Monday Meal

Since I have been sick, I have not had an apatite. This means my wonderful husband has had to cook. So, last night while he had his buddies over to watch football and eat pizza he made me chicken noodle soup. I was baffled! I was also wondering where he found how to make it, his answer Martha Stewart. It made me laugh because I never expected that to come out of his mouth.

The outcome, it turned out great and I promised I wouldn't tell his friends. He also surprised me by telling me he saved the link so I could share the recipe with all of you on my blog. So, along with the direct link above, here is the yummy chicken noodle soup recipe.

(serves 6 to 8)
3 quarts chicken stock
3 carrots, cut into 1/8-inch-thick rounds
Salt and pepper
8 ounce medium egg noodles
4 cooked and shredded chicken breasts
1/4 cup chopped fresh dill, or 1 tablespoon dried dill
1/4 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley

1. Place stock in a stockpot over medium-high heat, and bring to a simmer. Add carrots, and simmer until tender, about 6 min.
2. Meanwhile, bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil. Cook noodles until just tender, about 6 minutes. Drain noodles, and add them to the pot of stock, along with shredded chicken. Season with salt and pepper. Heat until very hot. When ready to serve, stir in dill and parsley.

As for me, I am feeling better and should be in full form by tomorrow or wednesday. I also plan to get blogging since I am not spending the majority of my day sleeping the illness off.
