I tend to like more of a brothy soup than a creamy one, so when I was ill with pneumonia and had 4 little ones to watch, my mother-in-law came to help for a weekend and made a small pot of the soup she use to make her boys. Just chicken stock or broth,some pastina, get nice and hot, beat up an egg and slowly stir it into the hot soup..then a little salt and a piece of toast on the side. I lived on that for days. Quick, easy, fast to do..loved it and still do.

That's right BT. Egg and lemon.

Yes - fast egg-drop is another good one. I'll just heat up some Swanson's chicken broth & stir a beaten egg into it. A few drops of soy sauce if I'm up to it & I'm all set.

One can also do the same thing for an impromptu "wonton" if one has a bag of frozen potstickers in the freezer. Just heat up some chicken broth, toss in a few frozen potstickers, & simmer until they're cooked thru. You can also add a beaten egg to this as well - sort of an eggdrop/wonton combo. Quick, easy, & great when you have a cold coming on.

nearly forgot, Muligatawny (pepper water [trans]) is another fave too, there used to be a shop by us that sold it for 19 pence a tin, and it was great! they got closed and I`ve never seen it in tins since, and never been able to replicate it faithfully either :(

Chicken soup, I have some in the freezer all the time. I make a bunch
at one time and freeze in single portions. With 5 of us at home it
comes in very handy and makes you feel all warm inside, and better.
When the last serving is gone you can be sure to catch me in the kitchen
as soon as I can making another batch.

I would have to add baked potatoe soup is my favorite but that is
another subject.
is your glass half full or empty? my is half full

I recently tried giada's pasta e fagioli. It was very good.

A variation on the traditional french onion soup that's good is Martha Stewart's 7 onion soup. You use red, white, yellow and pearl onions with leeks, shallots and chives.
