There are times when I wonder if I even have an immune system. I woke up this morning and felt like the Soviet Army had camped out in my throat.
Luckily, I still have some of this in my fridge:

I’m sorry your not feeling well. I’ll bet going from Rhinebeck in the chilly Hudson Valley back to warm Texas knocked you for a loop. Add yucky airplane air to that and I’m surprised those Soviet troops aren’t re-enacting the invasion of Afghanistan.
Sorry to hear you’re under the weather. Try a clove of raw garlic with some salsa or peanut butter. Put it on a spoon together. Shove it into your mouth and chew like mad. Wash it down with OJ and eat some crackers or chips or something. Do it at night when you feel threatened with or if you get sick before you can act.
2 ribs celery
1 medium white onion
1 whole chicken
2 quarts water
salt and pepper to taste
1 packet matzoh ball mix
2 eggs (for matzoh balls)
Cut the chicken into parts. Chop the carrots, celery and onion. Add
everything except eggs and matzoh ball mix to a 4 quart soup pot and bring to a boil, then reduce heat
and simmer for 3-4 hours. Add more liquid as necessary.
Remove from heat and allow to cool. Remove all solids from the soup
pot and press against cheese cloth to squeeze out any remaining
liquid. Discard solids. Filter broth through double layer of cheese
cloth and put uncovered in the refridgerator overnight.
Skim fat from broth and use it instead of vegetable oil to make matzoh
balls as per the package directions. Chop more celery and carrots
(and any other desired vegetables) and add to broth. Simmer for half
an hour. Make matoh balls as per package directions and add to soup.
The Soviet Army thing makes me think of my band teacher in high school- when he wanted us to play something very serious he had us say “Bolsheviks!” out loud, in a deep voice to get us in the mood.
Glad to know those are matzoh balls because I totally thought they were onions.
Take care and feel better soon!
