Transitioning back to work and school in the new year can feel like A LOT. Because, let’s be honest, for the last week or two none of us have really known what day or time it is and we’ve been sipping on a few more martinis than usual 😂 (myself included)! I know it’s the season of New Year’s resolutions, but I don’t think we have to go from holiday mode to perfection overnight!! In fact, I think what makes whatever resolutions you’ve set more attainable is by being kind to yourself and taking them one step at a time. I didn’t really do the whole resolutions thing this year if I’m being totally honest. My goal this January is just to ease myself back into work slowly and not allow myself to get overwhelmed. One thing I will be doing to give myself that little bit of comfort is cooking a hardy and nostalgic meal. My go-to at this time of year is none other than my momma’s Chicken Soup recipe!! This recipe can be done in TWO ways: a vegan and a non-vegan version.
Peggy’s Chicken Soup is filled with hardy vegetables and has a lovely creamy quality that will even convince your kiddos to eat their veggies! (Talk about checking off those new year’s resolutions right out the gate, right?!) This soup also pairs well with the Perfect White Buns from my cookbook, if you’re looking for a side to go with it.
So, ready to give Peggy’s Chicken Soup a whirl?!
I hope this yummy soup makes your January a little brighter! Remember, you’ve got this!!
