Sick And Tired Of Being Sick And Tired!!

Hi there to all my wonderful friends!! I hope you have all had an amazing New Year celebration and just overall a wonderful Holiday Season! My Holiday Season was great up until Christmas Day, it seems like Santa decided to bring me a terrible cold as a present this year and boy has it been terrible. I am not one that gets sick often, in fact, besides a migraine once in a while, I haven't really had a cold in a few years. I am the kind of person that is always on the go and doesn't like to slow down, but this cold knocked me right back on my behind and I haven't been able to do a thing for a week and a half now! I apologize for the lack of action on 'Laura in the Kitchen' this week, it's just that I barely even had a voice so filming was out of the question and as shocking as this sounds to everybody that knows me, I haven't even gone into the kitchen very much at all because I've had no strength to even think about dicing or sauteing anything. I truly am so lucky to have such a wonderful husband who has been by my side taking care of me, keeping up with household chores, cooking for me, reminding me to take my medicine and all of that. I can't imagine how I would have been able to make it through the worst days without him, he pretty much rocks my world!

So since I haven't been in the kitchen cooking or doing anything for that matter, my sweet hubby was doing some of the cooking for a while and I must say that I did enjoy it quite a bit! He mostly whipped up some soups, he made my Nonna's Chicken Soup, a pot of Italian Wedding Soup and he also made a yummy Soba Noodle Soup with just a bunch of leftovers from the fridge. The chicken soup and Italian wedding soup were my recipes that he just followed (he did an incredible job!) but the Soba Noodle Soup was something he whipped up from leftovers and it was super yummy and I was super impressed. So, if any of you aren't feeling so good these days, I really suggest you getting someone to make you some homemade soup, it might not totally heal you but it does make you feel so much better! I will be back to blogging more often this upcoming week once I get off the couch and get some energy back! 
Check out the soup episodes if you haven't already, sick or not they are totally divine and you must make them! 

This is my nonna's famous chicken soup! 

This is my husband's fabulous creation!

  3. Did you have the flu?? It's an "epidemic" in Philly, very close to where we are. I'm glad you're feeling a little better

  4. Well done, to your hubby! I've never used Soba noodles but will give it a go. Thanks! Laura,you poor thing. I think you need to take it easy for a few more days so you don't relapse. Get well.

  7. Love from Bulgaria! I 'discovered' you long time ago and since then began my love for cooking. Well, I can make 3-4 things by now but I enjoy it and have more to learn when I have the time.

    I haven't been visiting your channel for a while and now when I heard the intro - oh I can't describe it well, but is something like when one goes home after a while - so good feeling!

    Happy New Year! All the world loves you and thanks you!
    Have some rest, we will wait for you!
