4-5 pounds chicken parts, cut-up
5 carrots, peeled and cut into thirds
4 celery ribs, cut into thirds
1 onion, halved
6 cloves garlic, halved
1 Tablespoon fresh parsley
2 teaspoons dried dill
salt and pepper to taste
Crawl to the store and buy the ingredients, or better yet, call up and get someone to do it for you.
Fill a large, havey-bottomed pot two thirds full with water.
Add chicken, carrots, celery, onion and garlic.
Bring to a boil over high heat.
The cover and simmer over medium heat.
Have someone watch the soup while you go back to bed and nap for an hour.
Crawl back into the kitchen and add the parsley, dill, salt and pepper.
Go back to bed and taken another nap for an hour or two.
By the time you get up, the soup will be ready.
Serve in a half-filled deep bowl so you don't spill it all over the bed.
Makes 6 to 8 servings.
It's all tongue and cheek but in the spirit of the cooking contest, I thought it would be a good entry.
