Time for Soup

I love homemade soup. It really warms you up and is so good for you too. Tonight I broke out a batch of the frozen goodness and heated it for my dinner. Only problem is that with the flu, I can't taste the soup. Oh well, at least I'll be eating lite and healthy.

Dammit woman! Before I even got a chance to read the discussion I started hearing "No soup for you!" in my head.

Oh, I wish you could taste that homemade soup. At least you reap the benefits of some food that just may help you feel better a bit sooner.

I have a enough left over to have for lunch tomorrow. But I doubt I'll be able to taste it. My sinuses are so plugged that I can barely breathe!

My grandmother always had a kettle of home made soup on the back of the wood burning stove. A continuation of the old Depression days I think. Save a bowl and freeze it. Then when you are over the dreaded flu you can have it and enjoy its flavor.

I have several containers in the freezer. One will be saved for a later date.

@celticeagle I am thinking I should have hubby stop at the store and bring home some Progresso Chicken Noodle Soup so I can save the good stuff for later!

Hopefully it will have warmed your belly. It's so cold here that soup would have been welcome.

My husband decided not to eat his, so you are welcome to his bowl.

I was lazy tonight, I wasn't hungry because we ate a big lunch out at a fancy place when we were out shopping. So I opened a can of tomato soup for my hubby and made him a bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich on toast. Your soup sounds delicious.

I made my husband an egg, bacon, and cheese sandwich. Well, actually I made him 2, because he has a big appetite at dinner time. He didn't touch his soup so I put it back for me to have today.

I hate when I can't taste, that's the worst! I hope the soup helps though and you start feeling better really soon.

Soup is probably the best choice for your cold even if you can't really taste it. Hope you feel better soon

The nurse practitioner said the Tamiflu would help lessen the symptoms. Hoping to be back to work by Monday.

Whether you can taste it or not, it should make you feel better. I was a week into the flu before I felt well enough to make any soup. The canned stuff I had was dreadful. Get well soon.

I keep thinking I should have the hubby buy some canned soup for me. Progresso is okay, and probably the best that I can buy premade. But, even still, it doesn't compare with homemade.

@ElusiveButterfly since making my own soup I have realised that readymade is expensive and nowhere as nutricious.

@ElusiveButterfly Don't worry, I know exactly what you are feeling. I've got a full-blown case of the flu too, and I'm just praying I feel good enough to go to work on Monday morning. I can't afford to miss any days of work right now.

@moffittjc I can't afford to miss any more time either. But, I can't work if my butt is dragging and my clients would worry that they could catch it and probably cancel the visit.

Sorry you have the flu!!!! The soup should help with congestion, keep you hydrated, and stem hunger. You poor thing! Get well soon.

I just had toast with honey. Bland foods seem to keep my tummy from getting queasy. I am also sipping seltzer and water to keep hydrated. Couldn't finish my tea this morning.

@DianneN I think that I'll probably head back to bed before too long. I have a headache, sinuses are plugged, and I am so achy. Time for more acetaminophen.

I'm with you, homemade soup is the best. That soup should help you get over your flu quicker and have you up and about in no time. I hope you do feel better soon.

I actually feel worse today. Yesterday it came on me quite fast. But, today it is lingering and bogging me down. Soup is on the menu for tonight's dinner.

@ElusiveButterfly the flu has a way of progressing like that. I hope you are up and about and feeling great before long. Until then, just rest and recuperate.

@HazySue I am home early again. Thankfully my last client didn't take that long to get their housework done. I need to sit back and breathe.

I love vegetable soup. Even my turkey, chicken, or beef soups have more vegetables in them than meat.

@ElusiveButterfly We do not add meat to the vegetable soup, sometimes rice or barely.

@LadyDuck I no longer add rice, noodles, or any starch to my soups, unless my husband wants it. I pick out the noodles.
