Just like Jack

When Jack's mother sent him into the village to sell their cow to buy food for their table she was vexed when he returned with a handful of magic beans from the butcher. In similar fashion I went into the Arts District for an acupuncture appointment and came home with a bag of magic soup mix.

Delirious from my appointment I ponied up the ten dollars for the soup mix and just like butcher convinced dear Jack the beans were priceless, my soup sticks came with promises of increased energy, weight loss, and transformed phlegm, released water and improved digestion. My Peace Offering Soup contains dang shen, chen pi, fu ling, yi yi ren and vegetarian soup base among other mystical ingredients. I think I'll serve it up with a little Fe, fa, fi-fo-fum on the side!

All Jack had to do to change his fate was sow the beans and wait for the bean stalk to grow. Apparently all I have to do is add water...if I meet a giant or come across some golden eggs I'll let you know!
