The only soup I've made so far this year, is one I've shared before (it's my favorite, and I make it pretty regularly). This time I did things a little different, in that I had cooked a whole chicken in the crockpot - along with some carrots, celery and onion. After the chicken was done, I pulled the meat (actually, it just fell off) the bone, put the bones back in the crockpot with the veggies, seasonings, chicken 'juices' (ewww) and water, and let it cook a while. Then I strained it, and put the broth in the fridge to cool. After it cooled, I scraped all the fat off the top (ewww again), and then I had a rich, flavorful, chicken broth. I used the broth, along with some of the leftover chicken, and made this soup.
Sadly, I'm all out of fresh basil :*(
However, I have several more soup recipes on my wish list (aka Pinterest)
