Quarantine (and a recipe to boot!)

This is a first at the McVay household. We have ever had a sickness work its way through more than one person! I know its odd! I had it last week, Parker got it on the 24th, Pearson woke up with it today. I guess since I was sick I have not been as fastidious to decontaminate the sickie and all traces of the sickie.
But on a comic note Peyton who I think has the start of this STOMACH FLU has been walking around making sure no one touches, so they do not get sick. She's screaming "Pearson is touching Parker", "Parker's touching me", "Can sick kids pet the dog???" lols

Philippians 4:4 ...Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!

Hopefully, we'll be well soon and I can do another Kitchen post! See you soon!

Side note from Mama McVay...Here is the best Chicken noodle soup recipe I have found. For sick children they start with the broth and advance to the rest. You can freeze this in yogurt cups so anytime someone in your house is sick you can break out your homemade soup as you transform into super MOM!

This is a 5* All Recipe, recipe....

Grandma's Chicken Noodle Soup

2 1/2 cups wide egg noodles
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
12 cups chicken broth
1 1/2 tablespoons salt
1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
1 cup chopped celery
1 cup chopped onion
1/3 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup water
3 cups diced, cooked chicken meat
Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add egg noodles and oil, and boil for 8 minutes, or until tender. Drain, and rinse under cool running water.
In a large saucepan or Dutch oven, combine broth, salt, and poultry seasoning. Bring to a boil. Stir in celery and onion. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer 15 minutes.
In a small bowl, mix cornstarch and water together until cornstarch is completely dissolved. Gradually add to soup, stirring constantly. Stir in noodles and chicken, and heat through.
