Chicken Soup for the Stomach

...is, chicken soup. And stomachs love it!

Why all this talk about how to get chicken soup into your soul? That's just silly, since of course you'd have to convert the soup to energy and send it to a different dimension of reality. And if we could do that, would soup be the first thing we send? No. Chances are rich people will line up for the way to really "take it with them."

But chicken soup for the stomach, the long overlooked and super obvious use for chicken soup, shouldn't be under-rated. It warms, it fills, it tastes good, and (why isn't this on the label?) it stocks you up with salts which are desperately needed after a good session of sickness.

In the immortal words of some great person at some past time," I like soup."

Yummy, yummy, yummy I've got soup in my tummy.

I have been craving homemade chicken soup. I've been dreaming about homemade noodles. Yum. Maybe this weekend.

If you're not better by then, stop by here. Vegas isn't too far off your regular path, right?

I am not a soup kinda girl, but after being sick in your tummy for days...there is nothing like that first hot bowl of water with bits swimming in it.
You sound better, I am glad!

Quilly, soup in the desert? What's next, soup for dessert?

Minka, I like soup. But I have no respect for the dry stuff in the packages (like I had yesterday) so I think that was my first bowl of "homemade" soup in years.
