Brendan is sick today so I making him some homemade chicken noodle soup. I’ve gotten the recipe from Table for Two and let me tell you: this is some of the best chicken noodle soup I’ve ever made! Super tasty, easy, and lucky for me, healthy 🙂 Brendan loved it! This soup would be great to try with matzoh balls or dumplings.
