Home Made Chicken Soup


I wish I could tell you thatís me slaving over a hot stove making my famous chicken soup. Itís not, itís my fabulous hubby, and his famous home made chicken soup is oh so yummy. I can smell it through the house and the anticipation of enjoying a nice hot bowl starts to swirl in my head. Standing is difficult for me but I can help chop up the ingredients sitting at the kitchen table. I call my husband fabulous because he comes home after a hard days work and cooks for me. Iím not proud of that, itís because I am not able to do it. I am always there, and I am a good supervisor. But when it comes to his specialty, or I guess I should say one of his specialties, chicken soup he needs no supervision of advice from me. And trust me I always have really good advice. He just doesnít think so or listen when it comes to his chicken soup. It all starts with the roasted chicken he brings home for dinner, now it is a partially exposed skeleton with meat for the picking. I could lie and say I pick the meat to the bone, but the truth is he does it. He opens the can of mixed vegetable too. I watch sometimes to try to get a glimpse of the herbs he so secretively uses. I smell garlic for sure, and celery seed, maybe some minced onion but I donít really think so. I know it sure tastes good. He puts some soup pasta in there too. He uses different soup pasta, so as to get the variety thing going and not to get bored with the same old noodles. The favorite part of the whole ordeal is when he calls me to the table. You know a nice hot bowl of home made chicken soup soothes the soul so they say. Well it does comfort as it goes down. Yum, itís one of my favorite dishes.

I've got to say that this sounds absolutely delicious! You're very blessed to have such a talented hubby.

From a reader's standpoint, it would be more pleasing to have this separated into several shorter paragraphs.

I can identify with this because my first husband was a professional chef and a much better cook than me. Being a good cook is a wonderful gift (hospitality?) and I applaud your hubby for putting his talents to good use. Thanks for sharing.

It's wonderful to have a hubby so willing to take care of you. I'm blessed with one also.

I think some reformatting would make it more readable.

Love the wonderful thoughts.
