Chicken soup

Chicken soup is top of my  list when it comes to foods that nourish my soul. No other food gets even close to this number one spot.

The effect of this warm golden liquid easing its way through my body is almost instantaneous.

I grew up being nourished by my mama’s delicious homemade chicken soup. I watched her prepare it. The smell of the soup cooking was, and still is, an instant pick me up. I loved to eat it all year round and I particularly craved it when I was sick (I still do!).

When I left home I made chicken soup for my own family exactly as I had watched my mother do it for all those years. My big disappointment was that my soup never tasted as good as my mamas.

Imagine my delight when my husband and I discovered a local Asian restaurant that served the most divine homemade tasting chicken soup. It is a favourite haunt of ours. I love their chicken noodle soup. Lynsey loves their won ton soup. We are now known at the restaurant. When we arrive the staff just check with us if we want the usual. We always do. Not only do I get to spend time in the day with my soul mate, I also get to nourish my being with the best soul food ever. What could be more perfect than that?
