Well, they were calling for snow today here in NC, but all we got was cold, nasty rain. Only in NC can you go to bed with one forecast and wake up with a completely different one 🤷‍♀️.Oh well, there’s nothing better than chicken soup on a cold rainy or snowy day! It just warms the soul and makes you feel good inside.

The best part about chicken soup is you can really add anything you want to it. I always throw in whatever vegetables I can find in the refrigerator and cabinet. I hope you can take this simple, basic chicken soup recipe and make it your own by adding your favorite vegetables and seasonings!
