The Mama is broken. She got up like normal and abandoned us in favour of that jerk, Job this morning like normal, but then, outta no where she came back. I’m not going to mince words here, the Mama looked like vick. Pale as Maltese, shaking like a chihuahua, the Mama was in rough shape.
She looked like she does when Auntie Rissy feeds her too much special juice.
But she wasn’t juicin’ it up the night before. the Mama was legit sick. She wanted ginger ale and noodle soup stat, but let’s face it. the Mama would need to have the bubonic plague before she ate can soup.
Luckily, it is way too easy to throw together a quick Koly noodle soup.
The best part? Koly Noodle Soup is dog friendly.
Oh – and it doesn’t actually contain any Koly, just chicken and noodles. Well, and maybe a few Koly hairs. Everything around here contains a few dog hairs. They are good for a little added fibre 😉
Koly Noodle Soup
4 cups low fat, low sodium chicken stock
3 chicken breasts, diced quite small or left over chicken, ripped up
2 cups Aunty Seal-Yak’s Pasta or any dried gluten-free pasta
3 stalks of celery
1 clove garlic
1/2 tsp. poultry seasoning
OPTIONAL HUMAN GARNISH ONLY: 1 stalk chopped green onion
Bring chicken stock to a gentle boil, toss in diced chicken, carrots & celery. Dice or press garlic or if you are super cool like Mama, use this special little plate sacred to the purpose. (I don’t think I’m overstating this at all when I say it is the single most amazing garlic tool on the face of the planet. BUY ONE. *right now* You won’t regret it. – Jodi**). Um, sorry to interrupt your lady-wood about the garlic plate Mama, but BACK TO THE RECIPE –> Place the garlic & poultry spice in the water. Allow to cook until chicken is done, about 7 – 10 minutes.
If you are using dried pasta, add pasta and cook for another 7 – 10 minutes.
If you are using fresh pasta, add pasta and cook for 2 – 3 minutes.
Spoon into dog bowls and allow to cool slightly. Spoon into human bowl and garnish with onions***. Enjoy a bowl of soup with your pups! It’s THAT EASY!
***NEVER EVER EVER feed your dog onions. Aside from being super dangerous and risking hemolytic anemia, have you ever smelled a dog with onion breath? Not pleasant.
**Please note that we received no promotional consideration from the nifty garlic plate people, though we seriously should, ’cause Mama spends a ridiculous amount of time talking up these things.
Koly noodle soup is highly renowned as a miracle cure around our house. Noodle soup, some ginger ale, a puggle napping on your chest squeezing all the “sick air” out of your lungs and we’re all feeling right as rain in no time.
