A recipe for Egg Drop Soup. Egg Drop Soup with sliced green onions. An Egg Drop Soup recipe perfect for cold days. There are two kinds of people, people who turn red when they are embarrassed, and people that do not. I can feel the blood travel from torso into my face when I am embarrassed enough to turn red, and I know it is happening. There is nothing I can do about it, and it sucks. The thing about turning red is you can’t just act cool and that what just happened wasn’t embarrassing because everyone knows you are embarrassed. Your face is red. Yesterday at the gym I had a face turning red incident. Like a lot of people, I have an iPhone Velcro sleeve thing that makes me look like a power ranger and a playlist aptly titled “work out” that contains a bunch of songs that help try and get into doing cardio.  While in the locker room sliding my iPhone into my armband thing, the music started playing really loud, and it was a monstrously inappropriate rap song. So so so inappropriate. I tried to swiftly make the music stop but of course my iPhone chose that moment to have a meltdown and so it took an extra couple of seconds to get it to stop. I could feel the heat of the all the naked women in the locker room staring at me questioning my offensive taste in music. Horrible. My face was so red, there was just no way I could play it cool. I ended up just staring at the floor, mumbling sorry, and getting out of there. Ugh. Anyway…

So we all know it’s flu season and people are getting sick left and right. We wanted to share a new sick soup with you. This egg drop soup is for people who are getting sick of chicken noodle, it could also be for people who just want a really cozy soup to eat while they watch this crazy storm brewing outside their windows. I hope everyone stays safe, and uses this as an excuse to make lots of yummy food.

    As a big fan of monstrously inappropriate music, I have to ask, what song were you listening to? Soup looks delicious BTW.

  3. Michelle Not Specified Not Specified

    What a great sick day soup! Chicken noodle soup can get so boring!

  4. Shelly Not Specified Not Specified

    Yum! I have the red face problem too! Sometimes I’ll just be slightly embarrassed and I can feel my face get redder and redder! It’s awful!

    That sucks! I am a red faced person too. It’s totally obvious when I get embarrassed. The worst is that sometimes when I can feel that I’m so red it makes me even more embarrassed and I start crying. I’m really curious what song it was too! ;)

    Egg drop soup…mmmm…

    It’s my birthday tomorrow, so my work friends all sang for me today… turned beet red. Hate it so much. Why can’t I just be graceful and cool? I bet Ingrid Bergman never blushed. Sigh.

    On the other hand, I love a good egg drop soup and I like your recipe very much! Making your version next. :)

    I find egg drop soup very comforting though I would probably never request it. I also want to know what horridly inappropriate song it was that you blasted at the naked ladies.

  8. Kenzie Not Specified Not Specified

    I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, I could literally eat the whole 3 person serving of egg drop at the restaurant. Yum!

  9. Lindsey (Lou Lou Biscuit) Not Specified Not Specified

    This was one of my favorites when I was a kid! I need to prepare it to see how my now grown up palate likes it. From the looks of this post, I think I will love it!

  10. Nancie (Painted Palate) Not Specified Not Specified

    Yes, Egg Drop! I AM sick of plain Chicken Noodle soup and this is a timely and welcome change of pace. Thank you!

    P.S. Teri, we’re dying to know what the song was. Please tell us (use punctuation marks to spell the words if you have to) – I’m guessing half of us also have it on our “workout” playlist. Rappers have potty mouth.

  11. Tahny Not Specified Not Specified

    My mom used to make egg drop soup…this is such of fun soup to make too! Thanks for the recipe!

  12. Sarah Not Specified Not Specified

    Don’t let those lover-room ladies shame you out of your work-out rap! Who cares if it’s super duper inappropriate. Turn it up and start grinding next time. I say own your embarrassing moments. Give ’em something to talk about.

  13. Sarah Not Specified Not Specified

    *and by lover-room, I meant locker room.

    Who has the red face now! …It’s me.

  14. Lauren Not Specified Not Specified

    I made this Saturday night and it was fantastic. My mom never really taught me how to make it, which is a shame because it was so easy and delicious! (My roommate and boyfriend loved it too)

    For some reason I haven’t stopped by for a long time, and now that I am looking at all this great stuff I have missed I am kicking myself. This soup looks GREAT! As do all of the recipes that I scrolled through on the way down… Love your stuff!

    Getting red raced just shows you have the good graces to know when something is inappropriate–certainly better than not knowing or not caring. : ) Can’t wait to try the soup.
