It's time to make soup. I caught some kind of bug, so I made my I'm-sick-and-I-want-comfort-food-soup. It's really just chicken noodle but when I'm not feeling well, tea, soft boiled eggs, oranges and chicken noodle soup are the foods I can stomache.
Here's my chicken noodle soup recipe (this time, anyway. It changes from one time to another.)
2 quarts of water
3 chicken bouillon cubes or 3 cups of chicken broth
3 stalks of chopped celery
1 cup of chopped carrots
1 or 2 onions, chopped (I used 2 medium)
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
herbs of your choice, to your taste. I used rosemary and marjarom.
1-2 cloves of chopped garlic
dash or two of hot sauce
salt to taste
black pepper to taste
1-2 cups of cooked chicken, cubed
12 ounces of egg noodles
Put everything except the noodles in the pot in the order listed, turning the heat on as soon as you have the water in the pot. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Add the noodles and cook until they are done, about 10 minutes.
This makes enough to get me through, and there's usually enough for Larry as well. He doesn't even need to be sick to like it!
