While it’s not exactly Thanksgiving up here in Canada, I thought it’d be nice to at least support my southern counterparts. I mean, it’s the least I can do. And though you won’t find mashed potatoes and gravy gracing my tabletop this evening (sigh), I’ve whipped up the next best thing. This turkey soup is comfort food embodied. It’s so wholesome, so delicious, and it simply tastes like home. Bonus: it works perfectly with those leftovers you may have on hand in the coming days (unless you want to mail me some. That’s cool too.) Happy Thanksgiving my dears!
As mentioned yesterday, I’ve been feeling slightly draggy over the course of the last few days. I wouldn’t go so far as to say I’m sick, but I’m definitely turning into a bit of a weepy, needy baby, which is a tell tale sign. And when I’m feeling under the weather, there are just a few things that I rely on to get me through. Peppermint tea, a cozy robe and old episodes of Friends rank high amongst that list. Oh, and oil of oregano. It’s quite foul and totally unpleasant but I absolutely swear by it.
You know those days where you’re just not feeling quite yourself? Where your eyes feel heavy, your throat scratchy, your body tired, yet you’re not exactly sick so you can’t really call it a day and just lay there? That’s kind of how I’m feeling lately. Slightly run down. In need of tea, and sleep. Maybe a cuddle or two! And I can think of no better place to accomplish this list of serious tasks than within the confines of these walls. It’s calm, clean, cozy and just what the doctor ordered.
