Welcome to Tasty Tuesday!
What’s with the tissues? Well…
We have been seeing our share of tissue over the last couple of weeks! With everyone but Tim getting sick, I should just buy them in bulk.
What’s the best food in the world for sore throats and stuffy noses?
Chicken Noodle Soup!!!
Everyone knows there’s something special about it when you’re feeling a little under the weather. Some medical experts say there’s a real benefit to eating chicken noodle soup. Whether it’s because of the steam, spices, or the warm, happy, goodness of it, I don’t know!
I’m not going to be exact with this recipe because I never measure anything while I cook it.
I take about 1 pound of chicken ( whatever kind you like) and add it to a pot on the stove with a little olive oil, 1 small chopped onion, celery (about 1/2 cup, chopped) , garlic (about 2 tablespoons), and cook until the chicken is done and the onions are clear.
Then I add about 32 ounces of chicken broth and 32 ounces of water. Bring to a boil. Add 2 cups of baby carrots (really you can add them anytime). I usually buy baby carrots so I don’t have to chop them up. I add salt and pepper and maybe even a seasoning or two that I find in the cabinet. This is something you’ll have to taste test and then decide what you want to add. Cook for 60 minutes. Add 1/2 bag of egg noodles. Cook for 10 minutes and serve.
Here’s a really easy recipe for Chicken Noodle Soup with measurements!
