Iranian Chicken Soup
Today's favorite moments included . . .
. . . waking up around 6am feeling refreshed and rested for the first time in a while. Then I switched positions and began coughing my lungs out for the next half hour. Siiiiiigh (coughcoughcough!).
. . . Phillip taking the kids outside to play this evening so I could rest.
And another thing . . .
. . . my Iranian neighbor heard I was sick and offered to make me some chicken soup with turnips. I accepted with gratitude, and a little trepidation. Sometimes I find food from other cultures to be a welcome revelation, and other times I come away thinking, "Wow--I guess that's an acquired taste." In this case the soup was tasty and comforting. In fact, it was better than the chicken soup I made over the weekend.
