I spent about 4 years working in a cubicle, so I know how it feels to be stuck at work while you see your friends living it up in the summer. I can imagine it’s even worse since we all check in to what other people are doing on Instagram. Summer seems so out of reach when you’re sitting under florescent lighting, working on spreadsheets and trying to STAY WARM from the incessant air conditioner. It’s like… SUMMER??! WHAT SUMMER? I’d give anything to be a bored 9 year old, playing bank with old Monopoly money on our summer vacations in Tahoe.
Here’s a soup that will help get you through the week at work. We exploit SUMMER CORN and make a beautiful Thai coconut soup with it. It’s both sweet and spicy as well as light and hearty. I’m pretty sure it would be great with an addition of rice (if you’d like to stretch it out even more) and some cold avocado. I might go crazy and serve it over rice with grilled shrimp on top! What do you say about that?
So if you’re stuck in cubicle land, you can bring the summer INTO your workspace with this soup. It’s sure to warm you up and make you appreciate the season’s best even if you’re sitting behind a desk with a view of your coworker’s crazy origami collection.
