Hey Lisa...Here's a good recipe for a quick and delicious chicken soup. You can add noodles as the recipe calls for, or rice or potatoes and vegetables to it. Yummmm.

INGREDIENTS
1 (2 to 3 pound) stewing chicken
2 1/2 quarts water
3 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons chicken bouillon granules
1/2 medium onion, chopped
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried marjoram
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1 bay leaf
1 cup diced carrots
1 cup diced celery
1 1/2 cups uncooked fine noodles

DIRECTIONS
In a large soup kettle, place chicken and all ingredients except noodles. Cover and bring to a boil; skim broth. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 1-1/2 hours or until chicken is tender. Remove chicken from broth; allow to cool. Debone chicken and cut into chunks. Skim fat from broth; bring to a boil. Add noodles; cook until noodles are done. Return chicken to kettle; adjust seasonings to taste. Remove bay leaf before serving.

We don't eat pork, but I'm sure they are delicious.


Last night I made the kids hamburgers and made my husband and I sauteed shrimp with vegetables.


It's so easy - just buy the large shrimp and sautee. Buy a bag of frozen mixed vegetables - not the plain old peas and carrots, but the fancier type with asparagus and other more exotic vegetables. Sautee them and combine the two - season to taste.
