Chicken Noodle Soup: REVIEW

Here is my conclusion to the crock pot meals I made a couple weeks ago. I attempted to make 9 crock pot meals in an hour.  I fell short, but considered two hours (includes chopping and other prep) to be a reasonable compromise.  I also loved that my kitchen was not a disaster afterwards.

For this one, I forgot to set out the ziplock and microwaved it for two minutes, flipped and added one more minute.  I wanted it to be bendable (like above) but still mostly frozen.

It cooked on low for the full 6 hours suggested. I stirred it once, but I do not feel that was necessary and would cook fine unsupervised.

Now, it is time for the ultimate test: Did it taste good?  Yes!  I thought it tasted very good and my family really enjoyed it. I cooked egg noodles separately and added them to the pot a few minutes before serving.

(If you happen to notice the celery has disappeared, it is because my family doesn’t like it.  I used to not include it at all, but it never tasted right and so I have learned to keep it large and cook with it, and then remove it before serving so the flavor is there)

  1. This isn’t a good conclusion. You need to do a summary of all of them. What worked, what didn’t, that sort of thing. This can be the final meal, but not conclusion.
