While dogsitting for my parents in Denver, I noticed that my mom had a ton of sage still on her sage bush from last summer. My boyfriend and I thought it would be a great idea to make some sage bundles to burn. After making four large bundles, we still had so much left over! Since sage has so many great health properties, we decided to make a sage herbal tea.
Looking back, it is surprising how many of the Thai dishes we made in the scorching heat of Chiang Mai are a much better fit for the snowy, cold winter in Colorado. Tom Yam soup is a staple in Thai cuisine. It is even easier to make than coconut curry and also extremely healthy. This is a shrimp Tom Yam, but you can easily make it with veggies or any other protein. This dish is spicy, but has a bright acidity from the lime and lemongrass.
