Wish I Could Call In Sick!

Last week I was down for the count. I’d managed to catch yet another bug from my 2 year old, and I wanted nothing more than to lay in bed all day. Unfortunately, that was not an option.

So I decided to do the next best thing and make myself a batch of homemade chicken noodle soup. Thankfully I had all the ingredients on hand, so I didn’t have to run out and expose the world to my cooties.

I grabbed my favorite pot, a box of Simple Truth organic free range chicken broth, pulled a couple of chicken breast out of the fridge, sliced a few carrots, and celery sautéed some onion and I was off.

I use Simple Truth because, it’s affordable and I love knowing that I’m putting good things into my body, without breaking the bank.
