It’s been a rough week so far for me. Andrew started the sickness chain, which I decided I’d stay as far away from as possible, because I didn’t want Ethan getting sick either – so Daddy caught what Andrew had… Its some sort of flu though, with all the fun stuff attached. We’re still working on the aftermath.
So my Sunday “off” was really quite boring because we couldn’t go anywhere and I didn’t want to leave two sick puking boys home to fend for themselves, so I made chicken noodle soup and spent some time on the computer :Þ
This is the yummiest, but easiest chicken noodle soup ever 🙂 I took a whole chicken (~4lbs?) covered it in water, peeled whole carrots, and washed celery. stick it all in the pot along with about 15 or so chicken bullion cubes and boil for a good 3 hours or so, until the chicken falls off the bone. Cook Noodles; separate all things, de-bone and shred the chicken, cut veggies and serve 🙂
I like to store the noodles separate from the rest of the soup so they don’t get soggy.
In other roughness, its been tough nursing these last few days – I’m really almost ready to give up. I’m sore and Raw. Ethan latches and then yanks off continuously and he’s frustrated and I get frustrated -not to mention he’s been biting too – and by the end of the night i’m so sore I just give him a bottle with formula which he is gladly accepting. I think one more day like this and i’m done. I hate to say I’m giving in – but Seriously. its weighing hard on my patience and it HURTS. 🙁
Just a picture to end off on a higher note 🙂 I caught Andrew trying to feed his truck some water 🙂 So cute!
