but please give me a
bowl of grandma's
homemade chicken
noodle soup!

The weather is cool, most of the leaves are gone. Soup is on the stove along with wool socks on
the feet. I miss my grandparent's chicken soup. My grandfather made the noodles from scratch cutting each noodle by hand. I can see the pot simmering on the stove, the windows in the kitchen fogged from the steam. It was a cozy wonderful time in my childhood. May you all have a
safe, warm, autumn weekend!

  4. Homemade noodles!!!?! Whoa.

    Tho it's still in the 80s where I live the soups I can eat year 'round. Great addition to the 55rs of today!

    My 55 is a double whammy this week, two for the price of one. Of course, as always, you need to scroll down below my Friday's Show n Tell.

    I am a sucker for my husbands Italian Wedding Soup. :) It is what I know I will want when I'm sick and dying and don't know what I want.

  6. I love soup and soup weather - just another reason why autumn is so great!
