Chicken Soup for the Sick

Wow! I just realized it has been awhile since I posted anything on the blog. Work and life has been busy - and once again sick!

Pete and I caught colds from his two little girls a couple of weeks ago and it has been a battle to get better. My immune system is taking a VERY long time to fully recover from the whooping cough that I got back in August. I was fully recovered from whooping cough and a couple of rounds of bronchitis by the end of December. It seems that when I catch a small cold, it turns into so much more because my lungs are weak from the whooping cough. I'm just ready for spring and people all around me to be healthy :)

What is the one thing we all want when we're sick? Chicken Soup!

Lindsay's Quick Chicken Noodle Soup
- 1 TBS Olive Oil
- 1/2 onion, chopped
- 1/2 carrot, chopped
- 1 stalk celery, chopped
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 4 cups chicken broth (or 2 cups broth and 2 cups water)
- About 2 cups diced leftover chicken
- Handful or two of egg noodles

Heat olive oil in pan. Saute onion, carrot and celery until soft. Stir in garlic and saute another minute or two. Pour in the stock and chicken. Bring to a boil. Turn back down to medium for 10 minutes. Add egg noodles and cook until soft. Season to taste - remember that stock has a lot of salt! Enjoy!
