Comfort Food

I'm extremely under the weather.  Sore throat, stuffy head, headache, runny nose, coughing, the whole nine yards, I am SICK....  When I feel this crappy, the only thing that makes me feel better is a cup of hot tea and comfort food.  Comfort food growing up was ramen noodles soup with boiled eggs, veggies and some kind of protein.  Thank goodness we live near an Asian Market.  This afternoon, I bought ingredients from the market to make soup.  I picked up some packaged udon noodles instead of ramen, shitake mushrooms and roasted peking duck.  I cooked the udon noodles in chicken broth, added the shitake mushrooms, then put on top a boiled egg and the roasted peking duck.  This didn't cure my cold, but made me feel so much better!

  5. That sure looks good! I think I've only cooked udon noodles once or twice before. My symptoms didn't all come at once or stay the whole time. My sore throat only lasted a couple days.

    Keep taking good care of yourself!
