Ever 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 onions1 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.

This sounds SO good!
Too bad you don’t live closer, I’ve got so much now!
not enough to share with your mommy, however……
Plenty of broth to share, just not the chicken! Dad already had his grabby hands in it before I strained all the broth out!
