The REAL Chicken Soup for the Soul

Picture

Our family is sick! Like the whole family, moms, dads, kids, everyone, Mama Dawn had some asthma complications and spent a few days in the hospital. Oddly enough mama carol has stayed well, So this evening she set out to make her family famous Pot of healing chicken noodle soup. It’s funny because I could use the same ingredients to make a pot of soup for myself and it just doesn’t taste the same.

 I fully believe it’s because Love has a flavor, though I use the same ingredients, I just don’t make it with the love that she puts into it (this is also evident in her pancakes,and grilled cheese.) There is something about the heat, and the steam rising up to meet your face that helps to clear your mind, body, & soul.  There is a healing that comes with moms pot of soup, I don’t doubt that she puts some prayer in there as well, which contributes to the healing.

There is no real “recipe” but here is what Mama Carol usually puts in her Chicken Noodle Soup:
Chicken Breast (or she will boil chicken pieces and then strip it from the bones)
1 Carton Chicken Stock
1 Can Tomato Soup
1 Can Corn
1 Bag Wide Egg Noodles (cooked)
1 Can Diced Tomatoes
5 Stalks of Diced Celery
1 Large Onion
5 Sliced Carrots
8 Eggs (My sis & I’s favorite part!)

Cook pasta and set aside
Combine other ingredients and allow veggies to cook through
Crack eggs into bowl and mix with for or whisk
Pour eggs by spoonful into boiling soup 
Add Noodles
Enjoy!

UPDATE: Mama April & her son are doing much better today 🙂 ( we have no doubt it was the soup.)

  • I hope Mama Dawn is better now April.

    A Jewish friend of mine brought round chicken casserole once, when I was unwell. He brought it in the saucepan, on the floor of his car. Bless him, it leaked everywhere during the journey!

    I wasn’t well and he explained that it was the Jewish penicillin. I have craved chicken casserole when under the weather ever since!

    He said that it was made with love and I think you’re right. It’s better when someone else makes it for you. 🙂
