“Feel Better” in a Bowl…

I’m at home sick from work and class today with a very upset stomach. Times like these make me want to seek out some chicken soup… *any* chicken soup.

Right now, I have to go for the stuff in a can , but even Progresso doesn’t quite stand up to lugaw (a Filipino porridge cooked in meat broth) or even Dan’s matzoh ball soup… Even though there’s more food in that mazoh-ball soup than in the can of Progresso, the mazoh-ball soup’s soft chicken and veggies are *very* upset-tummy friendly.

Mazoh Ball Soup

For that matter, so are the matzoh balls…

For now, I’m just going to have to keep dreaming, resting, and self-hydrating…

PS – Sorry, no written-out recipe for this one. Dan says he kind of does Rachael Ray-esque eyeballing when cooking it (as I see others just rolling their eyes).

3 pounds of baby carrots are used as well as some celery and onion (essentially a mirepoix). Chicken and dill round out the soup. The matzoh balls are created using the instructions on a packaged mix.
