I’ve been traveling around lately…like a lot.  It’s been really hard to get back in the swing of things this week but I took some time to rest up and I THINK I’m ready to rock.  Three cities in two weeks (not counting the one I live in, either!) and lots of information to take in…and I skipped around NYC with the best of the best from Better Homes and Gardens.  Life isn’t too shabby around here lately.  But all of that being social does suck the life out of me…I love getting out and meeting people but I sometimes wish we could all just hang out on my sofa with fluffy socks, a big blanket and a bucket of buttery popcorn or chocolate chip cookies. Which is about the speed I’m moving right now.

On the last few days of my trip, I really was looking forward to coming home and hugging my family. Hanging out in my own house…with my own shower…my own shampoo and my “My Pillow.” (Boy, did I miss that thing!) And I was so hungry, like famished…like I lost 5 pounds in two weeks and I knew I had some of the Best Chicken Noodle Soup just waiting for me in the freezer when I got home.  It’s the ultimate in comfort foods…up there next to mac and cheese but I really liked leaving those 5 pounds back in New York so I chose the healthier of the two options.

This is really the Best Chicken Noodle Soup on the planet.  I based the recipe on my classic Chicken Soup recipe but added some egg noodles to the mix because sometimes you just want carbs. Carbs release endorphins and make you happy…at least that’s the story I’m going with.

The Very Best Chicken Noodle Soup is super easy to make.  You start by sautéing your veggies until soft. Then, add your cooked chicken and pour in the stock.

Once it comes to a boil, add the noodles and cook until al dente.  It’s ready in about 10-15 minutes total and freezes beautifully for quick weeknight dinners….if you don’t have the patience to wait 10-15 minutes for your homemade chicken noodle soup. 🙂

I like to serve the best Chicken Noodle Soup with a hearty salad packed with fruit and nuts.  A lighter green salad would be nice too but when you’ve been starving for two weeks straight…sometimes you need a little substance.  And a big fudgie brownie.
