Yes, the title of my blog is a bit strange. Why you may ask did I title my blog this. Well I have often thoght about that chicken standing in the middle of the road and I had to swerve out of its way. I always seem to be encountering 'chickens' in the road of my life. Just when I am riding life's highway some big challenge comes and blocks my way in life. Sometimes I have to sit there and wait until it passes and be patient, and other times I manage to swerve around it and figure out how to deal with the block quickly. And then there are times that my rebellious side slams on the gas and drives right through it, haha
So see the full 'chicken in the road story' visit the post about it

Homemade Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup   (My family LOVES this recipe!)

Noodles: 1c. flour                  1 egg

1 can cream of chicken soup
1 c. diced celery
1/4 onion optional
2 c. baby carrots or diced carrots
