Today is Monday. Today feels like Monday. I’m stressed already and I just woke up.
There is a bug in our house that started with a friend that was visiting who got it, and then passed on to my older son, and then last night struck my three year old. Luckily, it seems to only be a 24 hour bug, but my little guy was up half the night getting sick. There is nothing worse than seeing your child suffering.
On top of this, my dad is going in for hip replacement surgery today. I live 650 miles away from him, and it’s killing me to not be there to support him in person. He has been in a lot of pain for the last 9 months. Although he is very much looking forward to this surgery, it doesn’t stop the worry!
Today feels like a good day for some “get well soon” soup. I’m revisiting a recipe I posted several months ago because I found a different kind of pasta that my family just loved. My son loves Campbell’s Double Noodle Family Style Soup, but I do not love all the sodium and yucky stuff that is in it. I found Fideo Cut Spaghetti in the pasta aisle and I knew this would make my soup recipe a lot more like Campbell’s. Fideo is basically just short pieces of regular spaghetti. My son was convinced my soup was from his favorite can. Win!
If you are also having the Monday blues, give this soup a try and cheer up, buttercup. I’m gonna do the same!
