I feel so torn right now between my love of summer and my desire to cozy up by the fire while watching feel-good holiday movies. I think the fuzzy slippers and my favorite warm sweaters are helping to sway me in the direction of sleeping with a spoon under my pillow and doing snow dances in hopes of seeing some of the fluffy white stuff. But the biggest motivation to wish for some cold weather and possibly even a snow day? The warm, delicious and comforting bowls of soup that are to be had!! If you read my blog year round then you know my family loves soup about any time of year. But cold weather? Well, it allows us to dial it up a notch to the truly satisfying soups that will warm us heart and soul!
One of the best things about soups besides wrapping your hands around a nice steaming bowl? How super easy they are to make in the slow cooker!! Adding in fresh veggies and juicy chicken is so easy when they can just slow cook away all day! And even better? Adding plenty of homemade tasting noodles that are such a simple way to make your soup that much more delicious and satisfying!
I’m sure we all have those go-to chicken noodle soup recipes in our dinner line-ups, but I promise you won’t be disappointed by this fresh tasting take on a classic! I used lots of fresh carrots and celery plus my favorite dried herbs to give it that rich delicious flavor. Then I added plenty of fresh squeezed citrus to give it a totally new take! Add plenty of chicken that becomes fall apart tender and finish it all off with the most import part of any chicken noodle soup…. Reames Homestyle Egg Noodles! It’s finally time for those hearty family dinners we all crave!
