Chicken Soup ... for One Deep Breath

river in autumn

The brothers arrive today from New England for Thanksgiving. last week I cooked up a pot of chicken soup for anyone who shows signs of cold or flu while they're here .... my grandmother's recipe .... so delicious and warming. It's filled with carrots, onions, parsnips, brown rice and tender chicken. We'll have it for dinner tonight with crunchy sour dough and a big tossed salad. Perfect for a chilly autumn evening!!

for soothing scratchy throats

Look for more haiku here describing sensory pleasures!

Wonderful photo, poem and the story of your chicken soup! Sounds delicious - and with sour dough - my favourite. Sigh. Makes me homesick for San Francisco.

Soup and sourdough bread! My mouth is watering! Great poem.

Wonderful sensory haiku :)

I could use some of that soup... does it work on broken hearts? I'm getting a good dose of mom's miracle pot roast and turkey this week, so I'll be fine.

Happy Thanksgiving!
