Recipe #19: CREAMY CHICKEN MACARONI SOPAS

I have a tooth ache since last night. It’s nice to know that we have creamy chicken macaroni sopas (soup) for dinner.

I know, I know, this is best served during the rainy or chilly seasons, but who cares? I want to enjoy a warm bowl (or two) of creamy chicken macaroni sopas despite the blistering weather lately. Besides, I can only chew on one side of my mouth, so this is the best option, or I starve to death.

I hope you enjoy this recipe. In my case, I’m waiting for my tooth fairy.
