A new video for Video Friday

At this time of the year when more people succumb to colds and flu, it’s good to know how to make a restorative chicken soup. Mine is really simple, taking just a few minutes, so you can haul yourself out of bed to make it yourself if you don’t have anyone to nurse you at home.

This soup is nourishing and delicious. It’s the kind of soup that will perk up sluggish appetites.

A Week of Chicken

By Lori Powell

My go-to find for a quick weeknight dinner is rotisserie chicken. When it first became the rage, all you could purchase was a whole bird that was pre-seasoned. Now you can buy just a breast or half a chicken that is organic and unseasoned.

So instead of my usual recipe format this week, I thought it would be more useful to give you some ideas for what you can make from a rotisserie chicken for your quick-fix weeknight dinner.

I slipped and slid my way down what I have now learned is not 1/3 of a mile but a ½-mile driveway. It may not seem like much of a difference but when you are skidding on ice, it might as well be another 100 miles down the road.
