Manflu is a lesser known condition but is one that ravishes men across the world, particularly when housework needs to be done or attention needs to be paid to girlfriends.
-Moaning and Groaning
-Over exaggerating pain and discomfort
-Vampire like sensitivity towards light
-temporary allergic to housework and performing basic tasks
-Improved skill when playing Call Of Duty
-Reminding friends and strangers about how sick they are.
-Constant cries for sympathy
I feel it is my duty to remedy this as Manflu has impacted my life greatly, i can remember the many days i have had to spend in pajamas playing video games and complaining to my sisters and girlfriend about how terrible Manflu (its pretty much worse than childbirth) The best way to cure Manflu is a two pronged approach: 1. Treat the problem with rest and soup laced with ginger as ginger has healing properties and 2. Make the soup delicious so your man shuts the hell up.
Feel free to skip the stock making process and use store bought stock
4 chicken frames (with flesh otherwise buy some chicken breasts as well)
4 sticks celery (including leaves)
2 cans creamed corn
tbsp minced ginger
4-5 spring onions finely sliced
3 egg whites
1. For the stock combine the chicken carcasses, onion, celery and carrot in a large pot and cover with water (approx 4-6 liters)
2. Bring to a boil and then simmer for 4-5 hours.
3. Strain well through muslin and allow the broth to cool in the fridge.
4. In the meantime pick the meat of the carcasses (alternatively poach chicken breasts and shred the meat)
5. when the stock has set, skim any fat and return the stock to a clean pot.
6. Add the shredded chicken meat, 2 cans of creamed corn and the ginger. At this stage season with salt to taste
7. Bring the soup to a high heat and slowly add the egg whites, stirring constantly. This will create strands of egg white.
8. To serve add soy sauce and sesame oil to taste and top with spring onions.
