I had other meal plans when I bought these ingredients, but then I got sick and decided I needed soup. I was seriously annoyed that I managed to stay healthy all winter, but then got sick at the very end of April! But I’m overworked, overtired and surrounded by people who don’t take very good care of themselves (med students). A lot of sleep and this soup and I felt much better!
