I began feeling better by degrees--as the day warmed up, I felt better! Well enough to do some computer work, some laundry, some eBay, and even cooking.
We used to raise them but haven't done so for quite a few years and the building had become an eyesore. There's plenty of salvageable lumber and roofing tin though.
Here's the basic recipe for the soup:
Chicken Noodle Soup
Boneless chicken, cooked and cut into chunks
Onions and celery, chopped (I used the onions I dried last summer)
Herbs to your taste (I only used parsley this time)
Garlic, black and red pepper
Water and chicken broth
For this soup, since I had no chicken broth, I used bouillon cubes. I used 4 quarts of water and 3 cubes.
Add everything except the noodles to the cooking pot and bring to a boil. When boiling, add the noodles. When it returns to a boil, turn down the heat and cook for about 10 minutes or until the noodles are done.
I don't measure when I make soup bu here's a guess at the amounts I used to make 4 quarts of soup: about 3-4 cups of cut-up cooked chicken, about 1 large onion, 2 stalks of celery, a teaspoon of parsley, 1/2 tsp dried minced garlic, 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes, 1/4 tsp black pepper, 1 tsp Worchestershire sauce, 1/2 pound or less of noodles. No salt because bouillon is full of salt and no additional was needed.
