Best Chicken Soup

I hadn't made any Chicken Noodle soup since October 2011. It has just been too hot to think about making soup. It still is hot but there is nothing like homemade soup so that is what I did last night.

When I make soup I make a BIG pot of it. This is my largest kettle. In this photo the noodles had not been added yet. I have learned not to add the noodles until it is almost done or they turn to mush!

This is the finished soup after adding the noodles.
The green stuff you see is dill. It adds a wonderful flavor to the soup. I never was a big fan of chicken soup until someone made it for me with dill and some potato chunks. Now I can't get enough of it.

I have a lot of varioius size containers of it in my freezer now. I like to share it with friends for various reasons. I also make little individual containers of it holding just a portion size for lunch for myself.

I think this is the very best batch I've ever made!

I am not a fan of dill but that soup looks marvelous. I am willing to give it a go.

Lemon juice is also nice in chicken noodle soup. I just made some recently.
