Chicken Soup

I wasn’t feeling very well this weekend but I really tried to push through for the dreaded Monday in order to go back to work. I guess I should have stayed home because I was noticeably not well. ‘Tis the season in NYC. I did get a flu shot- though it was late. Better late than never!

My boss, a nurse for many years, took one look at me and said, “Young lady…you want to go home?” I love her for that because I could not bring myself to call out. It’s a new job and I’ve only been working there for 3 months. I’m trying to be a team player but I guess my immune system isn’t. Whatever I have has been going around work so it’ll be nice to get an extended break from the germs.

On my way back home, I picked up two large chicken soups from a local Dominican (Republic) restaurant. The chef must have sprinkled it with love because this soup is amazing- so amazing that it inspired me to write about it. It has the perfect blend of carrots, potatoes, yuca, chicken, parsley, and some other flavors that I can’t pinpoint.

Have you ever tried Dominican soup? I’d love to hear your thoughts on it. Leave a comment. More to come!
