chicken soup sucCESS, bitches

for those of you who waited with bated breath to hear the outcome of the chicken soup mystery, fear no more, the answer is here.

the soup was...

delicious!

hurray for me and my incredible culinary prowess. it was deceivingly simple to make, although there are a few things i may have done differently next time. i started with the "holy trio of soups" (chopped carrots, onions, and celery -- phrase i borrowed from a food network host, i forget which one), sauteed for a bit and then added water and chicken parts (i had a somewhat picked over rotisserie chicken to use). lots of salt and pepper and then some fresh herbs (i used thyme, dill, parsley and some garlic), bring to a boil and then simmer. add some uncooked rice after a while, taste and adjust seasoning.

et voila. bowl of homemade comfort, ready to go...

"holy trinity of soup!" I love it!

Well, I love it a lot better than "mirepoix" but that's because I'm incapable of pronouncing anything French.

Dill is a good idea. I will have to try that next time...
