Chicken Soup, Because


I'd planned to bake a few pies today, but after my morning appointment and a stroll around the shopping plaza, I opted to make chicken soup instead. Autumn made me think of soup, and though it was a warm sunny afternoon, by the time we ate it was cool, dark, and rainy. Perfect.

I couldn't decide which of my ladies would be most tasty, so I picked up a big package of chicken thighs from Wegmans. Garlic. Onion. Mushrooms. Celery. Carrots. My kitchen smelled absolutely yummy with chicken baking and vegetable sauteing.

The chickens knocked at the door, but when I inquired, I found they had no interest in helping with the soup. "You've got to be kidding me!" said the first chicken. She was not impressed in the least. In fact, I thought I heard her say something about my intelligence, but I can't be entirely sure. Her look is telling though.

  1. I'm surprised you answered the door, and didn't get pecked!!! I can smell it all the way to CA.

    1. They certainly are interesting creatures. I haven't been pecked in a while now. I try to watch where my bare toes are though.

  5. I'm sure that your chickens will be happy to learn that on the date of this blogpost, I made beef stew. No chickens were harmed during the cooking of it.
