    Tom Kha Soup | I was supposed to go out with friends for dinner the other night but I called them and told them I was sick and shouldn't go out. About an hour later, they showed up at the door with some Tom Ka soup from the Thai place in Harvard Square. It helped my sore throat and I really felt like it was really restorative so I thought I would make a batch of my own so I could have it again. This isn't vegetarian but I did find recipes online for it. | From: anurbancottage.blogspot.com
