Seriously Medicinal Soup
Unfortunately, I got sick this holiday- Sore throat, running nose, and a cough. Terrible! I hate being sick! I have two kids and a practice to run. I cannot be sick! But, yesterday I made a soup with the intention to get well. I put everything I could think of (that I had on hand) to help my immune system and get me feeling well again. My family had it for dinner (my son has a cold also, husband is healthy but the soup is good prevention! And my daughter is thankfully healthy due to acquired antibodies through nursing!). I woke this morning feeling 80% better and after having another bowl for lunch I no longer had a runny nose or sore throat. Needless to say, I’m loving this soup!

1.) Peel and crush all garlic cloves.
2.) Saute garlic in a soup pot with 2 Tbsp butter for 2 minutes, then add 6 cups of chicken broth. Bring to a boil and reduce to low heat. Cook for 30 minutes.
