Love is, piping hot soup when you need it.
It just needs ten minutes of your time. Chop some veggies, some chicken, some herbs, saute, water, season, simmer, done! Please don’t buy canned soup. Or the soup mixes. You don’t even need chicken stock or bouillon cubes. This soup is tasty, fresh and healthy. What’s more, you know exactly what went into it.
What more could you ask for? Someone to make it for you? Well, you have to find a volunteer. But even if you can’t, no big deal. If you can stand up and walk, and find your toes, you can make this soup. It is really easy! What better way to show that you love yourself?
