Today was one of those rainy, bleary days where the weather starts cooling off and it feels like fall is coming.  On days like today, chicken noodle soup hits the spot!  When I make chicken noodle soup, my kids come running from the four corners of the house. 🙂 And, the soup is gone in no time flat.

This beauty of this recipe is that it is simple and can be adapted to your dietary needs.
