spinach chicken noodle soup
Remember that delicious chicken we had for dinner last night that my kids didn't eat? I used our leftovers to make this soup that they are all now enjoying. Actually, as my youngest daughter was enjoying hers, her older sister leaned over to her and whispered rather loudly, "You know you're eating spinach don't you?" Fortunately, that didn't spoil her meal. Delicious soup and so easy when you have leftovers on hand! Making this soup is speedy because the chicken, spinach and onions are already prepared with such great flavor that make a meal without much effort.
