We call it the "sicky soup" and "can I have some of that soup with the little strings in it." If you are not the sick one, it really stinks when you open the can.

Can't really offer any under-the-weather soup, etc. It's been so long since Buck and I were sick (literally years and years) that we really only prepare soups for pleasure. The last time Buck was sick with a cold/flu was sometime in the late '70s. I made him plenty of chicken soup then. Seems to be a universal make-you-feel-better sort of soup. It's good stuff no matter how you feel.

I usually have miso in the fridge for stir fries so it's the easiest quick soup for me to make. Some boiling water, a quick stir, a bit of chopped scallion and I have soup. DW also likes chicken soup made from soup base, but it's not as quick because she adds veggies and pasta that have to cook for a while.

Hot & sour clears up my sinuses, but i can always count on some split pea with fried onions, croutons and little chunks of jarlsberg cheese ( I like when the little buggers start to melt).

When I'm under-the-weather I like a nice flavorful chicken broth with the little, skinny egg noodles. Hits the spot for sure!

Not very creative I know but HEY, I'm sick! :-)

A good brothy chicken soup, but modified with added beaten egg drizzled into it after I remove it from the heat, and with a couple of good hot peppers thrown in to help clear my sinuses. Has to have lots of celery, onion, and flavor. I can have rice or noodles, but that's not a requirement as the egg threads are very comforting and feel great in my mouth. Less carbs too.

And the soup should have a definite viscosity from the dissolved collagen. I want real chicken soup.
