chicken soup for the soul

today was a cold, rainy, relaxing sunday.  my bones were chilled. i needed some hot soup. chicken soup, actually. hold the matzo balls (this time).
if soup is your thing, give this recipe a try. it is simple but delish.
first: find a reliable recipe. i believe most of the women in my family use the one pictured here. i used it, too.

second helpings, please! a staple in jewish homes.

find a LARGE stock pot. add cold water and chicken thighs (or legs...or a soup bone, etc.). let it boil while you prep the rest. make sure to skim the fat off the top. 

now for the veggie prep!

throw it all in the pot and let it simmer for a few hours.  don't forget the S & P!!
hour 2.  take our the chieken before you serve.

yummy final product. add in some of the cooked chicken for protein.
serve with a side of fresh challah (for dunking!)
 enjoy! i hope this soup warms your soul!!
happy sunday!
