Eating Soup with a Fork

Yesterday morning it snowed for a couple hours and it was just so beautiful it made me want to make some soup! I just love soup on a cold, snowy or rainy day. When it's so dreary outside there is nothing better than a bowl of soup that warms your soul. No, I'm not being cheesy (maybe just a little, I love cheesy-ness), that just happens to be the name of the soup, "Warm-Your-Soul Soup." Yum! And it was warm and tasty! However...I think it might be a little stretch to say it was soup...

I know right? Just a big bowl of pasta drenched in chicken broth... Evidently these directions aren't descriptive enough! Was I suppose to deduct on my own when I poured the fettucini in the pot that I should only use half a box?

Oh wait.....sorry...I just read the directions again (while I was in the process of writing this blog) and MY BAD it does only call for half of a box... Well that explains it! Moral of the story, you should read directions thoroughly and focus on amounts...

...Changing subjects...

I also made Butter Bread to go with the soup...It only involves three ingredients.

It is HORRIBLE for you, Bradley LOVED it though. It is more like a biscuit. I would have shaped them better had I known what they would look like. I just plopped them in a muffin pan, and when they were done it looked like I had just plopped them in a muffin pan. I guess I had expected them to smooth out and look like sister shubert rolls. Nope, not at all.

Overall, it was a good lunch. And I would recommend making it if you can follow a set of simple instructions.

Warm-Your-Soul Soup

-3 cans of chicken broth

-1 can of Italian-style stewed tomatoes

-1/2 cup of chopped onions

-3/4 cup chopped celery

-1/2 box fettuccine

Add everything except the pasta, bring to a boil and then simmer until onions and celery are tender.

Add the fettuccine, only half a box please! Cook until noodles are tender and then serve!

Butter Bread

-2 sticks butter

-8 oz sour cream

-2 cups flour

Mix it together, form into nice dollops and place in Muffin pan. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
