Chicken Noodle Soup #SundaySupper

Sunday, January 13, 2013

I can mark another dish off of my cooking bucket list! Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup. Happy Dance!

What a great way to celebrate today! Today (1/13/13) is #SundaySupper's 1st Birthday. Last February, I was invited to join the #SundaySupper Movement Family by Isabel from Family Foodie. When I participated in my first #SundaySupper, I made Slow Cooker Dr. Pepper & BBQ Roast Beef and there were a total of six people participating that day. (Isabel from Family Foodie, Jen from Juanita’s CocinaPam from The Meltaways  me, Big Bear's Wife Nicole from Daily Dish Recipes and Carla from Chocolate Moosey)

Last week there were 49 Food Blogger participating in #SundaySupper. Isabel has done such and amazing job with #SundaySupper! All of the #SundaySupper bloggers have.

If you're not familiar with #SundaySupper, let me take a second to explain it. It was started to show the importance of Sunday Supper, spending time with your friends and family around the table. Each week we have a new theme, we sign up to "bring dishes", then on Sunday we all share our "dishes"/recipes on our blogs, link to each other and then have a fabulous twitter chat at 7pm EST. We share recipes, we share cooking tips, we share everything.

Since this is the Birthday Celebration for #SundaySupper, we were asked to choose a #SundaySupper recipe that had been made by another #SundaySupper member over the past year. I choose Veronica's Chicken Noodle SoupVeronica blogs over at My Catholic Kitchen. I've been saving her Chicken Noodle Soup, in my "to make soon", file for a while now.  It's the perfect combination of chicken, veggies, and noodles. I love chicken noodle soup with egg noodles! After reading the recipe for the 100th time, I still left out the wine and heavy cream, not on purpose. Oops... but still, it was fantastic. I was so proud of myself for making Chicken Broth/Stock from scratch :)
