Jen's Chicken Tortilla Soup

So, I went to bed Thursday night with a slight tickle in my throat. No big deal, right??? Wrong. I woke up in the middle of the night with a fever, and my throat felt like it was on fire. Ugh. I got myself into the doctor's office first thing Friday morning, and low and behold....strep. STREP! Not only strep, but strep with a temperature of 102.5!!! I hate being sick, and unfortunately I think my immune system sucks lately. Every little bug that goes around I end up catching. I don't know why...I am a clean and health-conscious person! It is frustrating. All I can say is that I am in a lot of public places where lots of kids hang out(i.e. train park, zoo, library, etc.), so that must be where I catch all these lovely little bugs. I am just going to start bathing in an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Anyway, here was our dinner last night:

Jen's Chicken Tortilla Soup

The husband made this soup for us yesterday, since I was pretty much out of it. This soup is so comforting and soothing, with just the right amount of spicy zip to it. We were supposed to go out for a fancy dinner, but we had to can the whole idea due to my sickness. I am going to San Diego on Sunday (tomorrow), so I think we will just have to celebrate Mother's Day when I get back. I am feeling better, and I am amazed at the difference that 24 hours of antibiotics can do for a girl. At least I should still be able to go on vacation! Whew!
