Soup Season is finally here! And that makes my family very happy, they love soups. Stay tuned to the blog for new versions of my old favorites, but let’s stick to the old family favorite – Chicken Noodle Soup – for the first of these chilly, Fall days!
Making soup seems to wrongly intimidate a lot of people. It is time consuming, but it is very worth a hearty dish that never goes out of season. My childhood memories of soup are all about Avgolemono or lemon rice soup, my mother made it once a week during the colder months and always when we were sick! Also known as Greek Penicillin, it seemed to have cured us faster than antibiotics. Avgolemono soup always left us with a special warm feeling in both our hearts and stomachs.
Here is the recipe to a steaming, hearty bowl of Chicken Noodle Soup. It’s a classic that is easy, and will warm you to the bone. This is the old fashion way to make soup. But slow cookers work well for tons of people who are short on time, and need a fast, hot meal that will last all week long.
Serve it with a hunk of good French bread and it is a complete meal! The best thing about soup is that it’s the perfect left-over. You can refrigerate it, and freeze it, and just simply reheat to re-experience the warm, home-like, hug that is the classic Chicken Noodle Soup!
