I told JSarr last summer that I want to write a book for my kids of things I think they should know in life, and give them a reference, a source that they can go to when they are older, so here it is: our blog. I write a lot thinking of them.
Ellie and Abbie came down with a hard cough and wanted some chicken noodle soup, so it was time to make a crock-pot chicken noodle soup again. There are so many versions out there, and here is the one I am passing to my children.
Just what the doctor ordered. Just wish they had more of an appetite! We served it with homemade sourdough bread.
Note: I tend to add the salt additions at the very end, so at first my soup is bland. You can add it before or as it’s cooking, if you wish.
Update 4/17/13** I have been sauteing a handful of quartered garlic cloves with a couple of handfuls of kale in grapeseed oil (olive oil or coconut oil would work, too) and adding this at the beginning of the slow cooking process. Amazing! It’s really taken this recipe one step up! I am also salting at the beginning of the cooking process and becoming less afraid of a little salt. We use Himalayan salt for a lot of our cooking.
