So here it is, the scarlett letter of my stubborness - The red nose, the tissues everywhere, and the necessary purell. I was beyond excited when one of my co-workers brought me some amazing Chicken & Wild Rice Soup.
So My perfect recipe and remedy for a "cold" or cold day..... Is right below. That's right.. my future kids are going to be so lucky.
4 skinless boneless chicken breasts
6 boullion cubes - chicken
8 cups water
4 stalks celery, cut-up
4 carrots, cut-up
1 onion, cut-up
4 cloves garlic, mashed
1 bay leaf
3/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 lemon, squeezed into soup
Cover and cook in big heavy pot slowly for 2 hours.
Stir and taste once in awhile. It may need more water after 2 hours, dump in 1/2 cup raw rice or two handsful of egg noodles. Cover and cook another 30 min
Happy Cold/"Cold" day and enjoy
