It's homemade from scratch, so the ingredients are approximate.
The stock.
5 chicken leg quarters.
6 quarts of water
1 bunch of celery leaves and all.
1 pound of carrots.
2 medium onions.
2 cloves of garlic.
4 bay leaves.
1 tsp. Dried basil leaves.
1 sprig of thyme.
1 tsp. of Accent.
Salt and pepper to taste.
Cook until the chicken is tender, remove it to cool. I also skim about half the fat from the stock at this point. Bring the stock back to a boil and add the egg noodles. When they are done, add the deboned chicken back to the pot.

Rather than trying to explain how I made noodles, this short video is spot on.

Looks yummy!! I started canning the 'base" for homemade chicken noodle soup a few years ago. Just open up a jar, add noodles (I'm too lazy to make my own so I use the store-bought kind), and heat and cook until the noodles are done. Never thought of adding basil though. Might have to try some the next go'round!

Supreme pizza a few days ago. We have homemade pizza and Stromboli several times a year, almost weekly starting in the fall, and through the winter. My dough recipe makes 4, 16" crusts. I make the dough a day ahead, but it really gets good if it's made a few days ahead and stored in the fridge. Any all purpose flour will work, but I like a high gluten flour best.

The sauce was made with fresh homegrown maters, oregano, basil, and garlic, just lightly cooked.

Looks great, but where do you do your shopping? $5.00?
Any, and everywhere. The chicken and celery came from Kroger.
Chicken leg quarters are cheap, I gave $5.90/ 10 lb. Bag for those, and used about half of them. 2 cups of flour for noodles, maybe $.25, a stalk of celery, $1.39. a couple of onions, water, and a few spices. Yes, $5 or less.
Thanks!

I must pay more attention. I've not caught the chicken quarters that cheap! I love chicken quarters!! That soup looked awesome!

Wal mart had the chicken thighs drumsticks etc on sale recently.

Cooked turnips an fried onions an fried taters tonight. I am about to bust.
Turnips, cooked or fried, with a pone of cornbread is one of my favorite meals EVER!

A few weeks ago a local Kroger had boneless skinless chicken thighs for $.39 lb. Needless to say, my freezer is well stocked!
