a few what's cooking wednesdays ago, our dear fairy blogmother was feeling under the weather. sadly at that time it was still hovering around 90 degrees here by the bay & my nifty lil' camera was lacking the support photos, so i couldn't do a special get-well soup for shan. well, we recently had a shift in temperature, a circulating first-of-season cold & leftover chicken that inspired me to get moving on this recipe. so if you are feeling under the weather, this one's dedicated to you!
