Last night I witnessed a degree of bar abuse that is probably being entered into the Guinness book as we speak. The final try in the Sharks rock star performance was like the little hammer in that mouse trap game that sets the ball rolling on down its path of destruction and self destruct we did!. I saw behavior (and hair styles I might add) at Rovers that Russel Brandt would be scared of. There is pretty much eff all that will help you after a night like last night except my mom's Chicken Soup. That cheap ass gas station Pie you are thinking about is not the solution. Home made chicken soup is a super delicious, healthy way to say sorry to your body for last night its also fab for lunch at work on Monday with a buttery piece of toast. yum.
1 whole skinned chicken
5 big leeks chopped
2 stalks of celery chopped finely
5 big carrots grated
a punnet of button mushrooms diced
10 baby melies chopped 
3 Bay leaves
2 chicken stock cubes
some salt
some black pepper
Start by skinning the chicken and trimming it of any excess fat. Grab a big pot and chuck in all the ingredients, except the melies, and fill the pot up with water until the chicken is covered. Bring the soup up to the boil and then turn the heat down until the water is bubbling lightly. Leave the soup to boil for about an hour or until the chicken is literally falling off the bone. Using a big spatula, fish the chicken out, pull all the meat off the bone and return it to the pot. Chuck in the baby melies return the pot to the stove for 5 minutes or until they are cooked. Serve with a big chunk of crusty bread.
