But then my boys asked if they could make a special soup. I gave them a little of the broth & chicken and then they chopped up zucchini & tomato & I cut corn off the cob (all from our garden) and added it to their little pot of soup.
I tasted it after it had simmered awhile. Mmmmm. Summery. Fresh. Yummy. I decided to use the remainder of the chicken and broth to make a big pot of the soup.
And, that (as Rachel Ray says) is what's for dinner tonight.
The experimental boy pot o' soup
P.S. - I used my new favorite seasoning, adobo, when I cooked down the chicken & broth in the crock pot.
