What is living simply?

  • Living simply is not so much about the particulars of our lives as much as it is about the principles that govern them. Knowing what God has called you to do, and then doing it--that's living simply.

Sounds fabulous...I thought I made pretty good chicken soup, but I love the white wine idea. Thanks for sharing!

You know, after your post yesterday I ended up making chicken noodle soup, too - with the added bonus of its healing properties since my son has a rotten cold right now. Mine was identical to yours (right down to the garlic and Italian seasoning) but I have never put white wine in my chicken noodle soup. I'm betting that is what put yours over the top and I'll give it a try sometime.

Thanks for sharing!


Hello ! i'm french and i have looked a translate your blog. This is very instructive, thank you ! (i'm into Blue Margueritte)


Thanks for sharing. Not sure I'll ever get to the making noodles myself level, but I always enjoy the down to earth way you explain your recipes. Even one like this that is way out of my league/ambition level. I love your blog!

Making noodles is MUCH easier and faster than it sounds. Once you do, youll be amazed at how yummy and easy they are!


" you don't get your kids drunk on chicken soup." You are so funny, Joanne. :-)

I can't wait to try this white wine tip! Wonder if it would be a nice addition to chicken pot pie as well?

The last picture looks similar to something I have that came from my grandpa's old grocery store called "Barney's Food Market." So fun! It was a baby food jar display. Each section was labeled with the different kinds of baby food. Maybe it is from an old grocery?
