Vegetable Egg Drop Soup

i hope it's okay to post a recipe that i just made up. i'm sure it's a real recipe somewhere though. :)

this is what we're having for lunch today.

do not worry about amounts, just use however much seems right considering the size of your pot and the amount of soup you want to make. i suggest making a lot so you will have something to put in your husbands lunch later on.

use chicken stock or broth (is there a difference?) and boil the following vegetables in it until the carrots are sortof soft.

sliced baby carrots
sliced celery
chopped onion
minced garlic

add frozen peas and corn. return to boil. add elbow macaroni noodles & boil 7 min. add salt.

at some point remove some of the broth and put into another little pot. bring it to a boil and pour a thin stream of beaten eggs while stirring the broth. if you don't want to mess with the egg business, use cooked chicken or ground beef instead. today i didn't feel like thawing & cooking chicken, so i used eggs like an Asian.

when the noodles are cooked, add the egg mixture back to the pot.
i also added chopped green onions toward the end (negi, negi).

dish it up and let it cool off a little before calling your husband to the table so that he doesn't have to sit there and wait. or, if he typically prays long prayers, go ahead and call him right away, so it doesn't get too cold. :)

Yeah Georgia! Thanks for posting. Of COURSE it is okay to post a meal you just made up on here. Those are great! That's why this is called "Everyday Meals"
I enjoyed your humor as well. It made me smile. :)
