Mom D has some of her grandmother Leona’s belongings. Leona died when she was in her early 20’s, shortly after giving birth to Mom D’s dad. She has poems and quotes and journals in Leona’s handwriting. When I post recipes I will include poems, quotes or sayings from Leona’s recipe book. I believe these things would date to the mid to late 1920’s.
Carl mentioned my chicken noodle soup on one of the posts. I know my mom and my aunts will giggle that I need a recipe to make chicken noodle soup but I am not the domestic queen that they are! This is soooo good. I got it off of all recipes.
Chicken Noodle Soup
4 cups chopped, cooked chicken meat
1 cup chopped celery
1/4 cup chopped carrots
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup butter
8 ounces egg noodles
12 cups water
9 cubes chicken bouillon
1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 bay leaf
1 tablespoon dried parsley
In a large stock pot, saute celery and onion in butter or margarine.
Add chicken, carrots, water, bouillon cubes, marjoram, black pepper, bay leaf, and parsley. Simmer for 30 minutes.
Add noodles, and simmer for 10 more minutes.
I cook a chicken in the crock pot and use all the meat. I like to use those frozen Reames noodles. They’re like homemade.
