rainy day….and a bowl of hot chicken noodle soup

Oh, how I love these rainy days. We just don’t get enough of them here in San Diego. I really love soup…I love making soup, but for some reason, I just can’t bring myself to make it unless it is raining. Soup and rain….they just go together. Don’t you think? Today I made chicken noodle soup. I threw in some broccoli at the last minute. Mm-mm-m-m-m. It is so good. Tomorrow, I think I will make chili. Chili with some homemade cornbread. I will post pictures and the recipe tomorrow.

If it’s still raining, I may even do some baking. That’s if my knee isn’t causing me grief like it has been lately. I hate getting older….with age, comes aches and pains and crackly, crunchy knees. But that is an entirely different post. hahahhahahaha.

I’m sure you all have your favorite chicken noodle soup recipe, but here is mine….simple but comforting and oh so yummmmmmm.

chickynoodlesoup

Boil one large chicken breast and one thigh in about 6 cups of water.
shred the chicken and add it back to the water.
Add seasoning salt and lots of black pepper. Add about 2 tsp of soy sauce.
Add some broken pasta and 1/4 cup of rice. Let it cook till pasta and rice are done.

That’s it! Throw in some veggies if you want, but it’s great without.  Fill up a bowl, enjoy and sit and watch the rain.

  1. First off, if you like this crappy weather, why the hell do you live in San Diego??!! Oh, yeah, that’s right, you have a good job here. Well, when you retire, you can move to the Northwest–Seattle, perhaps. You’ll get plenty of grey skies and rain. Second, your chicken soup looks good, but I think mine’s better. Want to have a cook-off? 🙂
