Get-Well Soup

Well I woke up today really, really sick. I think it is some version of the flu, since I got the flu shot* last week and started feeling bad after that. I am trying to count my blessings and do what I can to get healthy! I made myself some get-well soup after I rose from my sleep coma. Here’s the coolest part: I went outside and harvested 4 turnips from my garden to add to the soup. Yup. And it was 7 degrees out only 3 nights ago. I love my little makeshift old window cold-frame. The whole fall garden thing has been really easy- I neglect it all the time and it just sits there and grows really, really slowly. I added 4 little turnips (Shogoin variety, really mild and small) and some of the smaller turnip greens to the chicken stock, veggies, noodles, and leftover chicken. And that soup was goooood.

  1. Did anything else “turn up” while you were out there digging?
    That is so cool that you have your own fresh root vegetables.
    I am jealous.

  2. I hope you are feeling better soon! Maybe Abi can feed you soup like she gives herself hot chocolate:)

  3. Next time you are sick you can try the remedy that cured Chris when he was little. 2 glasses of cold duck. Nothing like getting a kid drunk to make them forget that they are sick….LOL
