Chicken Noodle Soup

It's Sunday and was supposed to be my first day of work in a week. But then I decided to just stay at home since I am not feeling very well. My husband took a day-off as well because he has severe back pain. After visiting our doctors this morning we passed-by in a newly open Chinese grocery near our flat. I was so happy to find tofu, dried mushrooms and different kinds of noodles as well. We bought a pack of tofu, and a kilo of noodles. On our way home I ask my husband to buy some veggies because I will be cooking chicken noodle soup. So, I guess this marks that we are officially sick.

I remember when I was kid, my Mom usually cooked noodles for me. She said it will help me get better. I don’t specifically know the reason behind, well aside from it will keep me warm.

It was my first time to cook Chicken Noodle Soup, or we Pinoys usually call it chicken mami. I am not even sure if I did the right thing. Thus it tasted very good though.
