Recently, Furry and I had need to have a Typhoid injection.
Man, those suckers hurt like a BIOTCH! Not the actual injection so much, but the rolling nausea and throbbing joint pain for the 24 hours afterward has made me think that actually catching typhoid might be a more pleasant option.
So for dinner that night of the injection, we turned to one of our original stand bys in time of need.
Asian Penicillin, aka noodle soup.
Take a packet of Hokkien noddles, loosen them in hot water and set aside.
Into a couple of servings of chicken stock, add a star anise, some ginger, garlic, spring onion greens and a goodly slurp of sesame oil and bring to a gently simmer.
Add some finely sliced chicken thigh meat, some Asian greens, a bit of baby corn, some mushrooms, some gow gees (if you have any) and the noodles at the last minute.
Serve in deep bowls, add a raw egg and a dash of soy, swirl all in together and eat snuggled up on the couch.
