Simple Homemade Soup On A Cold and Quiet December Night


A simple chicken and vegetable soup was all we needed tonight. Warm and comforting to all!


Simmer leftover chicken and some vegetables, your choice, in enough water to cover. Add a little salt and pepper. Simmer about 30 minutes until vegetables are tender. Remove chicken and cut up/shred it. Chop vegetables. Return to stock. Add some baby spinach, herbs. For herbs, I like to use parsley and tarragon in chicken soup. Cook just a few minutes until tender.

  6. Thankfully, I made an awesome stock from the Thanksgiving leftovers because Marion has been going soup crazy! (at 91, she makes a mean soup!) Your soup looks heavenly, Linda. Perfect for the longest night of the year:) Can you believe tomorrow is the first day of winter!

    I'm sorry to say my eye is not mending as quickly as I, or the doctors had hoped. The medicine mix-up didn't help at all!!! It doesn't seem like I'll be up and running before the new year so I wanted to drop by (unbeknownst to Marion, also my eye guard:) to wish you and yours a Safe and Happy Holiday. It's been wonderful popping in to visit this year and I look forward to visiting you and your wonderful blog in 2012!!! (wow that's weird to type:) Louise.
