Winter has finally done me in.
It wasn't the weeks and weeks of sub-freezing temperatures.
It wasn't the three plus feet of snow that we received in less than two weeks.
It wasn't the total chaos I have been living through at work as a result of the crazy weather.
It wasn't the fact that I haven't seen a patch of land in my back yard since November.
It was the gutters.
The silly, stupid gutters.
The temperatures finally hit the 30's, the ice on the roof started to melt and took the gutter with it - the ones we replaced in November.
If there was ever a week that I needed a cure-all soup, this was it.
This was a simple soup - chicken stock, garlic (lots and lots of garlic), herbs, cheese and egg (yolks). It is exactly the kind of soup that I would want when I am cold, sick, miserable and otherwise cranky.
Fortunately, the pending arrival of spring will bring warmer weather. The snow will melt. The gutter will get fixed. And...by the time this posts, I will be 1400 miles away in some place much warmer.
Yeah, a few days in warm weather will go a long ways toward "curing all" too.
Have a great weekend all.
This post participates in French Fridays with Dorie. A version of this soup can be found here.
