Chicken Soup...for My Soul

I know you are all dying to know whata else you can do with a $5 rotisserie chicken so I'm going to tell you. You can make soup. You might be thinking ...."couldn't I just buy a raw chicken from the store, cook it, bone it, and bake soup that way?" The answer...yes. Yes you could. But it would probably cost close to $5 to buy a chicken the size of the cooked ones they sell at Costco and Sam's Club and then that would be a lot more work. So--do whatever you want. I'm buying the rotisserie. Which also may have something to do with the fact that Sams Club is a mile from my house and I was there anyway.

I'm adding garlic, carrots, onion, celery, peas, whole wheat egg noodles, homemade chicken broth that I froze last winter so hopefully it doesn't taste freezer burned, and cream of chicken soup. Should be good. Then it will be a meal to take to a family from church, dinner for us tonight, and I'll freeze the rest for our Community Group Kickoff party next Monday. All for a grand total of $11 to feed at the least 18 people, so take that crappy economy!
