tonight, i was supposed to make tortilla crusted tilapia and a southwestern salad. but, pk was sick! so i made my sunday night meal early: chicken noodle soup. i wasn't as prepared as i would have been on sunday, but it all came together!
as soon as i got home from work, i filled a pot up with water and added my defrosted chicken breast (just two of them). next, i diced up my veggies: carrots, celery, italian squash, mushrooms, and onions. i added a bunch of spices including cayenne pepper (i like things spicey!), cumin, garlic, paprika, pepper, and salt. i let this simmer and boil for about 40 minutes. then i added whatever pasta i could find: fusilli and macroni. i let the pasta cook and simmer in the pasta for another 15 minutes.
while the soup was simmering, i made grilled cheese with tomato:[caption id="attachment_1027" align="aligncenter" width="300" caption="a hodge podge chicken noodle soup"][/caption]
hopefully this cured my sick boyfriend! also, i have tons of leftover soup! i put half of it in a huge container and put it in the freezer. i made 3 portions for the fridge (two hefty ones for the sicky).
i picked up some wellness formula, orange juice, cold medicine, kleenex, and anti-bacterial hand sanitizer. hopefully i don't get sick. :)
