Everyone around here is sick! My MIL has some type of flu, the Hubs and I have a cold. His a little worse than mine. Luckily the only one not sick is Jaelyn.

I was hoping a good sweat at the Y lastnight would help push it out of me, but I still have a stuffy nose and runny eyes. Ugh!
So lastnights, dinner was chicken and cabbage soup. I made a big pot, sent half to my MIL. I cooked it in the early afternoon, so we could have little bowls of it throughout the day.
The recipe is something like this:
2 boneless, skinless chicken breast
4 carrots
3 celery stalks
1 med onion
parsley (from my garden)
1/2 cabbage
EVOO to coat bottom of pot
6 cups redused sodium chicken stock
seasoning salt and pepper
Saute veggies in pot with EVOO & garlic,
add cut chicken breast and cook through
season and add chopped parsley
add chopped cabbage (I also had a handful of spinach close to going bad, so I threw it in)
Add chicken stock, bring to a boil
reduce heat and simmer until cabbage is tender
