Pairs Well With
When it is flu season and all of us kids being sick and miserable here comes grandmas and take us all in for a nice treat of chicken noodle soup, but this was not any ordinary chicken. She would go out and take the first available chicken from her chicken pen and well you guess it..., it can't be fresher than that. She will slowly cook that chicken with some magical spices and then, she will take that meat of the bone and the add it to the broth and that is where the magic start to happen. We were all warm a cozy, eating the soup and watching out favorite cartoon show. Ahh!! That was life!
