Friday Recipe-Rainy Day Recipe

With all of the HEAVY rain we've received this past week here in Georgia, I found myself wanting to cook warm comfort foods for dinner. I don't cook a lot of hot soups in the summer, so once the weather starts to cool down Chicken Noodle soup is usually one of the 1st on our table.

This is a great recipe, because it has homemade noodles as an ingredient. My kids LOVE homemade noodles in anything, and you are bound to warm the hearts of those you love with this delicious recipe!



* 8 cups homemade chicken stock (or store bought)
* 1 tsp olive oil
* 1/2 onion diced
* 1-2 cloves of garlic diced finely
* 1 1/2 cups of carrots diced
* 3 stalks of celery diced
* 2 tsp good chicken bouillon (I use Herb Ox)
* 1 bay leaf
* Sea Salt and fresh cracked pepper, to taste
* 1/2 tsp dried thyme or basil
* 1 1/2 cup cooked chicken diced (I use meat from leftover roasted chicken)
* Fresh parsley, chopped

Sauté onions in olive oil until soft, about 3-4 minutes. Add garlic & cook for 30 seconds. Add broth & the remainder of ingredients. Cook over medium low heat for 1-2 hours.


* 2 cups of flour
* 3/4 tsp salt
* 1 egg
* 1/4 to 1/3 cup of milk

In mixing bowl combine flour, salt, egg and milk. Mix until you produce a slightly sticky ball of dough. Flour the counter and roll out dough to 1/8 inch thickness. You want them very thin because they thicken when cooked. Cut noodles (I use a pizza cutter) to desired size and place on wax paper. Let the noodles dry out on the counter for at least 1 hour before adding them to the soup.

About 30 minutes before serving soup, drop noodles in and cook. Add some fresh chopped parsley right before serving. Enjoy.
