When the chill hits the air, my husband starts looking for chicken soup for lunch.
A little history. This man normally works from 7am until quitting time with no break for lunch - hard manual labor (He's currently remodeling a bathroom). I don't know how he does it. I'd pass out if I went that long without eating!
But last winter, I had some leftover soup one day. He came home midday to walk the dog, and he decided to have the soup heated up in the microwave.
Thus was born a new tradition.
So now, when I make chicken soup, I make a lot extra so he can have a week's worth of lunches.
He's a plain tastes kind of guy, so my soup is fairly simple.
Carrots, celery, garlic and herbs into into the pot.
Add the chicken and pour into these cool little storage cups.
Depending on whether he's having rice or noodles, I make those and store separately so they don't soak up all the broth and turn to mush.
I get lots of "good wife" points for this.
So, let's chat. DO you have a favorite chicken soup recipe? Any recommendations for lunch?
