Mulligatawny Soup

I was home sick the other day, suffering from the aftermath of a bad migraine.  Luckily enough, I got 2 magazines in the mail, clean eating and a running magazine. This definitely cheered me up. By the evening(after a long nap and about 10 episodes of 'the Big C' later), I was feeling better and decided to make this typical indian soup (recipe from Clean Eating). If you are wondering why it doesn't look quite like the one you order at the indian restaurant..well I couldn't tell you. It didn't taste exactly the same either, but it is still really good and is probably a lot healthier/lighter.

I have since gotten, Cooking Light, Real Simple and Bon Appetit in the mail.. I'm swimming in delicious recipes. Hopefully I will have time to try some of them out. I love magazine really is a gift that just keeps on giving.
