For Many years, when anyone was sick in the family, my Mom always made a pot of her healing soup. It has become a special request now anytime someone in the family is ill, and also when we are all well, but needing some of her special soup made from her loving hands.
I don't know what it is- maybe the combination of her love and prayers while she's preparing it- but I swear when I enjoy the first warm spoonful, I start feeling better...and very loved.
This is a tradition I want to pass along to all of you, especially now, during this crazy flu season- but don't wait till everyone's sick- give them a warm bowl while they can really enjoy the delicious flavors.
2 beef shanks (with lots of meat on them)
Cover with water then cook on boil low for about one hour.
Add 1 onion, chopped. Add broth (3 cans chicken) and 1 can stewed tomatoes and 2 T. chicken bouillon and cook for at least least 30 minutes. Add 5 or 6 cubed potatoes- and celery chopped and carrots, sliced (2 each) let cook on med. another 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Another wonderful recipe from My Momma and Me!
