I had planned on doing some more holiday decorating today, instead I am fighting whatever bug has left me sniffling, achy and feverish. It's that time of year. Whenever I have a loved one who feels this way I make my favorite Chicken soup recipe and rush it right over. I don't know for sure that it has healing properties, but it sure tastes good when you're suffering.
I shared this four years ago when a blog friend was feeling ill. Of course, this time I had leftover turkey and the broth I made from the bones so it isn't technically "chicken" soup, but it tastes just as good and it's a great way to use up that turkey. If I weren't sick already I would have made it up and frozen it without the noodles, I would have also put the chopped turkey / chicken in a separate frozen package. I don't like to overcook the meat when it has already been cooked. Then I could thaw the broth and veggies, add the noodles and meat and be ready to eat in no time.
I did a step by step recipe at the link, don't let it intimidate you. It looks like more work than it is and it is so good for you and so worth the effort.
Now, I'm off to grab the nearest quilt and veg on the sofa until I can breathe again.
The good news is, about all I can do is visit blogs. Everything has a silver lining ;>)
