Alphabet Soup

One of the very first things I wanted to re-instate in the new house was cooking with Mike... and now Addy, too! We love Barney's Alphabet soup song and making a pot has been on Mike's To-Do list for awhile. I started by boiling the ABC pasta in chicken broth, while Mike used his kid safety knife
to dice up some ham. Addy pretty much ate the ham as fast as Mike could cut, but it all worked out in the end!
It is so much fun watching them proudly eat what they made... veggies and all!
And let's not forget learning a bit, too.
Alphabet Soup
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 3 cups of water
  • 1 pkg of ABC pasta
  • 1 can of mixed veggies
  • 1 to 2 cups of diced pre- cooked turkey ham
Boil pasta in chicken broth per package directions. Turn stove to low and add in drained can of veggies and ham. Let simmer for 5 minutes. When reheating soup add more water or chicken broth to pot.

Let's go make something,
