They tasted so good and the mixture was already sweet and coconutty.. we didn’t need any toppings or maple syrup!

Or maybe we were just too hungry to properly prepare them!

Lemon Chicken & Rice Soup

How was your day?!

Mine was really chill today and I loved it. This morning I was hooked on the Netflix documentary ‘Making a Murderer’. I watched 4 episodes in a row.. with each one comes more twists and turns and it’s just so interesting! I keep finding myself wondering what’s going to happen next and I keep getting confused with who’s side I’m on. The best part is; it’s a true story, I love anything with a true story background.. I’ll probably start watching it again tonight, I’m determined to see what happens at the end now and what the result is. If you get a chance, check it out and tweet me what you think of it.

Anyways… moving on to the real reason why you started reading this post. SO I love Soup Stock (a soup cafe here in Tokyo) and one of my favourite soups from them is their Lemon Chicken. However, because their soups are all seasonally limited, that soup no longer exists, but I still need it in my life. So I decided to make it myself from scratch. It’s actually a traditional Greek soup called Avgolemeno, I’ve had it before at a Greek restaurant too. It’s easy to make, it just takes time (about 3 hours) and it turned out really good! It was more natural and fresh tasting than the Soup Stock one, if I may say so myself ^.^
