Fish and Clam Tomyam Soup


Yesterday we had the 1st snow for this winter.It's just about 1-2 inch.Usually the white flake comes around Christmas eve or day but this year it's seem to came early then usual..I heard that we will have a very freezing cold winter this season..Personally I hate winter becos I hate cold..I rarely step out of the house if unnecessary during winter..Well,what is the best food to eat during this cold season? For me personally I like pipping hot and spicy soup like tomyam or curry broth..It's feel good to have this kind of exotic broth to warm up our body,right?
