After a visit to the doctor this morning and a smoothie from McDonald's for the patient, a big old coffee for mom and her prescription, I came home to make a pot of chicken soup for my baby.
I always have the fixins for chicken noodle soup as I always save the carcasses from our roast chickens in the freezer. All you have to do is pop the frozen carcass in boiling water and let simmer for about an hour. I then let it cool a bit and pick it clean. Add the rest of the ingredients, which are staples and you have homemade chicken soup. One meal of roast chicken and another of chicken noodle soup. Now that's how you stretch a chicken. To me it just isn't the same unless you've boiled some chicken bones in there.
Please oh please spring come and swipe away the illnesses. Minor I know compared to what others are suffering with but who wants to see their kiddos sick. Let's hope we don't get it!
**Update: Someone asked what I put in my chicken soup. If I have cans of broth I use some of those and water with some chicken bullion if needed. Sea salt and pepper with parsley is our favorite. Of course diced onion, celery and carrots. Occasionally I will use dill as I love it that way but the kids aren't fans.
