Can this soup be rescued?
So today I cooked up Thanksgiving dinner to take with me to Dad's tmw. This is my first time making TG dinner, so I went with something I know well as the main dish--chicken noodle soup. I have made this soup MANY times for myself with delicious results. So I had it for dinner tonight but it is causing me really bad indigestion, WHY? I didn't use many onions--could the celery be causing it? I did use more celery than usual--but I also used more pasta than usual too. Also I used white onion instead of my usual Spanish onion, would that make a difference? This meal is what I'm taking with me to Dad's house tmw, I don't want my first meal cooked for TG to be ruined by indigestion and for him to tell all his friends/family how terrible my meal was. Should I dilute the soup with a cup of water? Two cups of water? Remove as much of the celery as I can? Can this soup be rescued??? I don't want to serve it but I don't have any thing else as the main entree--I made the cranberry sauce from scratch and I mashed up some yams with butter and I made the Libby's pumpkin pie, and I was planning on boiling some asparagus tmw morning and getting a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store. Do I wake up early tmw, skip the gym, and make it all over again with minimal onions and celery? Was Thanksgiving designed to cause women tons of stress? I kind of think so? How can this soup be a wadder? I told Dad about the soup and he suggested having Progresso chicken noodle soup in a can. We are not having soup in a can for TG dinner, I am not letting that happen.
Please help!!! And Happy Thanksgiving?
Update: maybe it was the cranberry sauce? as per this?
