A miracle has occurred. I am bleeding! It is almost exactly one year since I began twice weekly acupuncture treatments. 14 months of Chinese herb therapy and I FINALLY am bleeding. I realize it's a bit odd to be this happy, but I was starting to wonder if I was throwing my money away.
This is the first cycle that I have had in over 10 years that has not been aided by progesterone or birth control pills. I am having my own tiny personal miracle. I am stunned.
I am stunned because I've gotten lazy. I've gained weight. I've stopped temping. I've stopped peeing on sticks. I was discouraged. I need to pick myself up by my panty liner wings and start again. I have no idea if this was an ovulatory cycle or not.
I need your help. I love chicken soup. But only certain kinds of chicken soup. I don't really like a lot of veggies in my soup, just onion, celery, and carrots if I must. I don't like dark meat chicken, but I like my white meat to be moist in my soup.
There are two local restaurants that make yummy chicken soup. One uses egg noodles, and the other uses ancini di pepe (thie little tiny pasta balls). I don't even mind escarole. My problem, is that when I make soup it comes out thick. YUCK. I think I'm putting too much pasta? Also, the broth should be thin (And clearish.)... not thick like you get at Panera. They have gross chicken soup (in my opinion).
Please help me make good soup! I vow to make every soup recipe that is provided to me and to declare a winner. I will keep making soups until I find the perfect one. Help me internets. Help ME!
I should disclose that I am partial to soups that use little pasta balls.
