Flu Bug

Posted by Dawn at Tuesday, May 15, 2007
There seems to be a flu bug going around as my colleagues take mc and come back with a "sexy" voice that doesnt seem to go away for days. Thank God my immunity was strong enough and was protected from having the bug.

However, CT was not spared and he finally took mc after not taking one for the whole year. He was down with sore throat, cough, runny nose. After a day or two, his sore throat disappeared but along came with phlegm and cough.

Because of this, I decided to cook for him a soup that is good for lungs and cough.

I added a lot of stuff to make the soup really taste and naturally sweet.

This is what it looks like when I boil the soup under high heat. There's chinese dried vegetables, gei zi (wolfberries-which is good to add in soups. Has great antioxidant properties and good for eyes too), chinese almond seeds(the northern and southern ones which differ in taste), pork ribs, red dates, dried fig etc.

I put in over a big fire for about 1 hour plus. It was quite dry towards the end, so I added water which was ended up still sweet and tasty.

Final product being served......

This is the ingredients which I put. One bag full of stuff...

Hmm..just for the two of us to drink. Is it worth it?

Well, I think it is...anything for my husband... :)
