    Default chicken soup for the sick

    Struggle out of bed
    Go to store for chicken that doesn't need to be defrosted
    Go to second store, since legs were way too overpriced at first store
    - buy roaster at $1.25 pound
    Go home; roast chicken, separate meat,
    Make stock with bones, onion, celery tops, fennel seed, garlic -
    whatever
    Strain stock, make soup with carrots, onions, potatoes and rice. Add
    some evaporated milk, chicken and parsley to finish.. Had a bowl.
    Wish my taste buds were working. Back to bed....e.

    It's been a few years since I tried it, but I think a whole frozen
    Cornish game hen simmered with celery scraps, onion roots and skins,
    bayleaf, peppercorns, and a chicken bouillon cube makes a pretty good
    base for a pot of soup, and you don't have to thaw it first. So you
    can buy them on sale and keep a few in the freezer for soup emergencies.

    Hope you're feeling better soon.

    Chicken soup with evaporated milk is enough to make a person sick.

    Tell you what'd be really sick, chicken soup that has the chicken
    heads in it.

    My friend and I went into a locals bar in Mazatlan, Mexico. We each
    ordered a beer, and guess what came with it? A bowl of chicken soup
    each, with chicken feet in it and a stack of tortillas. The soup was
    good, but I didn't touch the feet.
    And also, whenever we had a chicken paprikash on my Godfather's farm,
    they would stew one of their chickens that they raised. My Godfather
    and my uncle used to fight over who got to eat the head complete with
    comb.

    Someday I wanna make chicken soup with large tapioca pearls in it
    instead of rice and call it "chicken eye soup". I've been saying that
    for a couple of years and still haven't tried it yet...

    Bob,

    Or make a chicken soup using orzo pasta instead of noodles.

    You could call it "Chicken Or So" soup?

    Or not!

    Best,

    Andy

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

    The main problem is that the tapioca pearls degrade badly over time, so
    you'd have to eat it all quickly or you'd end up with a gummy mess. Still,
    it's a great idea. Might even work with Israeli couscous.

    Now you've gone and revealed that Israeli couscous is really a bunch
    of secret nano-cameras. There goes your security clearances. Wait,
    maybe I've been watching too many old episodes of Mission Impossible.

    And you ate it, too. Talk about "Bottom of the barrel" cuisine,
    frozen pizza if pretty low.

    It certainly wasn't very good because the crust was crappy. Still, it
    wasn't "'Bottom of the barrel' cuisine," and I wasn't pretending that
    it was anything but.
