A Get Well Gift

 For the past several weeks we have been making lots of chicken soup and tea with honey. This week it's my turn to be sick. When it came time to make dinner, I thought, "Wouldn't it be nice if someone could make us some soup so I can rest?" That's when I came up with this post, a 'get well' gift for a neighbor, or friend too sick to venture out in the cold for supplies, or a family in need of rest.

 If you have a thermos, or empty jar with a lid, fill it with hot homemade chicken soup. You can make a little basket  with a good loaf of bread, tea, lemon and honey, and various forms of medicine you know they need/like. Since they'll be spending time resting, you might add magazines or a good movie or favorite book. Just make sure to let them know if these are on loan, and label anything you need returned :)

 Sometime soon I hope to share our favorite "go-to" recipe for chicken vegetable soup. It's an easy dinner for a cold winter's night.

Stay well!
