It's that time again... Man, the months just are flying by! I can't believe that Christmas is just around the corner - who's started their shopping?? I just came back from our annual girls weekend where I usually get most of mine done... Hoping to finish the rest up soon so that I can concentrate on the goodie baking part of Christmas, which is also a favorite part! :)
SRC this month brought me to the blog authenticsimplicity.net. As I wandered through the pages and pages of recipes and other goodies that I found on Anne's blog, I found myself writing down more and more recipes that I wanted to try and share! I actually got a chance to try a few different recipes and I will definitely be sharing the rest down the road. Pumpkin chocolate chip blondies? Easy as pumpkin pie and gone before I finished bringing the rest of my stuff out for the potluck! Salted steak and 15 minute pork chops were a couple of the other recipes that I tried and enjoyed, but for today I decided to focus in on her Chicken Noodle Soup.
I was excited to make this chicken noodle soup - it was a windy fall day. We had spent a good part of the day outside chopping wood and getting the yard ready for winter and it was nice to walk into the house and have a warm supper ready and waiting for us... Seriously - I love a good, healthy crockpot meal! The only problem with this recipe is that I should have doubled it! :) The whole family enjoyed and it was hearty enough for my 1 year old to have with out any of the broth!
