Victuals and Tidbits

Last night I had "The Three Musketeerettes", "The Three Amigos", "The Three Stoogettes" the "Three French Hens", or, if you are confused, Kelly's three girls.

For dinner I decided to have Chicken Pasta Soup. I knew the girls would eat this. (Well, not Piper.) It is one of their favorites. (Not Pipers . . . yet!) So much so, Helena asked for it for her "birthday dinner"!

As we are eating Rease tells me she loves this soup. She matter-of-factly stated that if all the food on earth disappeared except for this, she would be okay. Okay with eating it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. "Snack, too!", Helena reminds her.

Does ones heart good to hear such things.

Chicken Pasta Soup
1 lb boneless chicken breast
2 C Shells
1-2 cans chicken broth
1 can (15oz) green beans
1 can tomato paste
1/2 t dried basil

Cook chicken breast in boiling water til done. (About 8 cups or so of water. you can add a can of broth here if you like)
Remove breast and cut into bite sized pieces.
In meantime, add one can chicken broth and 2 cups shells to boiling water.
Cook til shells are tender.
Add cubed chicken, green beans, (juice and all), tomato paste and basil.
Cook just until beans are hot and tomato paste is dissolved.


Tidbit: You can cut thawed breasts before you cook and save a step. Just add shells when chicken is done. If breasts are frozen, then hubby's hands aren't warm enough, no - sorry - anoter topic - um - just throw frozen chicken breasts into boiling water. All's good. And carry on.
