The (other) cure for what ails you

Kamasouptra Chicken Noodle Soup

Apart from the ocean, the other cure for anything is homemade chicken (or turkey) soup.

Who supports using chicken soup as a curative? Well, besides me and most of the mothers and grandmothers in the history of the world, The Mayo Clinic sings its praises.  Chicken soup acts as an anti-inflammatory and it also speeds up the passage of mucous…good if you have a head cold.

Now, don’t get me wrong; you will still see me going to bed clutching my bottle of (generic or otherwise) NyQuil if I have a cough that’s keeping me (or other unsympathetic spouses who shall remain nameless) awake at night.

For today, I’d like to sing the praises of Kamasouptra’s Chicken Noodle Soup, which I had the great good fortune to eat this week. I was sold as soon as the counter person told me that they cook the noodles separately and add them into the soup when they serve it on a bowl by bowl basis so that “they don’t get overcooked”. I told him,  “That’s exactly how I make it at home!” (he didn’t seem impressed when I told him this though).

Got a cold? Get some soup!
