A good laugh and a long sleep are the best cures in the doctor’s book. ~Irish Proverb

when_b5bf5b_2684102Ever since that round of pneumonia back in July, I’ve been teetering on the edge of being sick again. I get a few good nights sleep and feel better for a bit. Then I fall behind again and start to cough more and blah blah blah.

I’ve come down with a cold again, and while a good, long night’s sleep has done wonders for how I feel, I’m still congested. So rather than do any cooking this week, I made myself a large pot of chicken stock. With the amount of delicious, healthy things I added, I should be feeling tops again in no time.


1 whole chicken
2 large onionssoup1 bunch of celery
3 large carrots
1 bunch of Italian Kale
1 2″ section of ginger
1 whole head of garlic, cut in half
A bundle of fresh Rosemary, Thyme, Sage and a bay leaf.
2 TBS of apple cider vinegar.
Fill to cover with water.

Salt & pepper to taste as well as some parsley toward the end.

I let it simmer for about 2.5 hours. And Yum.

Now I have more chicken stock than I know what to do with.
