I spent the day home sick sitting in my recliner, reading, and watching episodes on Buffy and Angel. If I wasn't sick it would be the perfect day. I know the old saying "feed a fever, starve a cold," and I have been running a low grade fever, but my appetite has been on the side of ridiculous today. I have a massive sweet tooth that is normally non-existent, and I just keep eating. The strange thing about all my eating today is that my throat is terribly sore, but it doesn't seem to hurt when I'm eating. Today I've had leftover corned beef, cabbage, parsley buttered potatoes, fruit leather, a brownie, toast with cinnamon and sugar, crackers and cheese, and finally, chicken noodle soup.
Luckily, I had meant to make Chicken Noodle Soup even before I got sick. I had leftover chicken and broth from the chicken tacos on Saturday night. This soup comes together very quickly and easily (even if you're sick).
I like a lot of vegetable in my soup, so I chopped and cooked 1/2 an onion, 4 celery stalks, and 6 carrots.
