Chicken and Veggie Soup
Who says you can’t have soup year round. Not this girl! I love soups all year round because they are a great way to eat healthy and use up whatever veggies you have in your house. I like to start off my broth base with mirepox of onions, carrots, and celery, it reminds me of my Grandma Peggy’s cooking, anything she touches is gold.
