Soup Sunday - Comfort for the Soul!
Soup is also good if you are feeling at little "puny." Greg has been "puny" all week with some type of bug. It was time to break out the crockpot and make a big batch of homemade soup. Tonight's soup was Roasted Chicken Vegetable. It was delicious and simple to make. It is a little twist to my white bean chicken soup.
I started out with a really good herb roasted chicken. I pulled off the breast and shredded the chicken for the soup. I was in Kroger on Saturday, so I picked up one of their Savory Roasted Herb whole chickens in their deli section. They are delicious and very moist. The nice thing about these chickens, you can use them for wraps, soups, tacos or just to eat on a sandwich. Plus, my little dog Farrah loves chicken so I make sure she gets a little.
I served up the soup with Greg's favorite club crackers and a few of the medium cheddar cheese slices. We love to have cheese and crackers with our soups.
My cute dishes are from Kate Spade. I have these cute dishes linked on my Amazon store at: https://www.amazon.com/shop/sweetyellowcornbread These plates are perfect for lunch plates or to put under your bowls. They are called there "pizza plates." I love Kate Spade dishes. They last for a long time and they are so darn cute!
