Chicken Soup

This was a good day to make chicken soup. It was cold and windy with an occasional snowflake. I picked up a small roasting chicken and put it in the stew pot to cook. It came with the liver, gizzard and heart in a small pouch. I added that to the pot for Snickers.
Once I saw a movie in which an actor played the part of a starving man. He found his way to a boarding house and was served chicken soup. He burst into tears and described that soup as the most beautiful thing he had ever seen. Ever since I've seen that movie I can't eat chicken soup without counting my blessings.
Well, Snickers is no starving dog, but you would have thought she was the way she went after her treat.
