The days are getting shorter, the temperatures are dropping and the holidays are fast approaching. That means, it’s officially soup season. Soup season is really the best! It’s warm and cozy and there are endless possibilities of soups to make during the season.
Today I want to share with you one of the most classic and universally loved soups. When people think of soup they automatically think of Chicken Noodle Soup. Chicken Noodle Soup is honestly the best. It is simple, clean and soul satisfying. There are so many ways that you can jazz up this soup, but the original version is just so good.
I made a large pot of soup last week when I was feeling under the weather and it was perfect. It warmed me up from the inside out and was just so comforting and relaxing.
If you’re into soup season like I am, I strongly encourage you to kick it off with this classic.
Happy Soup Making!
