Feel Better Vegetable Soup!

Misery loves company so they say and I guess that is why I am writing this today even though I feel miserable.  The weather changes finally have hit home and I just felt like I should have stayed in bed this morning.  I woke up feeling shaky and achy all over.  It looked like it was better after I ate breakfast but sadly that old icky feeling crept back on me after lunch.

My sweetie pie daughter brought me home celery and carrots about a week ago and they have been starring at me every time I opened the fridge door.  So, a homemade vegetable soup was in order to chase away this bug that found it's way to my door.
                                                                     First, I got out my selection of spices I thought would encourage healing.  Organic Watkins Garlic powder, onion powder, rosemary and 365 turmeric powder.
                                                                              Next, came the organic carrots and celery to soak in baking soda to remove any dirt and bacteria.  I usually soak them for 10 minutes then rinse with cold water.
                                                                            Chop, chop, chop and now I'm ready for another nap. Who knew you could get a good workout just from chopping up 2 bags of celery and 1 bag of carrots! lol
                                                                           Here they are, all my hard work cooking away in my lovely stainless steel Princess House stock pot with glass lid.  I am definitely putting this pot to good use and getting my monies worth out of it weekly.  It never complains either that it is being used again!!! hehe!!!

I'll let you know tomorrow if it chased the icky bug away.  I plan on freezing into portions for my dinners.  I can add pasta or sweet potatoes one night and acorn squash and turkey another night. Yumm!!!  Let me know what your favorite "Feel better soup" is, would ya?

Sweet Blessings,
