I’m having wedding withdrawl. Combine that with the potential cold and sore throat icky feelings I woke up with and it was necessary for me to come home early from work and make a pot of soup. I did the fast track kind of soup vs. the simmer all day long start from scratch. Ain’nobody got time for that today.
Here’s what I did for mine.
1 Rotisserie chicken
big handful of carrots sliced
big handful of celery sliced
spoon full of chopped garlic
1 yellow onion chopped fine
half a thing of sliced mushrooms I had in the fridge
bay leaf or two
1 carton of chicken broth
about three cups of water
two little square bullion cubes/chicken flavor
half a bag of amish egg noodles
salt/pepper to taste
bring to boil, lower to simmer until ready to eat.
Mark came home from an arts council meeting, too late to take our Christmas Card photo. We sat down to big bowls of soup and sleeves of saltine crackers and he said, “this is the best chicken noodle soup I’ve ever had.”
Then he made me another cup of tea.
I feel like 12 miles of dirt road, progressively feeling worse since I got home, so I’ll be hitting the bed early. I’ll slather my feet with Vicks Vap-O-Rub and call it good by 7:30.
What’s your feel better recipe?
