Bread and Soup! Simply Bliss

 Rosemary Garlic Bread and Homemade Soup!

There is hardly a price to put on fresh bread and a bowl of soup.

I have blogged often on how to make homemade chicken soup that will knock your socks off for very little cost. I used to tell students that they could make a pot of chicken soup for ten people under $6.50 or even 5 dollars if they used only wings. All you need is a whole chicken, and I bought one today for $5.52, natural free range. Add, one onion and three cloves of garlic, sea salt and black pepper to taste and some dried herb seasoning. You put it all into a pot of water, turn on the heat and viola! If you want to have noodles or rice with your soup 'stock' then cook them on the side. Remember, until you add other foods i.e. pasta/rice or veggies, your 'chicken soup' is just chicken stock which is soup ~ broth.

Good bread is all you need on the side. Aldi has excellent organic Rosemary and Garlic bread in whole unsliced loaf form that you can pop into the oven. It comes out crusty on the outside and tender on the inside, full of savory flavor.

That's all you have to do to get a full tummy.

Give us this day our daily bread ~
