Kitchen Porn: Chicken Soup for the Sick Edition

Doesn't this look like the kind of kitchen you want to make chicken soup in!? via I Want That Kitchen

So last week I took a poultry butchering class at Hill’s Kitchen. I’m a firm believer in fate. My life is also a string of ironic turns and twists in which I throw ingredients away thinking I don’t need them or they’ve passed their prime…and then need them not even a day later. Yeah.

I’m sick. I have the early stages of whatever that bronchitis/chest congestion thing that’s going around is.

So you know, when one is sick they generally think, “Wouldn’t it be nice if I had some, say, chicken soup?!” Well. That would be SO possible if I had, after my poultry butchering class, actually MADE the damn chicken stock I had planned to make. Even better, if instead of not making it maybe I wrapped and froze all the bits that would make the stock. Oh but no. I tossed the bag of stock bits. Two days ago.

Then, there was no hint of the cough now plaguing me that feels like someone took a zester to my bronchial tubes. Nor the scratch of a sore throat that now burns.

So all this is to say, who’s coming over and making me some soup!? What do you like to eat when you’re sick?

  1. Lentil soup or chicken soup! And be sure to take your meds, feel better! I just got over that gross sickness and it took a while :( Get some rest

  2. Whenever I have the symptoms you’re describing, I make up a lemon toddy.
    Juice from 1 lemon, including pulp. About 1/4 cup honey. 1 stick of cinnamon and a generous dash of cayenne pepper. Put all the ingredients together in a large mug. Then add very hot water (NOT boiling), about 8-10 oz. Let the ingredients steep for about a minute or two (you can also zap it in a microwave for about a minute or so if that’s easier). Sip the drink slowly. The honey is soothing and the cayenne will open everything up so you can breath better. Hope you feel better.
