Flu season


I hope you are all staying well. Flu season arrived early in Kentucky. I got my flu shot in October and so far so good. But I had an upper respiratory infection before Thanksgiving that went into bronchitis, and I still can't shake this cough.

When I first get the sniffles I start taking vitamin C and crave chicken noodle soup.

I want to share a chicken noodle soup recipe with you.

Start with 3 quarts of chicken broth. (Store bought is fine if you don't want to start from scratch.)

If you boiled your chicken cut it up to add to broth later, or you can add cooked chicken from the store and cut it up.

Next take:
2 cups sliced carrots
2 cups sliced celery
2 1/2 cups uncooked egg noodles
1 cup sliced mushrooms (I love them but my guys won't touch them.)
3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves
2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary leaves

Add carrots and celery to chicken broth and bring to a boil.
Next add egg noodles and cook according to directions on package.
When they are ready you can add mushrooms, rosemary and chicken.
Cook a few more minutes and enjoy.

Do you have a favorite food you enjoy when you feel a cold coming on?
