One of the things that I love most about blogging is that I get to woo you with pretty things. I love taking pictures of food when the light is just right in my apartment and then writing you a post and telling you wacky things about my life. I love all of your comments, enthusiasm, and stories when I share bits of my soul with you through food.
The thing that I appreciate most about blogging though is that none of you are ever standing in my kitchen when I have an epic. kitchen. fail. And that was my kitchen this week. I had decided it was time to learn to make my own tempeh and boy that plan did not work out in any capacity. I couldn't get the temperature right for the starter to flourish, the beans weren't covered well so they dried out, and then I let it all sit out too long. Even properly-made tempeh looks pretty creepy so you can image how bad improperly-made tempeh looks.
But I was lucky enough to have one epic kitchen success this week. Enter tom kha soup.
