Chicken Soup To Warm You....

"Autumn is the Best Season in which to Sniff
and to Sniff for Pleasure,
For this is the Season of Universal Pungency!"
~Bertha Damon

We walked the path and gathered our favorite colors, our favorite shapes.....it was cold and damp, but that country air felt so very good against our cheeks. His little hands could not hold very many, so I told him I thought we had a good selection for our harvest garland.

Chicken and Rice Soup
6 cups chicken broth
2 cooked, boneless chicken breast halves, shredded
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 yellow onion, chopped and cooked
1 large carrot, chopped fine
1 (4.5 ounce) package quick cooking rice, cooked per package directions
2 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoon onion powder
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoons curry powder
2 tablespoons dried sage
2 cups half and half
Four ounces Velveeta, cut into cubes

In a large pot over medium heat, combine broth, onion, carrot, soup, cheese, spices and chicken. Bring just to boiling, and then stir in rice. Cover and remove from heat. Whisk in half and half, a little at a time, until fully incorporated and smooth. Cook over medium heat until heated through for about 20 minutes.
