Feeling Crummy

Sick with the yucky runny nose, head throbbin’ and cough and sneezy stuff! I hate feeling this way. But my husband always says, “It’s good to get sick every once in a while so you can really appreciate what it’s like to feel normal.” Well, I can’t wait to feel normal again! My turn has been a comin’ too. My guys have all been suffering for the last couple of weeks. I thought I was going to skim by sick-free. Nope, not the case.

When we all get to feeling this way, I always make spinach noodle soup with a very garlicky broth. The boys love it and always slurp it all up.

Here’s the recipe for the yummy garlicky broth. It’s a great way to jazz up store bought veggie broth.

6 cups vegetable broth
1 tbsp olive oil
1 head of garlic, peeled and slightly crushed
1 bay leaf
1/2 tsp ground sage
1/2 tsp ground thyme
salt to taste

Combine everything in large pot and bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 30 mintues. Strain to get rid of the lg garlic pieces and bay leaf. Then add any veggies, noodles you like and simmer until the additions are cooked. I always add a handfull of TVP, spinach noodles and fresh baby spinach. If you are adding fresh spinach, add it the last few minutes.

Hope everyone is sniffle free!

    I hope you feel better! My daughter was sick last week, then my son. He is getting over it, now my husband is sick. I am waiting for it too. I feel run-down, but not sick yet.

    I ended up deleting my Meme. I just always feel weird about having really personal information floating out on the internet. But, I did not want to list superficial things like “I like red.” LOL

    Get well soon!

    Oh, drink up! I hope it’s a quick cold, and that you’ll be feeling better by tomorrow. That soup looks so good, I hope you made a gigantic pot.

    I totally forgot about the five things thing, but I’ll start thinking about it…

    Take care of yourself!
