Saturday's dinner plans got cancelled due to a suspected case of strep throat and a death in the family, so we stayed in instead and convalesced. You want to make a sore throat feel better? My advice for you is spicy sausagey soup, like this Olive Garden Zuppa Toscana knockoff. We used masses of spinach and beef broth and half & half and I added carrots, turned out really delicious. Like most soups, a really adaptable recipe and usually better the next day.
