I find that when I have a cold, chest colds in particular, that soup is the only thing that soothes that burning, raspy ache in my chest. (Yes, I have seen a doctor and have been on an antibiotic; no it's not swine flu, just a month of bronchitis that's been aggravating my asthma.) I generally like chicken stock with lots of veggies, garlic, thyme and bay leaf. Nothing too heavy with protein or noodles. I'm tired of that and was wondering what soup ideas you guys have to soothe a cold.
