Mama's Chicken Noodle Soup

We're still in the throws of a chilly winter.  The calendar has turned to spring, but the rain continues.  In fact, we got a second dose of hail this past Monday.  I had to laugh at my kids.  The word hail means nothing to them as they raced out to play in the "snow."

So my meal plans are still including lots of homemade soups.  There's few things I love more than a simmering pot of soup with a piece of crusty bread at the end of the day.

Wanna make it even better?  Find a way to make it in the crockpot.

That's how Mama's Chicken Noodle Soup came about.  A way to prepare a rich, warm homemade soup in minutes that could cook throughout the day and be ready when we needed it.  In fact, this makes a wonderful soup to prepare on a Sunday morning and have ready for guests after church.  With all it's flavors and nutrition, this soup is perfect for stretching the budget and still extending hospitality in your home.
Mama's Chicken Noodle Soup

Yummm, sounds delicious! I just made my own chicken noodle soup on Tuesday! I just threw things together and it turned out great! It was the typical chicken noodle but I did add mushrooms, it tasted great. Hubby asked if I'm going to can it, and thought it was a really good idea!
