It's COLD in many areas now and will be for some time. SO - what do you make?
Right now I have cream of leek soup on the stove.

Sorry, I am not a domestic goddess. For me soup is usualy open a can....a do make a pretty good turkey chili in the crock pot though.
Good idea, I will come back and check for some recipies.
OK, I have a really simple chicken vegetable soup recipe that kids love (they just think it's noodle soup) and my family and friends still beg me to make. A friend from Upstate NY created it. I make the soup in a very large soup pot and my ingredients often change.
4 boxes chicken broth
5 large cans white chicken meat (or chicken meat that you have on hand)
1 small bag mixed frozen vegetables
1 can original Rotel (gives it a little zing)
Small bag of seasoning mix (chopped onion, celery, parsley, etc.)
1 can tomato paste
1 can chopped tomotoes
10 (or more) ounces extra wide noodles
Just throw all of the above ingredients together in the large pot. Bring to a boil and then simmer for a 2-3 hours. At the last 30 minutes, throw in about 10 ounces of extra wide noodles. You can add different veggies and I rarely make it the same way twice. It freezes really great and I take baggies of the stuff to sick friends and they love it. So simple. And I only share it with my closest friends . The key, I think, is that can of Rotel. It does not come out spicey hot, just a little spicey. If you want hotter, use the Rotel Hot.
I used to enjoy Campbells too, but with the BPA in the can lining leaking estrogen-mimicking chemicals in their soups, I avoid Campbells now. There are soups with no BPA and I use them now. I still do occasionally use canned products, but I pick and choose now.
If your tumor isn't estrogen receptor positive, go for it.
