Quick (Cheaters') Chicken Noodle Soup
I love chicken noodle soup, I just don't like the time it takes to cook up a real batch from scratch. So, here's my recipe for cheater's CN soup: 1 Mrs. Grass chicken noodle soup "nugget" 1 Mrs. Grass chicken noodle soup packet of flavorings Feed Mrs. Grass' thin and skimpy "noodles" to the birds Follow Mrs. Grass' package recipe for making soup but dump everything in before bringing to a boil: 4 cups water, "nugget" (shaped like an egg) and packet of flavorings Add one cup frozen peas Meanwhile: if you like carrots, cut up half a pound in coin size, par-boil, then add to "soup" mix Keep fire low. When simmer level is reached, add four large hands-full of large-size egg noodles Add one chicken flavor boullion cube and cover pot Simmer for 20 minutes or so, until noodles are tender. Taste broth and add salt and pepper as needed. This recipe does not include chicken. If you want a deluxe version, add some shredded chicken from a left-over broast picked up at the supermarket. Delish!
