heart warming yumminess

There's nothing on earth quite like it.

Homemade chicken vegetable soup.

The stock was made with chicken jelly, saved and frozen from the last chicken I roasted, water and a chicken style stock cube. The Massel brand is the best. (Vegetarian, so no actual chicken)

Vegetables added were carrot, celery, onion and garlic.
A little worcestershire sauce for added flavour, some tomato sauce for even more flavour.
A good sprinkle of dried parsley.

Lots and lots of yummy little pasta shapes.
Simmer and occasionally stir for about an hour.
Excuse me now, while I keep on eating.....


  1. Golly but you sure live well.

    And what a show-off. And poor RH with his can opener. It'll be electric in Paradise. See who's smug then.

  2. Ooooh I love adding Worcestershire sauce to soups and casseroles - you do realise, dear River, that your pictorial blogs are becoming very addictive, don't you?

  3. Yummo!
    We'll be there about 7-ish, K?

  4. Dear Kath, for a moment there I almost thought you could cook but adding sauce to soup doesn't qualify.
    River, this blog is getting as bad as Gone Chocco, I'm hungry now.

  5. R.H.; canned soup tastes like cans. Doesn't matter what vegetables are in them they all taste the same. At least in home made soups, carrots still taste different from the celery, and the onions are are recognisable flavour.

    Kath; The pictures do help a lot, don't they.

    Jayne; see you at 7. Of course I eat at 6....

    JahTeh; glad to please.
