This photo is displaying chicken noodle soup. What’s that where is the chicken?? Glad you asked. Entered the kitchen with all intentions of making chicken noodle soup. Indeed a hearty, warm delight appropriate for the cold, chilly weather. I have water boiling for the wholesome wheat egg noodles..Unfortunately I had not put much thought to the necessary ingredients. Noodles are boiled and rinsed with cool water. In reviewing the recipe I acquired from Google I quickly concluded this will not work. You see the recipe called for celery, I love celery but not cooked, carrots are great in a salad as a snack, in cake and juiced but cooked, I’ll pass. The recipe called for chicken breast, I only had boneless chicken thighs available. Okay, cannot throw out noodles as I really do not like wasting food. So, I store the cooked noodles in a storage bag for later use. Now I totally change up and begin the preparation for beef stew, again no interest in cooked carrots or celery. My recipe most likely won’t make the top of a cooking challenge but who needs that pressure?
Boiled beef chuck cut in cubes, as the beef got tender I added Mrs. Dash original blend, black pepper, white pepper, little garlic powder, minced onions and a can of Swanson beef broth. May sound odd but very flavorful. Years back I loved cutting up onions, garlic and grinding pepper. Now in the present I am quite content with using the already ground and chopped. I did labor over cutting up the potatoes, lol. When the meat and potatoes were completely cooked. I wasn’t quite satisfied, not enough carbohydrates for me. Considered rice which I love but too impatient to await it boiling. Oh wow, the noodles, yes that will do it. As I give this meal some thought I really should have vegetables, perhaps another day. So, you see this is chicken noodle soup, lol.
