I’ve been sick with a wretched cough for nearly 2 weeks. I have eaten so much soup and want to remember them for the next time the germs catch up with me.
These are from restaurants that deliver via Doordash, GrubHub or Foodler, or available by sweet-talking Hubby into picking up for me.
- Greek Corner – Avegolemono chicken lemon rice soup
- India Palace – spicy chicken soup
- Au Bon Pain – chicken noodle soup or pumpkin bisque
- Pandan Leaf – Thai chicken coconut milk soup
- Asian House – Thai rice chowder
- Mary Chung’s – suan la chow show – spicy pork wontons soup with bean sprouts
- Panera – French onion soup
- Genki Ya – Miso soup
- Dumpling House – chicken corn soup
Other soothing concoctions:
The Neighborhood – The Cream of Wheat is soupy and comforting
Mary Chung’s – Yu Shiang Eggplant with shredded chicken has a spicy sauce that feels great on a sore throat and opens the sinuses
Here’s to better health in the days ahead!

Greetings from cough central!
Another day, more soup. This is getting ridiculous! I went in to the office but ran out of energy before lunch time. Argh.
Hubby picked me up, got my favorite Chinese soup – suan la chow show – and yu shiang eggplant, hoping they will cure me. I ate them and fell into bed.
I had Thai coconut chicken soup for supper… I’m going to make a list of all the soups I’ve eaten so I can find it easily next time I’m sick. Heh.
After 11 days of coughing I am running out of soups and wondering if I will ever get better. Might be time to go to the doctor. Yuck. Usually when I think that, I start to get better. Hope that works this time!

Wow… can’t believe it’s been five years since I finished treatment for breast cancer. After 9 months of “going to the doctor too much” through diagnosis, two surgeries, chemo and radiation – I was finally done. And now I’ve survived for five years, when the risk factors go way down! Whoohoo!
