creamy greek chicken noodle soup
I’ve got spring fever, so I’m just going to blame that for my lack of interest in blogging right now. To be honest I feel like that’s a healthy thing for me right now though; I’m enjoying so many other things in life and not worrying so much about getting certain posts out each week. I’ve been staying up late reading, I’ve been enjoying time with Evelyn who is just so happy and so badly wants to stand up and go, I’ve been spending a lot of time with family as we have three family birthdays this month, and I’ve been working a lot. I’ve been planning for Easter. I have a hankering to start some major spring cleaning out of closets (although this might not happen until after tax season). Gerrit and I (although mostly Gerrit so far) have started some major projects in our backyard.
All that to say–we’ve been busy, and aside from the fact that it’s still tax season and that I feel like I’m losing my mind some days, it’s been a good kind of busy. (Exhibit A of losing my mind: I couldn’t even remember to bring my grandmother’s birthday present to her birthday celebration. Exhibit B: The second time I roasted chicken for this soup I ended up forgetting about it on the counter ALL DAY and we had to go to Chick-fil-a for dinner.) It’s been a taking care of our life and enjoying sunshine and feeling inspired kind of busy.
Ok, where was I going with this? Yes…soup. I made this soup weeks ago. Maybe even months ago, on one of the nights when we had some rare winter snow. To be honest I think chicken noodle soup is a perfect soup for spring though, especially this one with its bright lemon flavor. It’s a light yet cozy soup, and from the time this one hit my mouth there was no question–this is the best chicken noodle soup I’ve ever had. The egg noodles (as opposed to regular noodles) are so tasty, the lemon makes it shine, and the egg that you add makes the soup broth creamy and addicting.
I hope you are having a lovely and inspiring spring time. I’m going to go back to stepping away from my computer more and enjoying all of the lovely things going on in my life.
