Best Soup In the Whole Entire World

After two weeks of awaiting repair for stove/oven and finding out that parts to fix it won’t come in for another two weeks, I ran out of patience for positive-thinking regarding this issue but, Todd made absolutely delicious soup over backyard campfire!

Made from a bunch of veggies we grew in the garden, choosing to have a good day instead of bad one — it makes this pot of soup not just delicious, but also the best soup in the whole entire world!

Here’s photo of Mandala (aka Mandy). She is the most magnificent looking chicken with iridescent blue-green feather…also happens to be the least brightest of the bunch. She makes the coop happy with her drama everyday!mandala

We get rotisserie chicken every week because it is one of very few source of protein Immi eats. After few years of weekly rotisserie chicken, I can’t possible eat another bite of it, but I make soup stock with it almost every week which I still enjoy. I put in whatever veggie bits I happen to have (which is sometimes nothing) but today’s got carrots and italian parsley from the garden. …And this is the best stock I’ve ever made, including ones I made from whole [not rotisserie] chicken! It is absolutely amazing how much difference the extreme freshness of these ingredients make in a soup.
