Chicken Noodle Soup for the Sick Boyfriend’s Soul

by Brittany on August 1, 2011

Out of the lunchbox & into my tummy–

lastweek 002

Romaine lettuce salad with red onions, kalamata olives, and black beans. On the side—I enjoyed some cherries, a veggie mix of carrots & tomatoes, with some 365 brand Cheddar rice crispettes

Now onto the other goods :D


I admit to using this recipe as means to acquire brownie points during two particular instances in my life:

1. A few months ago when my mother came down with a horrible cold & I wanted to play “favorite child.”

2. The other night when Will was restricted from leaving his house due to a monster-of-a-sickness and I wanted to play “favorite girlfriend.”

Now, I am here to share this terrific home-style chicken noodle soup recipe so that you can win some brownie points of your own Winking smile
