If you are sick with a cold or flu; do you prefer broth-based soups like chicken-noodle or vegetable, or heftier comfort food such as chili or stews?
Usually prefer cream soups or chowders, but that's true all the time, not just when I'm sick.
Even if I have just chicken noodle soup I want it to look more like a bowl of egg noodles and vegetables than soup.
When I am sick I have to take what I am given.
When I'm sick is pretty much the only time I have a taste for soup. Either Campbell's Chicken Noodle as icechris mentioned, or when I start to feel a little better, tomato soup with a tunafish sandwich on toast.
Campbell's chicken noodle soup secretly contains the cure for the common cold. And pretty much any other illness for that mattet
Agreed! It's like a magic potion.
I make home made soups all the time. For something so 'simple', it sure is a lot of work!
Except, you know, miso.
Two girls are gone to Georgia for the week for spring break with my mom.
In the meantime; the wife, little one & I all have contracted some kind of nasty little stomach bug that my oldest daughter had last week.
Wife made an amazing chicken noodle, lentil & light-veggie concoction that's so yummy ????
"Stuff a cold; starve a fever" is the old adage, but I'm happier with lighter fare with both of them. Also I find miso soup, plain or with any combination of fresh ginger, scallions & garlic to be the best.
Yeah, proper miso soup is goooood!
I actually hate most soups. Too...soupy.
You like chili or stew?
Sometimes chili is OK, but I'm really picky about it. Is it a soup if it doesn't have any broth? I do like the onion soup at Benihana, though.
I love brothy soups. And especially when I'm sick. When I had the flu right after Christmas that's about all I ate for days.
actually, I take that back. if I make a banana cream pie and it doesn't set for some reason, that's basically soup, and you better believe I'll eat that.
