The weather has turned cold (well cold for South Texas) and its been raining.
I mean its rained for a few days straight making this gal cold and in need of warm food.
I remember as a child when it got cold my mother would always make a huge pot of
veggie soup. It would last us days… yes days!
She would add every kind of veggie she had. She never had meat in it.. just a little salt pork for flavoring.
As kiddos, we would just eat it up with crackers.. it was warm comfort food!
I decided to change this old childhood favorite a little..
Chicken veggie Soup
There’s not really any measurements for this recipe. You just add what you have!
Oh, and before I forget….. I MADE THIS IN MY CROCKPOT!
This is what I did:
I placed a whole cut up chicken in the crockpot.
Added water to fill it up..
Cut up some onion, celery, and a few carrots (2)… added them in.
Salt and pepper
Turned on high and let it cook…
( I left the house, went to work.. came home 6 hours later)
An hour before I served it up, I :
cut and washed a fourth head of cabbage, sliced, and added to the chicken.
Added a bag of frozen green beans…
tasted to see if it needed more salt or pepper… added a little more..
Then added a small amount of Dreamfield pasta..
( my mamma always added noodles to hers)
30 minutes later it was ready to eat!
Yummy, comforting S meal!
