"Once we clearly acknowledge the soul, we can learn to hear it's cries. - Dallas Willard, Renovation Of The Heart."

It takes courage to pursue our dreams. It takes time and patience to unearth buried treasure. But I believe with all my heart that we must do both.


best ever

this was the best chicken soup i have ever had.

no kidding!

made me feel all warm and cozy inside, and loved.

here's the recipe, go make it.

Chicken Noodle Soup

16 cups canned chicken broth (low-salt if you prefer)
1 3 1/2-pound chicken, cut into 8 pieces

1/2 cup chopped onion
2 carrots, peeled, thinly sliced
2 celery stalks, sliced
(we used three of each)

2 tablespoons (1/4 stick) butter
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
8 oz. dried wide egg noodles
1/2 cup finely chopped fresh parsley

Combine chicken broth and chicken in heavy large pot. Bring to boil. Reduce heat; cover partially and simmer until chicken is cooked through, about 20 minutes. Remove chicken to large bowl. Cool chicken and broth slightly. Discard skin and bones from chicken. Cut chicken meat into bite-size pieces and reserve. Spoon fat off top of chicken broth.

Return broth to simmer. Add onion, carrots and celery. Simmer until vegetables soften, about 8 minutes. (Can be prepared 1 day ahead. Cover chicken meat and broth separately and refrigerate. Bring broth to boil before continuing.)

Melt 2 tablespoons butter in heavy large skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and saute until beginning to brown, about 5 minutes. Stir in lemon juice. Add mushrooms to broth; stir in noodles, parsley and reserved chicken. Simmer until noodles are tender, about 5 minutes. Season soup to taste with salt and pepper.

serves 12

Yum, Yum, Yum!!

I am with you, Mary. As my bronchitis/flu has now traveled to my head and my red nose, I have only wanted soup. I had two bowls yesterday, and two more today. Beef with rice and vegetables that my neighbor brought over. Wonderful! Soup is good food. Xox. Feel better tomorrow, okay? I am rooting for you!

Bren said...

Alright, that is one fine looking pot of soup and your man gets full props for making it for you while you were sick. I'll be trying out this soup, now if I could only convince my hubby to do the work :-)
