My mom woke Saturday morning with a nasty toothache. After hemming and hawing about it for a couple hours, I called a friend and asked her to take my mom to the Urgent Care at the hospital. They returned a couple hours later with antibiotics and instructions to see her dentist in two weeks. Ever since then, Mom's been feeling under the weather. Pain and infection will do that to you, right?
She woke this morning feeling blah again so I decided to make my special cure: Everything-But-The-Kitchen-Sink Chicken Soup. Yum!
So, what's in Everything-But-The-Kitchen-Sink Chicken Soup? Well, the name says it all. I make this when I need to clean out the fridge and use up some of the more "interesting looking" veggies. Today's soup includes onions, garlic, celery, carrots, squash, and cabbage, along with chicken meat and broth.
UPDATE ON ME: There's a rumor that I might get my cast off tomorrow. Do me a favor and think good thoughts for me - I want...no, I NEED this damn thing off. I miss walking. I miss cooking without having to stand on one foot. I took a spill while cooking last week - I just sort of sat down on the floor - and ever since then, I've been wary about doing too much. I mean, my balance isn't great on my best days. LOL
