desperately seeking soup

I feel icky. What started out as a scratchy throat last night has turned into a full blown cold. I’m curled up on the sofa with the computer while the Sparkletots are running amok from room to room making as big of a mess that they possibly can. And I’m too miserable to care. All I want is soup. In a mug..not a bowl, so I can slurp it in my spot on the sofa. If I was smart, I would have a frozen stockpile of my favorite tomato orange soup in the freezer…but I’m not. So while I wait for Mr. Sparklepants to come home from school with some take-out soup, I’ll dream of some of these soups I’ve found via Pinterest.

How about some split pea soup like my grandma used to make..

Even a cold soup sounds tasty..

Of course you can never go wrong with the traditional chicken soup..

Once I feel better, I’m cooking up a variety of soups to keep in the freezer. Just in case. What kind of foods do you like when you have a cold?

    Next time you’re down sick, make split pea in your crock pot!

    2 bags split peas
    1 bag shredded carrots
    Enough chicken stock to cover the above (3-4 cans or 5-6 cubes of boullion and water)
    1 onion, chopped (I dice the giant Costco bag and then use about a cup of frozen)
    2 big scoops of garlic (from the diced garlic jar)
    salt and pepper to taste… we use 10 twists of the salt and pepper grinders

    put it on low and walk away until it’s ready to eat in six hours.
