitchen for a recipe. We made this hot and sour soup recipe, except that after marinating the pork I sauted it separately, and we used a vegetable mushroom broth stock instead of chicken broth, both in order to keep the soup vegetarian.

I was really very pleased and especially appreciated their detailed advice on how to fully drain the tofu and how to swirl the egg in. That last will take practice, I think, but I'll get it since I intend to make this soup again. :)

America's Test Kitchen is an awesome source for food information. I've got several issues of their sister magazine, "Cooks' Illustrated", if you'd like to get some more recipes to try.

Excellent! Nothing better than trying out a recipe to find out that it actually a.) works and b.) tastes good. :)
