My man loves his momma’s Chicken Noodle Soup!
For the past two years, since my man and I have been together, he always rants and raves about his momma’s “Chicken Noodles” (he never says Chicken Noodle Soup) when it starts to get cold. Here is a little something about me, when someone who is close to me say their momma, daddy, grandfather, grandmother, or whomever makes a dish that is amazing to them, I make it my personal mission in life to try their dish and make it better or different. I know, I know. I shouldn’t take things so seriously, right? Truth be told I really don’t it is just the cook in me. I never go back to the source and go, “BOOM! IN YO FACE! I MAKE SOUP BETTER THAN YOU, YOUR RECIPE IS NOTHING…NOTHING!” I really don’t do that. I give homage to the generations before me because I know they can really throw down things better than I could ever figure out. HOWEVER, If I could at least have people say, “My momma’s fried chicken is the best, but that Nicole’s fried chicken is up there too”, I’m happy.
Now, there is nothing really complicated about making Chicken Noodle Soup. It’s only broth, chicken, veggies, and noodles. Pretty simple. However, due to how much my significant other rants and raves about his mom’s soup I began to wonder if there could be more to the story than what I know. Maybe she uses a different cooking technique? Maybe she uses a special blend of spices? So, I asked her what she puts in her chicken noodle soup and she said pretty much what we all know to be in the soup; chicken, noodles, veggies, flour, and broth. So I’m like, “That’s it! I got this.” I went into the kitchen and made the chicken noodle soup the best way I figure to make it and hope for the best. I made some cheesy biscuits to go along with it and, DRUM ROLL PLEASE…….My “Chicken Noodles” was just as good as his momma’s. I was super happy and excited.
So, just in case “momma” is reading, let me say, I will never take the place of your soup. Therefore, to him, my soup will never compare to your soup because you are a momma. HOWEVER, if you ever want to get an unbiased opinion, we can find someone and ask who makes the best soup. We can throw them bowls if you want to :-). I’m just playing. Love you momma.
