The cold season has begun, and Franklin came home one day with a runny nose. Unfortunately, I have 0 patience for sickness in my house — it sounds harsh, but I spend my days cleaning, cooking, working, entertaining, and the last thing I want to do is also nurse someone through an illness, even if it’s just a cold. If it materializes, so be it, but I’m going to do my best to nip it in the bud!
When my loved ones are sick, I always bust out the ginger and garlic. They are potent anti-bacterial wonders, and they taste great too. And since my husband had bought a bag of carrots from Trader Joe’s, I figured that a carrot soup would do just the trick. Bonus: this soup makes great baby food too. I also added a little red curry paste, since I can’t have enough of the stuff ever since I tried it in Heather’s amazing Butternut Squash Soup.
Franklin loved it. Baby Nicholas loved it. We all did. And, no one got sick, although I will also credit our trusted elderberry tincture for that!
