Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup for a Rainy Spring Day

First of all, HA!  It definitely does not feel like Spring in Wisconsin this April.  Last year we were basking in 80 degree weather.  This year it’s snowed multiple times in March, and April has been consistently below average in the 30s.  We have had the occasional 50 degree day that has everyone running outside in shorts.  Dave is away on business and Jack and I needed some home cooked goodness to warm us.  Recipe adapted from Craft-O-Maniac   ( I made my own “cream of chicken” soup with the Roux instead of using from the can soup)

Enjoy!

* I used ready to go mirepoix from trader joes instead of chopping onion and celery and added a couple of additional carrots at the end

  1. If the weather in Wisconsin is anything like the weather in Michigan, soup is perfect for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Your soup recipe looks delicious!Glad to see you posting again. How's the bathroom remodel coming? I also hear you and David are now pros at making a patio. Me and Adam may be tackling that project this spring… if it ever warms up!

  2. Thanks! We start the remodel at the end of June and we get to enjoy our patio this summer which will be awesome!! Good luck with your patio. Call Dave if u need some advice. The pitch was tricky with ours!
