i haven’t had chicken noodle soup in oh probably about 5 years. why? dad went through a phase when i was around 14, where he made chicken noodle soup about every other weekend. the constant smell of chicken broth went from the smells of yum to nauseousness, not to mention i was also a vegetarian at the time. needless to say it has taken a VERY long time for chicken noodle soup to sound good again. so this weekend when i got a sudden feeling for the stuff i knew i had to run with that urge and make it!
chicken noodle soup, i discovered while researching recipes, is shockingly lacking in vegetables! just carrots and celery. while i do like celery, i don’t really count it as a vegetable or as food really just sort of a flavorful alternative to drinking water. thus began the tweaking of recipes. my soup may of found some lima beans added to it and a little something else to give it a kick.
for my first batch of chicken noodle soup ever, i must say, i do declare it a success. the banana crumb muffins of course helped make the meal extra splendid. i love baking those because the muffins have a butter/brown sugar crumb on top and when they are baking they make the whole house smell like melted sweet butter……mmmmmmmmmmmmm.
