Classic Chicken Noodle Soup

October 23, 2018

We're heading into the winter season, or what I like to call - cold season.  As I was checking my son out from daycare, I saw a sign I always dread: GREEN ROOM - 1 CASE OF CROUP. 


This past weekend, I felt like Teddy was getting a cold and now I think M might be catching something as well. It's the perfect season for Chicken Noodle Soup.  


Whenever I was feeling under the weather, Pat would drive over and with her she would bring a batch of chicken noodle soup. I want to be able to do this for my kids whenever they are sick. Unfortunately, she passed away before I could get the exact recipe down. I got this recipe from my friend Rachel and it was so close to Pat's - it's no my go-to. 


I hope you enjoy this soup on a cold, blustery day. Whip it up if someone you love is struggling with staying healthy. It's sure to put a smile on their face!
