Road to Financial Freedom

  “Spendthrift” is my mom’s mantra for how she handles money. As soon as she started giving me monetary money when I was in 6th grade, she would tell me not to spend everything, especially on the things that I do not need. Thanks to my mom, I learned how to save in a piggy bank early on. But as I grow up, things change. I learned that to live a decent life, we need to work hard for the life that we want. But being a nurse in my country, the salary is not enough to feed our family let alone live a comfortable life. I have three children and pets at home. To sustain all our needs, I need to find ways how to earn in addition to what my husband is earning. I started to find ways how to earn passive income and a steady stream of income. Growing up, I know that once you graduate from college and earn a degree, you can earn a living. But there was a shift of mindset when I was exposed to the power of social media.

Spinach Cream Soup

My kids sometimes are very hard to predict when it comes to their choice of food. They would request for soup and then the next day they want chicken or fish or hotdogs! So what can I do now to make them interested in the food I will serve them except to make something new and make it extra “yummy”.

For today’s recipe, I thought of making chicken but since we already had chicken for two days in a row, I thought of making a soup. Yes, a soup, which I have wanted to make few weeks ago for a secret ingredient.

I made this recipe using my thermal cooker, which is similar to this one except that my bella is a fraction of its price. I will list down procedures using my thermal cooker and a regular pot.

Creamy Spinach Soup

Ingredients:

1 cup Spinach leaves
1 ½ cup fresh milk or evaporated milk
3 tbsp all purpose flour or 1 tbsp cornstarch
500 ml water
1 tbsp Lea and Perrins Worcestershire Sauce
1 chicken cube or chicken stock
pepper to taste

Procedure (thermal cooker):

  1. Set timer to 10 minutes, speed 3 and 100 degreesC temperature, pour water inside the bowl and chicken cube. Gently add fresh milk at the 5 minute mark and the all purpose flour.
  2. When water inside the bowl is already hot, remove the lid, put the spinach leaves and set it to speed 8 to chop the leaves for 1 minute. Cook the spinach leaves for another 2minutes, set the temperature to 100 degreesC, add in one tbsp Lea and Perrin's Worcestershire sauce.
  3. Serve and enjoy!


Procedure (Regular pot):
  1. Coarsely chop spinach leaves, set aside.
  2. Bring 500 ml water to simmer and add chicken broth cube, gradually add milk and all-purpose flour.
  3. Add spinach leaves and let it boil for another 15 seconds. Season with pepper and add one tablespoon of Lea and Perrins Worcestershire sauce.
  4. Remove from heat. Serve and enjoy.



Mind you, the kids loved it and they asked for more! Sometimes I find cream soup can be a bit boring and all you got is a milky taste which lingers in your buds. But adding a little distinct flavor makes a lot of difference.
