quick and easy chicken noodle soup
This soup was a continuation of my friends' kindness yesterday. When my friend Julie brought my little boy home from playing at their house all day she brought dinner- homemade chicken noodle soup, soft sourdough bread and salad. I always say I don't need anything and I'm fine because I can usually deal with whatever comes but it was so nice and touching. I felt loved and that feels good! I wouldn't have made dinner and as it turns out my kids wanted dinner- go figure. This soup tasted SOOOOO good. I really like the seasonings and was drawn to the big chunks of carrots- I love cooked carrots. There really is something to soup when you're not feeling well. I have the best friends ever.
