The Best Medicine

Bashkir SoupIts that time of year, when the weather is above freezing during the day, and below freezing at night.  When I walk to work, I usually start sweating, so I remove my hat and unbutton my coat as much as possible.  My Russian friends tell me that I am just asking to get sick.  That is just an old wives tale, I thought.  Perhaps they were right, as I’ve been a little under the weather lately.  I stopped and picked up a jar of homemade soup from the grocery store.  If an old wives tale can make me sick, another one can cure me.  Nothing beats a bowl of good soup for kicking the common cold.  This is wonderful stuff, and I am sure it is healing what ails me.  I can’t be sure what kind of meat is in the soup; in Russia this is a fair question, but it sure is good!
