The flu is hitting a lot of people hard right now. On the local news here in Chicago, we’ve been told that area hospital emergency rooms are swamped with people being treated for the flu- heavy coughing and sneezing that they just can’t shake off without medical attention. And flu season hasn’t even officially begun. In our house, we’ve been eating chicken soup to strengthen our immune system and give ourselves a fighting chance against whatever is out there.
Like most people, I grew up eating chicken noodle soup as a get-well food. To this day, whenever I eat it, it reminds me of the times when I was completely sick and fighting off something that chicken soup seemed to knock right out of the park, as long as I kept eating it, which was usually the only thing I could stomach.
