I wish I had learned earlier in life just how easy it is to make soup. The first time I ever made soup wasn't until I was living on my own for the first time. Up to that point I thought making soup involved dumping a can of Campbell’s Alphabet soup into a pan and heating it up on the stove.
Early on in my living on my own days I invited my parents over for Thanksgiving dinner. Afterwards I was left with a lot of turkey- too much turkey. It was then that I discovered a recipe in an old cookbook. The recipe was for “Leftover Turkey Soup.”
It was pretty easy. I used the carcass of the turkey to make the soup broth. After the broth was done I added onions, carrots, celery and noodles. A few spices were added and before long I was enjoying a delicious bowl of soup.
Since then I’ve made all kinds of soup. Recently I made a big pot of chicken noodle soup. It was the perfect meal on a cold, snowy day.
