GO AHEAD, SALIVATE

When I wasn't feeling well  I didn't want to eat anything. Everything I smelled or saw made me gag. I wanted soup! I didn't want the salty very little chicken Campbell's soup.

If you ask anyone who knows me very well, they will tell you I absolutely hate broth by itself.  I guess all the times when I was in the hospital and they gave me  brown salty beef broth has traumatized me. I remember after surgeries and bouts of illnesses like dehydration, pneumonia, stomach viruses etc in order to have solid food, the nurses and mom insisted I had to drink the nasty salty broth. As I became older and wiser, I learned to suck it up (literally) through a straw.  

That's a helpful tip for you.  If you ever come across something liquid that you absolute hate the taste and have to drink it that's what you need to do. Use a straw! Most of it goes down your throat quickly with less taste.

Anyway, I decided to cook my first ever chicken noodle soup. It was delicious and helped calm my tummy.

I used a carton of Swanson chicken broth, egg noodles, celery, carrots and chopped chicken breast.  It was so good and calmed my stomach!

Next time I will make a double batch so I can freeze.



As you can tell picture taking is not my strong suit. It was steaming.


Until next time...

  1. My mother doesn't like milk, so she said when she was pregnant, she drank milk through a straw stuck in the back of her throat so she wouldn't have to taste it. I appreciate that she did that to make us healthier babies.

    I like soups and yours sound good.

    1. Your mom is one smart woman! It makes me feel less crazy now that I know someone else does this. Most of the time when I tell someone they just look at me like I'm crazy.

  2. There's just nothing better than homemade chicken soup. It cures everything and smells so good when it's cooking. I do make a great soup and I just made my first ever turkey soup with all the leftover meat on the Thanksgiving turkey. I did it a little differently than I do with chicken soup so wasn't sure how it would turn out. It was fantastic! Love love love soup!

    1. I am glad your turkey soup was good! After cooking my soup, I probably won't ever go back to canned!
