A Soup Kind Of Day
Yesterday morning when I looked out my kitchen window and saw that it was going to be this sort of day
gray, dreary, wet, snowy…I decided it would be a good day to stay inside and make some soup.
So that’s what I did. I’ve never actually bought a whole chicken (am I alone in this?? should I be embarrassed?? I feel like I should be…), but anyway, I bought a chicken and made Chicken Corn Noodle soup.
Here’s the big fella…
and here’s the end result. I made lots to freeze and although it took a long time to make, it was really easy.
