When I feel a cold or the flu coming on (which almost never happens) I don’t “reach for Anacin.” I reach for a V8, to which I add a pinch or two of cayenne and heat it in the microwave. The hot beverage helps stave off illness before it takes hold and relieves symptoms if one does fall ill. I love a hot V8 with cayenne even on a feel good day.
Faye has been fighting off a cold and has been doing quite well at keeping symptoms to a minimum. In planning breakfast this morning I remembered this post about egg drop soup by fravitch (Your Home For Homemade Japanese Food). I love egg drop soup but can’t remember the last time I had it.
Then it struck me. Why not do an egg drop V8? It would sort of be like an egg drop shakshuka. Sort of.
Even though I am enjoying the best of health this really appealed to me, so I fixed another one for myself.
