Homemade Chicken Soup

I know it's too hot for soup now. Well, at least in LA it is. In my apartment it is. But I made this soup, long ago, in February. The weather was chilly, the classes weren't as demanding, and I had a sick Brian on my hands, who had never ever had homemade chicken soup. Ever. This made me sad. Everyone should experience homemade chicken soup! But of course, I had never made homemade chicken soup. A little blog here, some google there, and a few calls to mom later, I came up with something pretty good.
Veggies for Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup
Nothing to it! A turnip, some parsnips, carrots, celary, onion, and some parsley made up the base of the broth - along with some chicken, of course.

I let this boil for a few hours, and eventually got this...

Once the chicken was cooked, I removed it, along with all of the vegetables. At this point, the veggies are good to go, becuase the flavor is pretty much gone into the broth. So, I shred the chicken, added some egg noodles, and some freshly chopped celery and carrots and let that boil until the noodles were ready.

It was pretty delicious. And, I do think it made Brian feel better!

My only regret is that I wish I made more in a bigger pan, because for all the hours
it took to make, it was gone in minutes.

It looks so yummy!
We only ever have homemade chicken soup and we make chicken spread with some of the chicken after. It's so yummy...

this reminds me of my daddy. Homemade soup is like a hobby for him. The day after Thanksgiving he pulls the turkey apart and makes gallons of soup!
Thanks for posting your version. It makes me a little home sick, but also fills me with warm memories.

I make my soup almost the exact same way, my grandmother taught me. My own little spin...I put the veggies in a cheesecloth tied with kitchen twine, so it's easy to toss when the soup is done. Less fishing out. Sometimes I do the same with the chicken, too. Less messy that way!
