Healthy (ish, I did use bacon) fully loaded baked potato soup has been haunting me since I saw it on @DebinHawaii ‘s feed then immediately scampered to her blog for the recipe. I finally made it! It needed some situational tweaking because I simply can‘t get certain ingredients here in Mumbai but I have to say, for a soup that‘s extraordinarily healthy but for hubby luring bacon, this was BRILLIANT! Ha, my first Litsy inspired food!


Tamra Soup, yes! Brrrrrr I‘m going to follow suit and make a split pea with ham hocks & bacon. 😋 2y

GlassAsDiamonds @Tamra it‘s soup time (even if it is 28c/82f in Mumbai‘s “winter”....!!). 😊😊😊 I MISS ham, pork products are difficult to get here. I love ham.....😭 post photos so I can live vicariously!! 😊 (edited) 2y
GlassAsDiamonds @Cinfhen nope, HOT!! 😜😜😜😜 Yeah, Aussie expat. I‘ve been here about 13months now and can‘t say I‘m used to it yet! Probably another 20 months to go, not that I‘m counting!!! 😊😊😊 2y
DebinHawaii I am so glad you tried it and were able to make it work for you and you enjoyed it. 🎉😀I am pretty much always tweaking recipes myself. It looks great! And Dubai, wow! I eat soup in the mid-80 degree temps most of the year here but yes, when it's soup weather mid 70s-to low 80s it feels even more like soup time. 😆👍🍲 2y
Tamra @GlassAsDiamonds I love soup in any weather! 😁 But you probably have some really wonderful dal soups! I‘m jealous! 2y
GondorGirl Wait... there's a blog for all the awesome stuff @DebinHawaii eats? Tell me more... 2y
GlassAsDiamonds @DebinHawaii not only did it work but it was roundly praised by hubby who never says nice things about “healthy”!! 😊😊😊😊 2y
GlassAsDiamonds @GondorGirl She just made chocolate covers raspberries....!!!!!! Run, fast!!! 😊😊😊😊😊😱😱😊😊😊😊 2y
GlassAsDiamonds @Tamra as soon as I‘ve cracked the fifty million local words for lentil and then figured out which to use in soups, I shall attempt my own. Until then... yep, we eat a lot of dal, all of it while out!!! 😊😊😊😊 2y
DebinHawaii @GlassAsDiamonds Hah! You are so sweet! 💜 @GondorGirl There's a link to my food blog in my Litsy profile. 😋😆👍 2y
Cinfhen I'm an expat myself, so I understand the countdown !!! I think just viewing EVERY day as an adventure helps!!! 2y
Tamra @GlassAsDiamonds lucky you! 2y
GlassAsDiamonds @Cinfhen Ha!!! Love meeting other expats! 😊😊😊 I‘m trying to not count down to the exclusion of enjoying but some days.... I would really just like a steak, squishy white bread and clean drinking water! Where are you & what do you miss most? 2y
Cinfhen I‘m on year 4 out of 5, (maybe more!?!?) in Israel! I‘m lucky to live in a very Anglo neighborhood, so I‘ve made lots of friends who share a similar background. I think the culture has been a shock and simple things, like parking and ordering a pizza can raise my anxiety levels.... 2y
GlassAsDiamonds @Cinfhen half my brain: woah, four years in Israel. That would be tough! Other half of my brain: PIZZA! I have just found good pizza (with HAM!) after months of hunting but am sternly telling myself I cannot go eat it every day...! 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️ Who are the “save me from ___” type of expat there? Here it‘s baby yoga students who chant in cafes and use the phrase “dear leader” without irony... 2y
Cinfhen Oh God, that would drive me INSANE!!! I actually LOVE the food here! And most of the expats I've met are awesome, it's the older Israeli's who really irk me and the people who work in the government agencies are sooooo frustrating!!! And trying to get through to schedule a dr appointment requires 5 hours and a ton of patience😬I still haven't mastered the language, so that's annoying too 2y
GlassAsDiamonds @Cinfhen 😊 I‘m struggling with the “surprise chili” in just about everything (tea, potato chips, roast chicken, margarita pizza...) some things do not need to be HOT!!! Trying to avoid government but sound similar - never met a bureaucracy they didn‘t like here 😭😭😭😭 (language I‘m currently not even trying with!). 2y
Cinfhen Sounds like an adventure!! I'll be thinking of you...come to Israel for a visit😁 2y

#readathon food and drink plan! The inidentifiable item in the frozen ziploc on the left is beef phô with brisket and meatballs, and I have more meatballs should the broth require. I don't have the sprouts and other fresh ingredients because it was a last-minute add, but if it's nice tomorrow and I feel the need, I'll pop in headphones and go to the market for them. What #litsyeats are on your agenda? @DeweysReadathon

ReadingSusan I did a terrible job with not getting real food ha ha. Just a bunch of snacks. I have to pick my MIL up from dialysis in a few hours so I may have to make a grocery run too. 3y
