Quick and Easy Chicken Noodle Soup



Another soup recipe, but it’s still hot outside you say.  Yes, I know that, but you will thank me when the temperature drops and you have this quick and easy Chicken Noodle Soup to fix! Cool weather is just right around the corner.  I love fall, it’s the only time of the year I want to clean and bake.  I bake all the time but it’s strange for me to want to deep clean the house.  I won’t even begin to tell you how many messes the kids make.  I thought it got better when they were older, I was sadly mistaken, deceived, whatever word you want to use.  As of right now the living room floor is totally picked up!  I want to take a picture and send it to my friend Amber who dropped some books off the other day when we were purging all the kids clothes.  Like ALL their clothing was on the living room floor. She has been scarred for life 🙂

Why is it noone ever shows up when your house is clean? Oh wait, because my house is only clean like 1 hour of the day!  Seriously, it’s scary what the kids can do to our house in less than 24 hours, and since we homeschool, they’re always here to make messes.  Maybe I should spend less time blogging and more time teaching my kids to clean since obviously I have failed at that.  Sorry for the rant.  I try to control myself and be positive, but sometimes Negative Nelly comes out.  She busted out and is loud today, so blame her.  LOL!

Moving on to the recipe……

 This is LittleChef2’s most requested soup and lucky for me it’s fast if you use already cooked chicken.  He can eat the whole pot all by himself!  I use homemade chicken broth that I keep frozen.  The flavor is amazing!

Quick Chicken Noodle Soup

The thing I love most about fixing anything at home is the customization.  You add what you want, take out what you don’t want.  So please feel free to add celery, more vegetables, different herbs, or take out the carrots.  One thing you’ll never see on this blog is a recipe with celery, unless it’s a typo. I hate, detest, loathe, despise, dislike celery, even the smell of it makes me gag.  I think you get the picture here…. I’m still trying to recall what horrible recipe I ate celery in to make me have such hatred against it.  Wish I had a hatred for french fries, my waist would thank me. 🙂

If you have an amazing recipe that INCLUDES celery, please let me know in the comments and I’ll actually try it.  Yeah, I’m fearless like that, LOL!
