I'm sick. :(
Friday night he was REALLY sick and to be honest I assumed that he had a little too much to drink at the Ugly Sweater party. Turns out he had actually picked up some kind of a bug and wasn't any better yesterday. Of course he stayed home from the family party and got some rest on the couch. Now he's all better. I on the other hand am not. Last night the bug hit me, and so now I'm recovering but still not in tip-top shape. I was really, really, really bummed because my cousins shared their Colts tickets with me for today but it was clear this morning that there's no way I was going to make it. :(
Around lunch though I was feeling a bit better and I was hungry so I decided to make myself some soup. Soup makes everything better.
Just what the doctor ordered.
1 T Olive Oil
1 small onion - chopped
1 celery stick - chopped
1 small potato - chopped
1/2 C pre-sliced mushrooms
1/2 C Frozen Carrots (approximately)
1/2 C Frozen Green Beans (approximately)
1/2 C White Beans
2 Kale leaves - destemmed & cut to bit size pieces
1 small Zucchini - peeled and cut into half-circles
Handful of Orzo
Saute the onion, celery, potato & mushrooms in the olive oil.
Add the carrots, green beans, white beans & broth & bring to simmer.
Continue to add the rest of your ingredients - Kale, Zucchini & Orzo - and let simmer until you're ready to eat.
Ahhh, just what I needed!
And if any of my family are reading this then know that I'm praying I didn't accidentally spread any of these germs yesterday. If so I'm REALLY sorry and just try and remember how much you love me. :)
