Mmmm Mmmm Good!

Today was a really cold day here. I think they said it was 43 degrees today. When the weather turns cold, I like to turn to soup. I usually make a stew, but today I was in the mood for something different. With both Gary's going to the Dr. out of town and Kourtney going to the games I thought it would be the perfect time to make something I knew I liked. Funny thing is though, they all came home to eat it! I thought for sure the boys would be eating in town and Kourtney said she was eating at the game, but they all wanted some soup. Sure am glad I made a big batch. I got this recipe from Cooking Light. It was delicious. I usually put a LOT of veggies in my soup, but this one really proved that less is more. It was delicious and will definetly be a repeat! Even the Gary's loved it. Sounds good to me!

In other news I recieved my 2nd postcard from the SwapBot Post Card Swap #2 . This one came from Lynn from Scotland! Talk about Cool! I am going to have to post some pictures of my postcards. Hopefully I will get to do that tonight.

Chicken Noodle Soup

1 tablespoon stick margarine or butter
1 cup chopped carrot
1 cup chopped parsnip
1/2 cup thinly sliced celery
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
3 1/2 cups low-salt chicken broth
1 cup water
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 cups uncooked wide egg noodles (about 4 ounces)
1 pound skinned, boned chicken breast halves, cut into 1-inch pieces
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Melt margarine in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add carrot, parsnip, and celery; sauté 3 minutes. Stir in flour. Gradually add broth, water, salt, and pepper, stirring with a whisk; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes. Add noodles and chicken, and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes. Stir in parsley.

Yield: 8 servings (serving size: 1 cup)

Looks good! I made a Chicken Corn Chowder the other day that was just soupy and a breakfast bread pudding today. Mine, I'm afraid came from Dream Dinners. A lovely place for me. Where you go and prepare your food and them bring it home to cook at your leisure. Here via Michele's!

Michele sent me here early this morning, Michelle.

That really looks great, Michelle. I might make that once it gets cold. I never seem to have soup in any other type of weather.

There is NOTHING as comforting as a good bowl of soup on a cold day. Thanks for this!
