Cold and flu season is upon us!  It kinda stinks…  a cough, a cold, maybe even the flu comes knocking on our door.  I know I’m never happy to face the sniffles or the aches.  However, I do know that in our home we are always prepared.  Our linen closet is ready for flu season, all stocked up with Kleenex, throat lozengers and more!  And the refrigerator/pantry is stocked with ingredients for Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup, so we’re ready to go.  If I’m really prepared, I even have it made and in the freezer {wink}.

    Thanks for sharing this recipe! I’ve never made Chicken Noodle Soup, but I am sick and have a lot of time on my hands, so I thought I would give it a go!

    For my soup, I substituted buccatini for egg noodles (just my preference), but I ended up making more broth to add by the end, because I felt there wasn’t enough. In addition, I omitted the Accent seasoning, only added 2 tsp salt, and that was more than enough.

    The soup is delicious and perfect! Thanks again!
