    OK

    Ingredients:

    1 Tbsp Olive Oil
    1 Cup Celery, chopped
    1 Cup Carrots, chopped
    1 Cup Sweet or White Onion, chopped
    1 Clover Garlic, minced
    1 Skinless, Boneless Chicken Breast, or 2-3 Thighs, Diced ( I MUCH Prefer the Thighs, as they are more flavorful and tender)
    1 28 oz. Box Chicken Stock
    2 Cups Water
    1 15 oz. Can Diced Tomatoes
    1 Heaping Tbsp Sea Salt
    1Tsp Fresh Ground Black pepper
    1/2 Tsp Old Bay Seasoning
    2 Bay Leaves
    6 Tbsp Fresh Parsley
    2 Tbsp Oregano
    2 Tbsp Fresh Basil, chopped

    If adding directly to soup...
    Rice...1/2 Cup
    Pasta (Small, like Ditalini).. 1/3 Cup
    Egg Noodles..1Cup

    To satisfy everybody, you can precook the rice and pasta, and add some to each bowl,if it's at room temperature or warm

    Directions:

    Heat Olive oil on medium high in Soup/Stockpot,

    Add garlic.
    As soon as garlic starts to release its aroma, quickly add the celery, onion and carrots.
    Stir fo about 5 minutes, until vegetables become 'sweated" or slightly translucent.

    Add Chicken Stock, Chicken, Water,tomatoes and spices, including Bay Leaves

    Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer, add Oregano and half of the Parsley.

    Simmer on low for about one hour.

    If adding rice or pasta directly to soup, raise temperature slightly and add to soup, also adding remaining Parsley and Fresh Basil.

    Test rice or pasta for desired doneness..

    If adding cooked rice or pasta , just add remaining Parsley and Fresh Basil

    Serve with fresh grated cheese, if desired.

    That looks like a lot of work ^

    I just buy Campbell's home style chicken noodle. It's ok for me.

    Might be OK in a pinch.. but if you really read and follow the recipe, there's NO comparison, especially the lack of chemicals and preservatives.

    That's what I have my mom for until she passes.
    She uses my Omas recipe and it's pretty good, but will not pass it on yet.

    Fastsix, Here's a Waffle Recipe for you.

    Ingredients:

    7/8 Cup All-Purpose Flour
    1/8 Cup Cornstarch
    1/2 Tsp Baking Powder
    1/3 Tsp Baking Soda
    1/2 Tsp Kosher Salt
    1 Cup Whole Milk
    1/3 Cup Vegetable Oil
    1 Large Egg
    1 1/3 Tsp Vanilla Extract

    Whisk dry ingredients in one bowl until blended.

    Whisk wet ingredients into a separate bowl until blended.

    Pour Wet mixture into the dry mix, and whisk until just mixed.

    I was just kidding around. You were right to give the full recipe.
    My mom won't give me my Omas recipe.
    She was a great cook. I do know that somewhere in there parsley is n the mix.
    My Oma could cook anything.
    I bet I dont get the cookbook until my mom passes.

    I'll be knee deep it in German recipes that love sour food.

    My Grandma on my Mom's side made a super rabbit stew every time my Grandpa and I used to hunt in the outskirts of Philadelphia.

    Lots of rabbits back then, along with a goodly number of ringneck Pheasant!

    Got a brisket in the freezer that didn't get used during the high holidays. Any ideas for a stew?
