A little over two weeks ago, I came down with what I thought was the worlds worst flu - temps ranging from 98 to 104 in a matter of 30 minutes, hot sweats, cold sweats, warm sweats, you name 'em sweats, horrible body aches, and a cough that would rival Walter Whites from the first few episodes of Breaking Bad. Yeah. Not. Cool. Not cool at all. Especially because I found out that it wasn't the flu at all - but full blown, knock your winter socks off, pneumonia. Brute.
In light of my inability to cook and/or blog, or do much of anything for the past two weeks, I thought it would be a fun idea to highlight some soul satisfying soups that one might be craving with the flu, or...pneumonia. Also, if you have left over turkey, just swap out the chicken for your leftovers from Thanksgiving! Ta daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa. Here we go now.
1. Buffalo Chicken Soup
2. Chicken Pot Pie Soup
3. Chicken Sausage, Kale, and Cannellini Bean Soup
4. Thai Chicken Soup
5. Chicken Tortilla Soup
Never underestimate the power of a homemade soup. So the next time your significant other or friend is feeling less than their normal fantastic selves, whip them up a batch of one of these soups and leave some on their doorstep or nightstand, depending on if they'll let you see them in their current state.
They'll thank you.
Stay hungry (and healthy)!
