Its a Soup-er Night

Good evening everyone. Its still awfully cold here in Southern Ontario, Canada. Its winter afterall, so it is to be expected. But it gets old, and you need to stay healthy. We were out and about a fair bit in the cold today. So when I asked my husband what he'd like me to make for supper, he paused and told me that he wasn't very hungry. So I suggested soup. Chicken slider soup. Now for those of you who aren't familiar with the slider in the title of the soup, its basically tiny little biscuit dough that is dropped into the soup and allowed to cook up. As opposed to noodles, these are the starch of the soup. And I have to say, even though I cut a corner by using a canister of pre-made biscuits from the grocery store the end result was just delicious. I do love it when i can cut corners here and there and still enjoy a pretty good dish. Have you ever had chicken slider soup? ~Photo is a bowl of the soup that I made

Thanks. My everyday dishes are so old. I was only in my 20's when my husband bought them for me. That makes them around 25 years old. The dish in the background, with the brown on it, they are older. I actually bought myself a set of 8 of those before we were married, I put it into my hope chest. There are only 2 bowls and 1 plate left from that set-the rest all got broken.

We've had chicken and dumplings, but the dumplings are more of a side dish and not a soup. I enjoyed the soup, it was just a first try, but he really enjoyed it and so did I. There isn't a lot left to reheat for lunches for next week.

@LadyDuck Oh how nice for you. This winter has really been an adjustment for my husband and I as we have never lived anywhere where so much snow falls. We don't like that, and are hoping to return to the area that we used to live in when we retire.

I make a different variation of chicken soup. I add frozen mixed veggies, chopped red and green Bell peppers, celery and freshly cut carrots. When that's all done I mix in egg noodles and a little elbow macaroni. The only seasoning is Mrs.Dash Original, Mrs. Dash Onion and Herb, and a few shakes of garlic powder.
