Chicken Noodle Soup and Popsicles
Jacob has not been feeling well. He received six immunization shots at the doctor this week and they are taking a toll on his little body.
So, I did what any good mother would do and fed him chicken noodle soup and Popsicles. We all liked both, but Jacob especially enjoyed the Popsicle. He pitched a fit when he realized there was none left.

Chicken Noodle Soup
Chicken and Broth:
8 cups water
2 carrots, cut into large pieces
2 celery stalks, cut into large pieces
1 small onion, quartered
1 bay leaf
1/2 teaspoon rosemary
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1" piece ginger root
juice of half a lemon
2 lb chicken, bone and skin intact (I used drumsticks)
Place all ingredients except chicken in a large stock pot. Bring to a boil over high heat. Add chicken and simmer about 30 minutes.
Remove chicken and let cool until warm enough to handle. Remove skin and bone. Chop chicken into bite sized pieces.
Strain vegetables from broth. Discard vegetables and return broth to pot.
8 cups chicken broth
2 carrots, diced
2 celery stalks, diced
1 small onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 package whole wheat egg noodles
chopped, cooked chicken
Bring broth to a boil over high heat. Stir in carrots, celery, onion, and garlic. Boil about 10 minutes, or until veggies are tender. Stir in noodles and chicken. Cook until noodles are al dente, about 8 minutes. Season to taste with salt, pepper, and seasoned salt.
