SOUP!

RE: SOUP!
The soup has been much appreciated this cold winter!

I'm going to share a very generic recipe from my wife's "Grandma Eva." She passed several years ago at 93. Every Monday night we went to her house for amazing chicken soup in addition to breaded baked chicken legs, stuffed mushrooms, incredible salad, side of pasta, broccoli, etc.

My lovely wife makes the soup every winter and it goes something like this:

Take a whole chicken- we like the cleaned purdue chicken in the bag- for 9.99 it's just easier. I imagine fresher is better if you have the time to put in...

Get a huge pot and boil it for 30 min. to create the stock.

Then pour a few ladels in a deep pan and bake the chicken at 350 for one hour.

Chop the "trinity" onion, celery and carrots to preference.

Half gets ground in the food processor and half remains in larger chunks.

Add this to the broth you made and boil it to preferred texture. Add salt, black pepper and a little oregano/parsley to taste...

Separately boil your Orzo, Stelline or Alphabets (little ones love this and it's fun to spell little messages like "I love you" and You're my world." So much fun!

After the chicken is done pick all the good meat off the bones- be sure to cut away fat and tendons...

Toss the veggies and chicken into the broth. Do not add the pasta as it will soak up too much stock.

We serve buffet style. Each person scoops their own pasta to preference and the soup mixture separately. Parmesian and crushed red pepper are added to taste.

I guarantee that you can't have one bowl!

It'll warm your soul on a cold night...

Oh, it's even better with a glass or two of red wine or as grandma Eva used to do- 1/2 red wine, 1/2 7-up!

Enjoy Bubbalites!
