I have served my time in aches and chills and sneezes and sinus headaches, so germs:
The real kicker is that a week before I fell ill, I made a large pot of homemade chicken soup for two friends that were sick, one downtown and one in Brooklyn, and delivered* them to the various parties without touching them or anything else, and then used hand sanitizer as soon as I left.
So me getting sick? Totally Not Fair.
The soup consisted of:
chicken stock, homemade
2 chicken breasts poached for 20 min in the stock, then removed and shredded
carrot/celery/onion trifecta, sautéed in a bit of olive oil
cubed butternut squash, roasted in the oven
and of course, love.
However, as I am still feeling less than stellar, I can't be bothered to tell you proportions or order of operations, or really anything useful, because I did the whole thing off the cuff anyway.
But I took a picture of my soup.
So I posted it.
It was tasty.
Tho clearly lacking magical restorative powers...
Now I must get healthy as my in-laws arrive tomorrow to watch their son (my hubs) run in the NYC Marathon on Sunday, and I need to not be coughing and sneezing on them.
So send good vibes, people.
Get 'er done.
