I came home from work Thursday night with that dreaded feeling. I could feel something lurking, I could feel something sinister waiting to attack. But noooooo, not so fast bud! I've got homemade soup, whole grain bread, and a bottle of wine here and you don't stand a chance. Besides, I'm on vacation tomorrow and you won't ruin my day off!
So that's what I did...I ate something hearty. I heated up some homemade cabbage soup, toasted up some wonderful thick slices of bread (with dipping oil, of course), and opened up a bottle of red. And, just in case I needed reinforcements, this was followed, at bed time, by a shot of Tylenol Multi-Symptom Nighttime Cold Medicine.

I am not a wine connoisseur so, if you see this wine
in the +$15/bottle section of your liquor store, someone
has made a mistake. Return to the $8.99/bottle section.
And all is right with the world....until the next 'attack.' It's the cold and flu season...be safe everyone!
T-J Miracle Soup
(from Sacred Heart Hospital in Spokane, Washington for Overweight Heart Patients)
- 6 large onions
- 2 green peppers
- whole tomatoes (fresh or canned) - I use canned diced tomatoes and do not drain.
- 1 head of cabbage
- large stalk of celery
- season with dry onion soup mix
Yes, this soup is great if you're dieting. You can eat as much as you want...it's claim is that it does not add any calories. However, beware if your system is sensitive to cabbage...you know what I mean. It freezes well and everyone in my family loves it.
