I headed to Brooklyn on a sticker mission for work.
You came home early with lymph-nodes exploding.
I made vegetable broth, and nursing maneuvers.
Pleasure reading, letting you sleep, and easing into the Thanksgiving break.
Get-Well Veggie Broth
Water brought to a boil. All the leftover veggies in your fridge and on your bar top: 1 whole (medium) onion, mushroom stems and (3) mushroom caps, carrots, celery greens, herbs (nothing spicy for the sick boy). A dab of butter. Dash of salt? What else?
Bring to boil, then let simmer for 60-90 minutes.
The Joy of Cooking says you can put your whole onion in the broth without peeling or cutting it. This adds to the broth color (allegedly).
Broth seemed to the satisfaction of the sick boy, and after a long sleep, he seemed better.
