Well last night I made my very first real chicken soup! It wasn't completely from scratch in that I did not have time to roast or boil a whole bird, but I did start with just onions, garlic, chicken, stock, carrots, celery, rice, and thyme. It turned out great! And I didn't use a recipe, I just used what seemed the appropriate amount of ingredients for where I was trying to go. I am very proud of myself and excited for fall with soup. My grandma always told me I would be a good cook because I come from a long line of good cooks (she is the best!). I never believed her until recently, it does feel sort of like I have tapped into a stream of memory.

I used to make a pretty mean pot of chicken soup from scratch - boiling the chick and all (but I had to have Graeme debone the chick, 'cause I just couldn't handle it). I haven't cooked chicken soup in years - at least as long as we've been in this house (5 years). You've inspired me to try it again - now I just have to be my bread maker from work...
