      This sounds really good. We live where there's lots and snow and it gets very cold. Coming in from the cold it's always nice to have a nice hot soup. Your soup sounds very interesting, voted up.

      Sounds wonderful and filling yet light too. You had me at chicken and coconut, then again whenever I see you have published a new hub, I immediately become hungry and get out my grocery list, I am sure by now my neighbors must think I am running an underground Indian restaurant with all the smells of curry, coconut and spices.
