I have loved chicken noodle soup forever!
It seems to be one of those comfort foods that is acceptable year ’round. Chicken soup is as welcome to me in July as it is in January. I like various types of chicken soup without noodles but every once in awhile I really want the real thing. When I got the low carb egg noodles right I knew that chicken soup was on the menu!
I grew up in the 1960s and back then everything was out of a can. My mom made me chicken noodle soup often but she either had to use a can opener or rehydrate it, depending on the brand that was on sale that week. When I was an adult and discovered cookbooks I realized that you could actually make your own soup!
This would be amazing with homemade chicken stock but I just used the kind I keep on hand. Things have been a little hectic around here lately and things like chicken stock, no matter how delicious, are not on my to do list.

Life Gets Crazy and I Want Comfort Food
For some reason when all of my kids were small I thought that my life would calm down when they grew up. The truth is that it just gets more hectic only you don’t get to make them take a nap or sit in a corner. If ONLY we parents could make our adult kids take naps and sit in corners!
My oldest daughter is going through a divorce and she’s moved back home with the 3 kids. Meanwhile I have a 21 year old in college to be a nurse, an 18 year old getting ready to graduate and head down to College Station to attend Texas A & M, ?a 16 year old that is working on his driver’s license, and a 13 year old that thinks she’s 21. My oldest son and his wife and baby are getting ready to move to Okinawa for a few years (military) so heavy emotions there… another son is stationed in Korea (also military) and things are a little shaky in the world as far as I’m concerned… AND I have another son in the Navy who has a job that we don’t discuss. My stepdaughter is graduating from culinary school next month but she’s not part of the havoc at the moment.
If you were counting that’s 8 kids, 4 grandkids, an in-law, and a stepkid. My husband and I are blessed all the way to Crazytown. I wouldn’t have it any other way. Thank GOD Victorian architects didn’t believe in open, flowing spaces in homes or no one would ever have any privacy here!
So, if I say that I need a regular fix of comfort food you’ll understand, right?
Herbes de Provence is a mixture of rosemary, thyme and other herbs. The mixtures change from brand to brand- some contain fennel, some don’t. Some contain lavender, some don’t.
