Chicken Noodle Soup made from Scratch

Chicken Noodle Soup

This past week, our family has set about finding ways that we can cut down on our food waste. A staggering $1,600 per family is wasted in food scraps each year in the United States. For our family, living on one income and six people, that is a sobering amount of money. Our kids, in school, are also learning how to not waste food and to lower the amount of trash created. This past week, as we were meal planning, we decided to come up with ways that our family can help in reducing food waste in our own home. Making Chicken Stock from Scratch and then using that homemade stock to make Chicken Noodle Soup was a natural progression. Not only does making your own chicken stock help cut down on food waste, but it also stretches a food budget.

10. Add pasta or make your own and add it right before serving to cook the pasta. As homemade pasta does not need to cook for more than a few minutes, you can then add the homemade pasta up to thirty minutes ahead of serving.

Enjoy! We had Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup with Sourdough Grilled Cheese for dinner and was so delicious, especially on a chilly and windy day. This recipe makes 6-Quarts of soup and unless you are feeding an army, you will have leftovers for days! Consequently, after making Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup, the people in your life will then ask you to make it instead of buying it.

I have not always had the skills to cook and bake from scratch. As a young wife, I bought every meal frozen or boxed and presented it to my husband with a flourish, believing myself a decadent cook. As our budget shrunk, and our family grew, I looked for ways to stretch our money to nourish our kids with the best for their hungry appetites. Hoping to find recipes and meals that they would love to eat. Through the last 5 years, I have learned so many cooking and baking lessons, and experienced many wins and failures. Come along with me on this journey as I share my recipes that work, how to make them on the cheap, and my tips and tricks to get my kids to eat homemade deliciousness! I will also share updates to our house that we have done in the last year since our move. With one income, we do most of the work ourselves and with amazing family and friends to help out, cutting costs but keeping style and money in the bank! I am a wife and mother of 3 boys and 1 princess. When I was a kid, I remember being asked what I wanted to be or do when I grew up. My response was, "a mom", and I am proud to grow up and be a mom to 4 amazing kids! Samuel is 11, Matthew is 8, Levi is 4, and Elliana is almost 2. We have been blessed to have kids who love to explore foods, to try new recipes, and enjoy helping us around the house. With 4 kids, you better believe they help clean! My husband Tyler and I have been married almost 13 years. We love our kids, we love outdoors, camping, canoeing, grilling, watching movies, and just hanging out making memories. A few years ago I gifted Tyler with his own "menu" book, where we write meals and foods we have loved to eat. Weekly our family decides what our meals will be and I make up a grocery list with what we need. It literally is my favorite chore! I love to shop, so shopping for food on a budget is my biggest win! Thank you for taking the time and visiting my site, Subscribe so you do not miss a post! Keep coming back to hear about new recipes, updates on our home, fun times with our kids, and how to make homemade deliciousness! ~Monica
