What to do When You Are Sick...
It has been a busy few weeks! Figuring out how to maneuver the Holidays with family, work stress, new job stress, moving (or trying to plan move) stress...it just gets your immune system down. Well, Adam came up with a couple good soup ideas for the occasion. Turkey noodle soup and cream of ham and potato soup. We'll show you how we did it with a few pictures!
For the turkey noodle soup we used leftover turkey from Thanksgiving, celery, carrots, green onion, garlic, fennel, chicken stock and a bit of salt. Cooked in the crock on high for about 5 hours. I added cooked noodles last with some market mix pepper seasoning at the end. Market mix pepper seasoning is the combination of peppers picked, not sold and dehydrated after Saturday markets we had during the summer. Those random mixes are fantastic!
The cream of ham and potato soup was a bit more than just ham and potato. We added white onion, carrot, celery, potato, parsnip, parsley, garlic, chicken stock and ham to the crock pot. We actually let this one sit all day on low heat because the root vegetables are pretty firm. The last couple hours we added heavy cream, a small amount mixed with flour to help thicken and more of our market mix! Initially it was perfect...but with the added cream the heat was cut down so Adam ended up added a few more dashes :)
In a short blurb, that is the rundown of what people eat in the Gordon household when we are sick...wholesome foods and hot peppers. Now I am off to a hot shower to open my congested airways and planning another spicy meal to kick this virus. Stay Spicy!
