i made soup this week and it was soo yummy i'm going to share the recipe.
i love chicken soup, but it does get a little boring on repeat, don't you think?

this is shauna niequist's recipe and i'd like to personally
thank her for it. (so shauna, if you're reading this and would like to
either invite me over, or come to mpls. let me know).


2 cups chopped onion

1 cup chopped carrots, 1 cup chopped celery

3 tbsp. olive oil (i think i'll use butter next time)

3 cloves garlic

6 cups chicken broth

half cup of brown rice

2 cups chicken cooked and shredded (opt.-but duh-yes!)

1/4 cup of juice from fresh lemons

4 sprigs fresh dill-chopped

salt and pepper to taste.

in a big pot saute' the carrots, celery and onions until soft and add the garlic.
then add the broth and uncooked rice, S & P and cook until rice is about 5 minutes
from being done. now- add the chicken, lemon juice and dill and cook another
5-10 minutes.

it's amazing!
i wasn't the only family member that thought so either.
: )

* it's just really interesting with the lemon and dill
jazzin it up. i made it on a whim so i even
used bottled lemon juice and dehydrated dill.
next time i'll plan to have those on hand and
it'll probably be even better!

 if you're reading this on the east coast, be safe,
us minnesotans are used to a lot of snow but I know you're not
~sooo, maybe make a pot of soup and stay warm!

xo, beth


  1. Lemons are also a good source of thiamin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid, iron, and magnesium, and are an excellent source of fiber, vitamin B6, calcium, potassium, and copper, as well as folate and potassium.



  2. Difficult roads often leads to beautiful destinations. :)
