The Au Bon Pain chain is very good about listing the ingredients above their soups. For some reason, they put the mac & cheese in a pot along with the soups. I was surprised to see that one of the m & c ingredients was chicken broth. I've made it from scratch from a variety of recipes, including what I think of as the Southern version of baked m & c, and I don't remember ever hearing of chicken broth. I did a web search and came up with some, including one on a blog called plainchicken.com, which makes sense (although not all of her recipes include chicken. The Bisquick Chocolate Chip cookies are chickenless, for example).
What I actually bought was the carrot ginger soup, which I liked a lot. I don't know whether I could duplicate it at home, but I'm thinking about it. Usually I only buy fresh (organic, locally grown) ginger from one of the vendors at the Copley Square Farmer's Market, which means that I don't get it most of the year (advice - if you try to get extra and freeze it, grate it first - freezing it makes the texture mushy). I don't have any now, though. This time of year, does ginger come from Thailand?

According to this article, people should expect to be coughing for up to 18 days without worrying about it too much. Comforting in its own way.
