Chicken Noodle Soup

 


When someone in your family, a friend, or neighbor is sick, there is nothing that says you care more than making them a fresh pot of homemade chicken noodle soup.   The feeling of being nurtured and loved penetrates the heart and soul, and will inevitably make them feel better.  The liquids rehydrate, the salt replenishes their electrolytes, and the food provides essential vitamins and proteins for nourishment.

It goes without saying that no one has to be sick to dish up this hearty soup for dinner. Serve with a salad, crusty bread, and hot sauce for a real kick.
