If you were to come to my house any day of the week, you would more than likely see a full fridge. My parents think it is amazing how only two people in the house can keep a fridge packed with fresh food all the time. Well, there there happened to be a day my husband and I were babysitting our nephew and we needed to feed him lunch……and we had not been grocery shopping that week due to a busy schedule. I panicked and started raiding the pantry to see what I could make. We did have some boxed Mac and Cheese and some cans of soup, but I really wanted to give him something more nutritional than that. The only idea I could think of was soup. I think I even blurted out “Chicken Noodle Soup?” before I realized I had never made it before. Of course, our nephew said “Yes.”
I looked through the pantry and the refrigerator and realized we had carrots, noodles, canned chicken, an onion, and some broth. The noodles were not egg noodles and we did not have celery, but I figured I could make soup with these ingredients. So, I started chopping, opening up cans, and concocting chicken noodle soup for the first time. Needless to say, it came out pretty good and my nephew cleared his bowl……TWICE. To me, that was a sign of success!
I have since then perfected My Famous Chicken Noodle Soup which I make often for my husband and I. And now I would like to share it with you.
