National Soup Month

" Hearty Chicken Vegetable Soup"

Did you know that January is
" National Soup Month"
Yep...thats right.....
So I will be celebrating this month with some of my favorite soup recipes.
First, let me say that I am a nonsense kind of cook
I do not like ingredients that I normally do not use.
This soup is also delicious made with leftover Turkey.

Hearty Chicken Vegetable Soup

Leftover Roasting Chicken
2 stalks celery ( chopped)
1/2 c Onion ( chopped) or to taste
1 small summer squash ( chopped)
1 small zuchini ( chopped)
Baby carrots ( whole or cut in half)
1 box chicken stock or broth
2 chicken boullions
Salt and pepper to taste

In stock pot cover chicken with water, boullion and simmer until chicken falls off bone.
Strain broth and pull chicken from the bones cutting into smaller pieces.
Return chicken to pot and add chicken stock, onions , celery and carrots. Simmer until almost tender , then add the squash and simmer til done. Salt and pepper to taste.

Hope you Enjoy!



  1. Your Cranberry Nut Swirls, Look so tastey. Thanks for shareing your recipe. They would be great for Valentines Day! Just give the chilled cookie roll a dent and maybe a little extra shaping to make them look <3 shaped.
    Thank you so much, Debby (Wisconsin)
