The weather here has been RIDICULOUS lately. Yesterday it was 81 degrees; this morning it was 35 degrees. Right now, it's a BEAUTIFUL 60-degrees out and sunny, but, unfortunately, the BF is coming down with the funk. So, with a crisper full of veggies that need to be used, I decided to make the BF some good old "Jewish penicillin" and whip up some homemade chicken noodle soup.
Homemade chicken noodle soup should ALWAYS start with homemade broth. Instead of using my standard chicken stock, I made a broth (stock is made from bones, broth is made from bones AND meat) by roasting a chicken with a few simple vegetables. Even better, the white meat from the roasted chicken is used in the soup itself, yielding a rich, delicious flavor.
So, is chicken soup REALLY good for sickness? Who knows? But, even if it isn't the miracle cure for feeling crummy, it sure does taste like it!
