A few months back we moved from New Orleans to Houston. Life has been so different ever since with very little that seems familiar.
During these months I have been homeschooling my 3 kids, growing a 4th, giving birth to that 4th, adjusting to our new home and city, and trying desperately to make friends. Moving is a hard transition and of everything we miss, we miss our friends the most. After friends, we miss good food.
One day when I was largely pregnant and Brandon was out of town, a new and dear friend Tracey invited the kids and I over to play. Tracey has 6 boys that my kids adore and fit right in with. Seriously, they wouldn’t mind at all if I happened to forget them there for a few years. They love playing and I love getting the much needed fellowship time with another mom.
This particular day, seeing as we had nowhere to be, we stayed for dinner and had a warm, comforting, snuggly blanket-in-a-bowl of chicken soup.
Tracey would humbly say it’s no big deal, her mom gave her the recipe, and it’s just something she threw together. I would say it is filling and cozy, rich yet simple, and full of the perfect amount of flavor. The perfect chicken soup.
So perfect, that I helped myself to 3 bowls. I was pregnant! It was not only wonderful to hang out with friends, but to have such delicious food- both things we have been missing dearly.
Tracey has graciously allowed me to share this recipe with all of you and after a couple of tiny tweaks here it is: “Paleo” Chicken Soup.
