Comfort Food

I just returned from having out patient surgery (nothing serious) and thought I'd better post this blog before the lidocaine wears off. Every time we passed fast food coming home, Richard asked if I wanted him to stop. I wasn't interested. But when we got home and I looked at all the leftovers I suddenly knew what I wanted...Katie's new Chicken Noodle Soup. We had the baked chicken from my experiment with Miracle Whip and Ritz crackers, enough celery and the most important ingredient, one can of vegetable broth. I sauted' the onion and celery, opened the cans of broth, all while keeping my left arm close to my side. Now, it's simmering while the carrots get tender. Noodles will be added in a few minutes. I can smell it already.
I know I'll be thinking about the hot soup every time I apply the ice pack!
