Chicken Noodle Soup

Finally, a winter storm is predicted for our area tonight into tomorrow morning. We shall see.

On Saturday, I made chicken broth using the bones I had in the freezer from a couple of roasted chickens we had. I also had a bag of vegetable scraps in the freezer. Parsley stems, onion skins, carrot ends and skins, and the tops and some stray stalks of celery. I added peppercorns, salt, and water to the pot. I poached some chicken breast to use for the meat in the soup. The stock simmered for over 2 hours. Once it cooked, I strained it and waited until Sunday to proceed. I cut up the chicken meat and put it aside to add to the finished soup

On Sunday, I sauteed chopped onions, carrots, and celery in oil. I added the strained broth and brought that to a boil. Next, I added mixed frozen vegetables along with frozen spinach. The chicken meat was added. The seasonings I used were salt, pepper, thyme, and a squeeze of lemon at the end.

I prepared the noodles and put them in a water container until tonight when Chris added them to the soup when it was heating up.

A perfect bowl of soup for dinner tonight!
