i am grateful for....

"food" (day 15)

chicken noodle soup
1 roasted chicken(from grocery store)
small bag mini carrots
1 onion
3 bay leaves
1 tsp dry thyme
1 lb egg noodles( you don't need all of them!)
salt and pepper

  1. put your chicken in a large pot and almost cover with water
  2. add the onion coarsely chopped up, and 10 or so baby carrots, and the bay leaves and thyme
  3. bring to a boil and then let simmer (uncovered)for a long time (three hours?) add water
  4. strain the broth and then return it to the pot.
  5. get all the meat off the chicken...well most of it. ew. then throw the rest of that stuff away...
  6. put it back in the broth.
  7. add salt and pepper, a little water, the rest of the carrots (each baby cut into three pieces for quicker cooking), and as many noodles as you like. remember they plump up!
ymmmmmm
i know this is simple, but still, i thought i'd share.
serve it with fresh bread!
i bake my own with a secret recipe.
it's called "grammy bread"
passed to me by my kid's honorary "grammy lois"
i am so lucky.
sorry i can't share the recipe.
ha ha! no i'm not.
