Last year was full on! Doing a complete house renovation whilst living with my parents made for a busy and often stressful 5 months.
My mum and I work really well together, so we actually did a pretty good job at planning and preparing our meals, laundry and storage arrangements, but the stress of the build taking longer than expected, being let down by workmen and sleeping in one room with the kids…. That was enough to tip me over the edge!
Whilst we were living there, we had a couple of visit from a gorgeous American couple who are in England on a mission for the church. They are good friends with my parents and so they wanted to come over and lend a hand by bringing over meals and working over at our new house.
One of the meals they bought over was the most amazing chicken and rice soup and we all devoured it. I swear I have always been able to taste ‘Love’ in food, like the meals that were delivered to me by friends after I had the boys and after we moved house. I will never forget those meals. People are so kind!
So this is one of those delicious, hearty, love filled meals that I will make again and again with gratitude that we are in our own home, with minimal stresses (in comparison) and remember how it feels to be on the receiving end of such kindness. And the best thing about this soup is that takes about 10 minutes to put together and is a great way to use up leftovers!
