We’re sick. All of us. We’ve got probably the nastiest cold any of us have ever had. It sucks. So today, in honor of the occasion, I broke down and made some chicken noodle soup. Nothing fancy, just a single chicken breast seared with some canned mushrooms, garlic, onion, rosemary, and basil. Add in a smidge of white cooking wine to deglaze the pan, slice the chicken up, add about 3/4 of a can of drained carrots, add a carton of chicken broth (and an equal amount of water) and wait. I simmered it for about 45 minutes, then added my noodles. I warmed up some crusty rolls, and dinner was served.
In fact, in honor of Nick over at Macheesmo, I even took a photo of the soup.
I even pulled some frozen fruit out of the freezer (blueberries, strawberries, mango, pineapple, and peaches) and let them thaw before serving with some [generic] cool whip. Not too bad for being completely miserable, eh?
Well, methinks I have a bit of web surfing to do before I call it a night. I hope to be in bed as soon as I get my son down for the night. Wish me luck! 😛
