Mary’s Chicken Noodle Soup

Hi Friends

I’m keeping this post short and sweet which is fun for all parties involved. My schedule was all turned around because The boyfriend is sick. For the pass few days he’s been coughing and tired, that has manifested itself into a full-blown cold. No bikram yoga for me, no Easter egg demos, I spent the day cooking soup and tending to my man. My chicken noodle soup turned out so good I had to feature it today. Sadly I didn’t take many pictures because I wasn’t planing on sharing this recipe but it was too good to keep to myself. I made the recipe up so it’s an Evolve With Mary Original, I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
