Library and A New Recipe

I have been taking Wyatt to Story Time at the Library on Wednesday mornings and he really enjoys it. We are having a play date at our house today with some new friends, so we aren't able to go. So yesterday I took him to just get some new books. If only you could have seen him;) He was running around the children's book center grabbing books off the shelves without even looking at them! I would look at it, it wouldn't be a good one for him, so he would run and put it back (or I would because they are labeled by last name), and go get the next one! He was having a blast. I like this Library because they have play mats out, tables and chairs for them to read, and puzzles on the tables for kids to occupy themselves:) So I am able to go checkout our books while Wyatt plays. As pretty as this picture may sound, it wasn't all a bed of roses..Elias was fussing, and trying to push himself out of his stroller...which, as you know, the readers in the library love to hear;) Things aren't always what they appear..or as pleasant as how you read it;)

I made Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup last night and thought I would share the recipe!

Take your Bone-in chicken breasts and roast them in the oven on 375 degrees for about 20 minutes. Take them out of the oven when finished and let cool. Pull the chicken off the bone and set aside.

Cut up your carrots, celery, and onion.

I made some homemade stock last week, so I used that as the base in my soup. Then add another 6 cups of water to your 6 cups of stock. Let your veggies sauté in your pan with EVOO for about 3-4 minutes and then pour in your stock and water!

Add 2 Bay leaves and a couple whole cloves (optional) and let it come to a full boil. Turn down the heat, and i like to let it sit and rest-it allows the flavors to combine better. Bring it back to a boil and add your noodles. I used whole wheat egg noodles, but you can use whatever you like!
This makes a huge pot of soup; plenty to freeze for later, which is the best part! I served my soup with Garlic Cheddar biscuits! (Red Lobster wanna-be's;))
Have an awesome Wednesday:)
