Soup

Since Thursday I've been getting that scratchy feeling in my throat like I'm about to get sick and I have been combating it with everything I got!
I've has PLENTY of greens and citrus. I've even picked up some horrible tasting Airborne. The sickness has not quite gone away yet thus today I'm pulling out the BIG GUNS.

SOUP



I was fortunate enough to receive Nava Atlas' new book a couple of weeks ago (Thank you Nava!). As I customarily do, I've been reading it- not using it just yet. Today is the day that I will start to cook! Not sure which recipe I fancy but that'll be the surprise of the next post :)

Wish me luck on this cooking adventure!

PS- I just want to point out that I don't just eat soup when I'm sick. I happen to crave it like a mad woman then though:)

Oh, I hope you feel better soon! Soup will feel excellent on your throat--I can't stay away from it when I'm sick! Take care of yourself!

Hey Teddy!

I'm sorry you're sick - I think all the bloggers have got the croup - me included. I actually had to go to the doctor and get the antibiotics - eck.

I received Nava's books as well! I've got plans to cook the curried red lentil soup tomorrow. I want something spicy and it calls for sweet potatoes - my favorite. I'm excited to see what you choose.

Again - I hope you get better. Happy cooking!

i just received my copy 2 days ago! the first recipe I tried was the baked onion soup. it was good but i felt the need to alter it quite a bit. i love the set-up of the book (by season) and the section of quick breads at the back. fabulous! can't wait to see what you try!

I hope you are feeling better. Garlic and Ginger are also excellent and great immune boosters.
