Craving...Banana Bread and Chicken Noodle Soup!

So I had a little cooking/baking going on this weekend. I was craving Banana Bread and then Chicken Noodle Soup!

I got the Banana Bread Recipe from AllRecipes.com, they have so many to choose from! But I made the Chicken Soup from Scratch, here is my recipe:

Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

1.5 lb. Chicken (I used Chicken Breasts as it was all I had and it turned out YUM!)
8 Cups Water
4 Chicken Bouillons
3 Large Carrots, peeled and sliced
1/2 Onion cut into large chunks
2 Cloves Garlic, sliced
1 Bag Egg Noodles
salt and pepper to taste

In a large pot, pour water and add bouillion and uncut chicken. Boil until chicken is done. Remove chicken, dice or shred and return to pot. Add remaining ingredients, except noodles. Simmer for 20 minutes. Add Egg Noodles. Soup is ready when noodles are done.

*Some people prefer dark meat chicken as it has more flavor. I just prefer white meat and it still had a wonderful flavor.


So my soup came out so good I had 5 (GULP!) bowls throughout the day! Oh and it made a HUGE pot. After my 5 bowls and the kids each had a few bowls, (DH is not a soup eater) we still froze a big gallon bag full, gave a jar to my mom and had another big jar in the fridge. It was alot!

And don't be afraid to add ingredients or alter this recipe. It is very basic and you can't really mess it up.
