In keeping with the wonderful winter weather we have here I found a recipe that was my mom's for a really easy & satisfying soup .. it is an Italian version of egg drop soup called STRACCIATELLA.. it is so fast and easy .. you can make it in minutes .

Everyone always asks me why the people in Italy are not heavy .. with the fabulous food there and the 4 hour meals you would think the country would have a weight problem ~ but no .. you seldom see overweight people in Italy and I think it is because they eat fresh foods .. they eat what is in season and they eat at a table .. not in the car or standing by the fridge.

We owe it to ourselves to take care of our body .. I was blessed with a new grandson this past week and when I was holding him I thought to myself " if this little guy can realize that the body he has now will carry him through his life ~he would take such good care of it !"

So with that in mind ~ watch what you put into your body .. eat as good as you can .. enjoy your food .. eat fresh and for goodness sake eat sitting down .. with family or friends if at all possible ..on the good china .. with candles and flowers .. make it special because YOU are special ! it will make a difference in your life .


8 cups chicken broth
4 eggs~ beat well
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
2 tbs all purpose flour
1 cup finely chopped fresh spinach
1 tbs chopped flat leaf Italian parsley
salt & pepper

~in a large pot , heat 6 cups of chicken broth on high heat almost to boiling .In a separate bowl , combine 4 eggs ,2 cups additional broth with flour ,cheese , spinach , parsley , salt & pepper ..beat well & add slowly to soup , whisking 5 minutes or so until egg is cooked . Serve topped with additional cheese
