Chicken Noodle Soup

Year 8-Day 50: Today, I am grateful for chicken noodle soup. 

It is an American staple. Campbell's makes a quick version most of us ate as children and some keep it in our pantries as adults. It is said to have healing qualities. It is a comfort food for many. Chicken noodle soup warms us, body and soul. 

There is no one recipe in our house, although my family loves the version I make with Mrs. Reemes noodles and a rotisserie chicken. The more noodles the better. 

When your body starts to ache and you don't know what to make for dinner...chicken noodle soup is always a good choice. Some of the ingredients have been shown to be effective in the battle against' winter illnesses.

Soup is usually easy to prepare and feeds a crowd. It makes it popular with all ages. I was reminded of these words spoken by Jesus. 

 "For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home." -Matthew 25:35

Soup is a way to extend a welcome to another person. Hospitality is important. Keeping it simple is a good approach. 

Today, I am grateful for chicken noodle soup.
