Chicken Soup

Do you believe it is snowing again...i didn't know this was coming...pretty but....Need to give you something that will keep you warm and cure whatever is wrong with you...Chicken Soup!! Now when i cook i do not measure so i will give you the approximate amount but you can figure it out..
Chicken Soup
one good size chicken
4 carrots-big slices
2 onions, diced
3 stalks of celery-big slices
2 parsnip (this makes a big difference in flavor, trust me)-big slices
couple cloves of garlic
salt and pepper
couple dashes of dill (or use fresh)
Put all in a big pot and cover with water....simmer for a few hours (less if you just can't wait)
remove chicken from bones and put back into the here i put in a big can of good chicken broth (don't have to but it is nice)...taste and if needed add more herbs/spices...
serve over wide egg noodles and/or matzo balls.....Enjoy!!

When anyone would get sick in this house out would come the soup pot...if anything it made me feel better!! I am sending a big bowl over to my digi friend Deb...she has been sooooo sick!!

Dawn, love your new header, it is so cute. Love those little valentines coming out of the envelope. Now I just gotta say it, Go Giants!!! Its time for Brady to go down. Ha Ha. To bad I will be on the plane on my way back from Jana's during the Superbowl. But I'll be routing for those Giants on the plane.

Dawn, we're supposed to get some more snow tomorrow & on Friday. How about sending some of your yummy soup on over to my house? I've never, ever used parsnips; I'll have to give it a try. TFS!
Stay warm!
