Mending with Soup
Tea. Soup. Sleep.
English Breakfast tea with a touch of local honey.
Recipe: Broken Soup
Chicken broth (I used two-three cups)
Chicken breast (just enough to swim around in the chicken broth)
Stale crusty bread (cut into bite size pieces)
Extra virgin olive oil
As the chicken broth is coming up to a gentle simmer, slice stale crusty bread into bite size pieces and set to toast. While bread is toasting, add cut up or torn chicken breast and parsley to broth. Season with salt to your liking. When toaster dings, drizzle (drop) beaten egg into gently simmering broth (giving a whirl or two or three with a fork to keep the egg from clumping). Let this simmer for about 30 seconds to a minute more. Pull pan from heat and transfer soup to a bowl (big enough for the whole shebang). Crack some black pepper (more is better) and top with toasted bread. Last, drizzle on a bit of extra virgin olive oil.
