Let me just take a moment to say another huge thank you to all of you who are enjoying the blog. I love reading your funny and kind comments on here and on Facebook. As I've stated before, I am very blessed to have a good family and great friends....
It is cold out, kids! We're expecting another snowstorm, so for the most part we're living on hot chocolate and soup. I thought this might be a good time to share one of my favorite recipes. Chicken Noodle Soup. I know a lot of you make your own versions, but if you don't, give this one a try. It's a keeper. As always, exact amounts of ingredients can vary. Feel free to add or take away anything in the recipe- You can rarely go wrong with soup :)
-A bag of frozen or dry thick noodle pasta. Definitely cook these before you mix to make the soup. They will turn into a nasty mush if you add them raw. I boil them with 1 tsp of parsley.
-3 cans of chicken broth or stock
-2 cups of fresh or frozen diced cooked chicken. I use Schwann frozen diced chicken. It is precooked.
-3 celery stalks, diced
-1 medium onion diced
-2 cups sliced carrots. .
-1 TBS of chopped Garlic
-1 tsp. Thyme
-1-2 Bay leaves
I use a gallon size baggie to mix the chicken, sage, thyme and oregano.
So you don't doubt my white-trashiness, know that I am NOT above serving this.....
Stay full and warm, friends!
