Keeping the Tradition Alive
Have you heard that you can cure the flu with chicken noodle soup?! So have I… since I was five. So far, it has proven entirely ineffective in producing any restorative results, but last week, after my husband caught the flu, my intrigue was piqued again. After hearing the news, an aging co-worker told me of this not-so-hidden gem, in a hushed, motherly tone. “You know what really works? I know it sounds crazy but try chicken noodle soup.” I believed her, and went home to scan my cupboards. To my surprise I had all of the ingredients to concoct an incredibly easy, tasty, and entirely homemade chicken noodle soup.
As a general disclaimer, it has sadly been a week since I debuted as June Cleaver, and my husband’s case of the flu is still lingering. He did, however, think it was delicious and experienced some pseudo-relief symptoms after eating it. If you would like to give this sickbed staple a try, you can find the recipe here . If you do not have marjoram (because I didn’t), you can shake in some “Italian Seasoning”, which I added along with crushed garlic.
