chicken noodle soup

The hubs returned from SXSW on Wednesday with some sort of plague. He was so sick while there that he had spent an entire day in bed. ¬†This may not sound that appalling to some of you, but my husband is super immunity man.* In the time I’ve known my husband, he’s NEVER spent a day in bed, even when sick (which is rare enough in itself).

*His other super power is sleep anywhere man. But that is a story for another day

As pretty much every North American (and maybe European?) person knows, there isn’t anything better than Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup when you are feeling under the weather. Unfortunately, he was in his hotel room, at the whim of the greasy hotel restaurant food. So, when he got home Wednesday, I made it my mission to get some much needed chicken-y noodle-y goodness into him. And, to make enough so he would have leftovers at the office the next day.*

*Which he promptly decided to forgo, in exchange for Tim Horton’s soup, but, again, that is a story for another day.

This recipe is adapted from epicurious, and it is even easier than it first appears. I had a store bought rotisserie chicken for dinner the night before, and I used the leftovers for the soup. It’s truly a simple meal. The hardest part is chopping the vegetables. And I’m pretty sure that part is only hard if you are allergic to raw celery and carrots like I am!
