Perfect Crockpot Chicken Noodle Soup

Today was a very busy but lovely beginning to our Halloween Festivities.  My husband and I went to a Farmers' Market that was featuring local artists and their Halloween wares, and even though it was over 70 degrees, it certainly put us in the spirit of things.  He purchased several fun little trinkets that I don't see going into our closet after the ghosts and goblins disappear.  Thankfully, our library holds year round oddities. 

In order to enjoy these little moments without any worries, I brought out the crockpot and made chicken noodle soup for the gang.  I cannot claim this recipe as my own, but I also cannot remember where I found it.  I just know it is delicious and it is a family favorite.  I don't have any pictures due to the fact we all sat down to eat as soon as we could.

Crockpot Chicken Noodle Soup
1lb. chicken (I use boneless tenders)
10 cups of chicken broth (I use Trader's Joes Organic Chicken Broth)
One stick of butter
Red Onion (my husband cannot handle white onion after some gallbladder issues)
One Cup Carrots
Three stalks of Celery
Bag of Frozen Reames Noodles
Salt and Pepper to taste

Add all the ingredients together except for the noodles and cook on low for 7 hours. Then remove the chicken and shred it.  After you put the chicken back into the crockpot, add the noodles and cook for at least an additional hour. 

I served it with crusty bread I bought at the farmers' market, but it is good enough to forgo bread or crackers. 

So, here are a few of my favorite things this week:

Watching:  Paul and I went to the drive-in last weekend and saw the original Halloween.  Something about a late, foggy night encourages the imagination.  I swear it was scarier this way.

Reading:  The Legend of Sleepy Hollow

Try out the I Heart Radio Halloween Station!  It has a really good variety of music, and it makes me happy.
