Got Chicken Soup…

Girl with flue

How does this happen?

I eat sensibly, exercise daily, take 10 different vitamins, use hand sanitizer as much as WASP’s slap down mayo on their white bread sandwiches and wash my hands incessantly. How the heck did I get so sick?

I have so much to do and I am on my back which under normal circumstances isn’t all bad, but I cannot move, my bones ache, my head is exploding, my nose is dripping and my cough has my doggie running for cover.

Is Ebola next? I need to encase myself in bubble wrap and step away from handshakes, banisters, spin bikes, door handles and human beings. What does that leave?


Getting out of bed is as exhausting as the full body workout class at Equinox. I am panting from just going to the bathroom.


I want my mommy and her homemade chicken soup.

HELP ME! I have fallen into a heap of dirty tissues and I can’t get up…

                                            Cure All Chicken Soup Recipe

  • 1 soup chicken or poulet. Kosher chicken is best. Poulet sold at butcher shop or buy a roaster from the market.
  • 3 celery stalks, chopped
  • 5 carrots peeled and sliced
  • 1 large whole sweet onion
  • 1 green pepper, cut in half and seeded
  • 1/4 bunch of flat parsley
  • kosher salt and fresh ground pepper to taste

Place chicken in pot and cover with water. Bring to boil and add vegetables. Cook on medium heat until chicken is tender. Cook for a minimum of 1 hour. Pierce with fork to test tenderness. When chicken is tender, skim fat off the top of soup. Remove all veggies except carrots. Makes about 10 servings. Cook noodles or rice separately and add to each bowl of soup. Cut up chicken meat and add to soup.

Enjoy and be healthy!
