3 pounds cut up chicken boneless skinless thighs, 1 carton chicken stock, 4½ cups water, salt, pepper, 16 oz bag peeled mini carrots, 5 stalks celery chopped, dried garlic, dried red onion, salt, pepper, and dried parsley flakes.
Cut up and sauté the chicken til browned in olive oil.

Add all ingredients, except egg noodles, to pot and either cook in crockpot on low for 4-5 hours or in a pot on the stove on low-med for about 4 hours. The egg noodles went into the pot and were submerged and cooked for about 4o minutes. They were perfect. Soup was WONDERFUL!!!

Football Sunday... yes! 

I tried really hard blowing the clouds from up here, south. It worked and Linda had rain north of Sacramento, Kristen had rain in LA area, and Ed had a little rain in Murietta!

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Halloween. Ciao. Er, rather BOO!

Well thank you! Your rain made it all the way down here to So Cal! The timing of my kids was not good as they were at Disneyland yesterday and got rained on but they stuck it out and stayed until it stopped.

Thank you for the Isabella birthday shout out! She had a great day yesterday starting with us meeting them for a Disney breakfast! It was wonderful.

Happy Birthday to Kristin too! :) Great Smile Box!

Yummy soup! Wish I could make some too. It's cold today and it would hit the spot. However, no cooking for me for quite sometime because of remodel.

Mixed emotions about that!

XO Trisha

Yes, the birthday party for Isabella looked great. How excited the kids are to see the Disney Characters!!! Hugs...xo

Boo!!!! And Happy Birthday to Kristen and Isabella.

We used to watch Brian's Song every year. Cried every time. Some things should not be so gotten used to that we forget how real love- in all its forms- is.

At 8:07 the first trick or treaters in 2 years rang the doorbell. Passing out candy was just as much fun as I remember.

Wow, 8 o'clock is late for trick-or-treaters. Bet they are the ones that go from neighborhood to neighborhood. We had ones that came from El Monte and South El Monte! As much as they can get!!! xo
