pantry challenge - day 6

Sundays are our quiet day (well as quiet as it can be with two toddlers) - haha. I knew we would just have cereal for breakfast and leftovers for lunch but I wanted to make something delicious and warm for dinner. 

I thought Chicken Noodle Soup sounds great! I went to see how much chicken broth I had in the pantry - 2 cups was it. What was I going to do? 

I remembered I had frozen the bones of a whole chicken to make chicken broth myself at some point. That some point became today! I had two chicken breasts and the bones plus carrots, onions and seasonings. 

I used a bunch of recipes to come up with what became our Chicken Noodle Soup. I did not have celery nor do I care for it cooked. 

Ingredients: 7 cups chicken broth, 2 shredded chicken breasts, 5 carrots chopped, 1 onion chopped, 1 cup pasta, dried basil, dried oregano, salt and pepper. 


Doesn't that look so good?! It was delicious! I will add more broth to the leftovers to stretch it further. 

Oh and I served it with garlic bread - great combo! 


I needed something sweet...but not too sweet for dessert. I have lots of cookbooks so I pulled one out. Freedom Farms cookbook - Lisa King has great recipes. I love them all! 

Buy this book - you will not be sorry! 

These cookies did not disappoint. Next time, I will make them smaller since they spread together. haha my bad! 

What did you eat today? Make any new recipes?
