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.
