Sharing my Classic Chicken and Rice Soup today!

Is there anything better than homemade soup? You’ve got to try my Classic Chicken and Rice Soup. So hearty, comforting and oh so delicious! I posted a pretty little Instagram picture of the soup I made the family for lunch. I did not plan on sharing the recipe, but because I posted that little picture on Instagram, I got lots of requests for the recipe 🙂

You know I generally like to post step by step photos, but that Sunday afternoon, photos were the last thing on my mind 🙂  I was rushing around like a mad woman after church to get lunch made for my hungry boys.

Since it was so delicious,  I penciled down the recipe, took a couple photos of the very last bowl left on Monday so I could share with you. Hope you enjoy minus all the photos!! xoxo
