Midnight Chicken Soup for Two

The other night two things happend 1. I could not sleep and 2. I was craving chicken noodle soup. The struggle is real when there are such few options for quick premade soups. I had some leftover chicken and fresh veggies from the garden and just made stock everything you could need for soup. I mean who doesn’t make soup at midnight when you can’t sleep!

Ingrediants
2 cups chicken stock
2 cups water
3 large carrots sliced
3 celery stalks sliced
2 cloves of garlic minced
1 tbsp of dried onion
1 tbsp butter
1 tsp curry powder (optional I used a little of this to give the broth a nice yellow color)
1 cup shredded chicken
Salt and Pepper to taste

Directions
1. In pot over medium heat melt butter
2. Add in garlic, celery, and carrots and saute till garlic is fragrent (approx 5min)
3. Add in stock, water, dried onion, and curry in with veggies stirring regularly
4. Bring to boil
5. Once boiling add in chicken and reduce to simmer and cook 15-20min
6. Allow to cool a little and salt and pepper to taste
7. ENJOY!

Quick and Easy and quite Delicious!

  

Peas for days!

One of my all time favorite treats are frozen peas! But there is nothing better then eating peas straight from the garden! Today we picked and shucked a ton of fresh pea pods!!! Our garden peas are sweet with just the right amount of crunch! It is so much fun to take our son out to our garden and pick fresh vegetables together! It makes eating veggies fun when you have grown and picked them youself! Can’t wait to freeze some and have them for a quick snack in the future!

  

The Garden is Bursting with Goodness

I can’t get over the huge amount of Kale, Lettuce,  Pruprle Basil, and Spinach we are harvesting! I had to share lettuce with a neighbor today we have so much! Love summer! So thankful for the ability to produce our own food!  So many great recipes to make this summer!
