Nourished in Friendship … and Paleo Dilled Chicken Soup!

Well, I have been somewhat distracted from my blog recently with several gatherings involving old friends.  First a road trip to visit a dear friend from college that I had not visited with for close to 2 years … and most recently a weekend gathering with a number of friends from my early high school years.  Being with these dear friends took me to a place where I felt quite nourished in their love and friendship.  Of course, we ate lots of nourishing food, too!  I was reminded of times when life was … shall we say … simpler?  easier?  more carefree?  just not so complicated?  Yes.  All of those things!

Well, now I am back.  Seeking more nourishment from good food.  And, I am back at the computer 🙂

This week’s recipes are pretty simple.  And reminiscent of the comfort foods that were not so complicated!

My first entry was inspired by a recipe that was found at


Dilled Chicken Soup

  • 2 Organic boneless chicken breast halves (@$4 from Costco – Coleman brand)
  • 4 Cups Organic Chicken Stock (@ $5 from Costco)
  • 1/2 Large Organic onion – Diced (@$1 from Meijer)
  • 1 Cup Organic Celery – Sliced (@ $1 from Meijer)
  • 1 Cup Organic Carrots – Sliced  (@ $1 from Costco)
  • 3 Tablespoons Organic Dill Weed
  • 2 teaspoons Organic Garlic Granules
  • Black Pepper to taste

Rinse chicken breast, dice into bite size pieces and place in a large soup pot with chicken stock, onion and seasonings. Bring to a boil, then lower heat to a simmer, cover and cook for 30 minutes.  Add celery and carrots to the soup * and more stock if needed *, cover and continue cooking for one hour.

It’s the ultimate comfort on a chilly evening –  Enjoy!

Serve 4 people at approx $3 per serving.
