Today I make a simple soup which I remember my grandma used to make, which she had other ingredients in it. My favourite. Could not go down to Chinatown to get it, so, I am making a simple version of my grandma soup.

The weather is too hot to cook. Anyway, can’t eat much when it’s a hot day. I have some dried anchovies. Might use them to add flavour to the soup. My soup is comfort, healthy and delicious. Let’s cook!!!!


2 bunches spinach, stems removed, washed and drained
4 large eggs
