On Wednesday, I was soooo sick that I had to leave work early. That's usually a big no-no with me. When I'm sick, I tend ignore it and go to work anyway. It's not that I'm a workaholic, more like a perfectionist. I can't stand to let anything keep me down. But when your co-workers are like, "go home before you make us all sick," what's a girl to do? Make faux chicken noodle soup, that's what.
I ended up taking my work with me to do on my iMAC at home. Then I began plotting ways to get some no-chicken noodle soup into my belly. You can take all the medicine in the world, but fake chicken soup is the secret cure. At first, I thought I'd try and convince someone to pick me up a can of Amy's Organic No-Chicken Noodle. But then I remembered seeing a recipe in my new "Skinny Bitch in the Kitch" cookbook.
Though I felt like crap, it only took a few minutes to whip up the "Chicken" Noodle Soup recipe. I used the Morningstar Farms faux chicken strips, whole wheat pasta, mushrooms, carrots, onion, and veggie broth and it made a big 'ol batch. I've been re-heating it for lunches over the past few days, and I do believe it's making me better (that combined with lots of green tea, raw garlic, and Vitamin C Zicam tablets).
