Sick Boy

I have a sick husband this week, so what does that call for?? 
Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup!
I thought this was HILARIOUS, so I just have to share.... 
So my husband came home from work early on Tuesday night because he was not feeling well. I went to the cupboards in pursuit of making my soup and  I realized I was all out of Chicken bullion cubes and my Celery was gone! I told him I'd run to Walmart real quick to grab some stuff and he told me not to worry about it. So I cooked something else for him. 
 On Wednesday he stayed home from work because he was still really sick. (here comes the funny part) I come home for my lunch break and I asked him what he wants for lunch. 
Hubby: I don't care babe, I'll have anything
So as I'm looking through the fridge I see sitting right on the top shelf, Celery and Chicken Bouillon cubes.
 My husband had made a Walmart run that morning for those two little ingredients. I just laughed to myself..
Me: Did you want me to make your chicken noodle soup now?
Hubby: I don't care babe. (all nonchalant like he hadn't just ran clear to Walmart JUST for chicken bouillon cubes and celery)
Boys....good thing we love em right??
So me being the great wife I am, whipped him up a quick batch of Homemade Chicken soup. (It only takes about 10-15 minutes)
So for all your sicky's out there, I'm sharing my recipe with you all!
Alright... I sort of just DUMP a bunch of stuff into a pot until it tastes the way I want it, so here's my recipe, give or take ;)

Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup
*Cooked Chicken (I used the canned chicken yesterday because I was in a hurry and it tastes just as great as boiled chicken, so use whatever is easiest for you)
*Pot full of boiling water
*I add about 5-6 chicken bouillon cubes because I love mine EXTRA tasty
*Chop up some Celery and Carrots (I like lots of celery in mine so I do about 2-3 stalks of celery and about 6 baby carrots) then combine it all into your boiling pot of agua.
*SPICE IT UP!! I use: Salt, Pepper, Garlic Salt, Onion Salt, a pinch of Dill weed, and a pinch of celery Salt. And don't forget a sprinkle of Parsley Flakes
*Last but not least, I use Giant Egg Noodles, drop them on in, pop on the lid and let them cook!
(sometimes I add about 2 tablespoons of cornstarch to thicken it up)
And there ya have it!!
(This is not my soup, I forgot to take a picture, but mine looks WAY better ;)

So, like I said....I pretty much just dump everything into my giant pot and taste test until I approve! This recipe is SO easy and it's a total NO FAIL! No matter what you add, stir, chop, and boil it will taste great! So if your not feeling to swell, whip up a batch of this Fabulous soup and you'll be feeling great in no time ;)
