Have you been eating lots of chicken soup on these rainy January days? I have! I am a big soup person. I just love homemade soup. The recipe I use is the basic Chicken Noodle Soup recipe from the big red and white checkered Better Homes and Gardens New Cookbook. I have the recipe memorized.
For awhile my kids would say, “We are having chicken noodle soup again?” because I make a really big pot with a double recipe so it will last for a few meals. But now, with these toppings, my kids don’t complain about eating more soup.
Our Latvian friends over at Gleanings for the Hungry introduced us to the most AMAZING combination of ingredients that you can put on top of almost any soup.
It’s so simple, but so delicious. My kids don’t get excited about having soup until I mention that I have . . .

Suddenly, everyone wants to eat chicken soup!
I just realized that my pic shows the lemon in the soup, but you will want to squeeze the lemon juice in your soup. Just in case you needed me to clarify that.
One more topping we learned from our friend is chopped black olives. You like black olives? Put some on top of your lemon and sour cream.
What is your favorite soup to eat on these beautiful rainy days? Do you already put lemon and sour cream on your soup or do you put another topping that I need to know about? Please share!
P.S. I haven’t announced this yet on the blog, but we are moving to Gleanings for the Hungry in a few weeks! You can find out more about our decision to become full-time missionaries with this amazing organization here.
I hope you enjoy some nice hot soup with your loved ones soon. And let me know what you think of the lemon and sour cream.
