Simple Soy and Scallion Soup

It started with a tickle in the back of my throat on Monday.  Then a cough.  Then a cough that sounded like my lungs were trying to escape my body.  And then this morning, I awoke feeling as though I'd been hit by a Mack truck full of sinus infection.  But its summer!  This isn't supposed to happen in nice weather; it goes hand-in-hand with the slushier months of the year.

Chinese Take-Out via Homemade: Egg Rolls and Sesame Noodles

I love Chinese food, but always feel a minor sense of shame when I see the number of fortune cookies they include with my meal - five as of our last order.  FIVE fortune cookies?  Do you think we ordered enough food for FIVE whole people? (It's just the husband and I.)  Well, to be fair... you might have a point.

30 grease-filled minutes later, I'm stuffed full and yet know that I'll be eating cold lo mein noodles in front of the fridge a few hours down the road.  It's habit forming.  So, in an effort to make our indulgence a little lighter - and truthfully, to use up a lot of cabbage and carrots from our CSA - I set out to make a few different recipes.
