So, there I was, ready to make this great leftover Thanksgiving Turkey Pot Pie when I started feeling like death warmed up. It was not pretty, y’all. Not pretty at all. Then, the next day came….
Get your flu shots. That’s all I can say here. ☹
After considering that this flu was going to be the one that killed me, I summoned my 30 minutes of energy and made this chicken soup. If I was going out, it was going to be on a full stomach!! It ended up being exactly what I needed. Well, that and the 2-hour nap I took after eating it. But hey, sleep away the sickness and all that.
This chicken soup is perfect for that much needed feed the flu meal or a quick ‘it’s cold outside’ comfort food.
GET. YOUR. FLU. SHOTS!
Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.
GOOD FOOD. GOOD FRIENDS. GOOD TIMES.
