30 Minute Chicken Noodle Soup

Mondays seem to be particularly difficult for me.  It’s to be expected I guess.  There have been dozens of songs written all about how terrible Mondays are.  I mean, how could the Mamas and Papas possibly be wrong?

I try to start out with a good attitude and my game face on.  Then, on days like today, Monday throws a few curve balls.  By 1:30 this afternoon I was ready for a short {or not so short} siesta.  Unfortunately, the likelihood on any given day of me getting a nap is about as likely as the Ravens winning the Superbowl.  What!?  They did?  Oh.  That explains it then.  I did take a short nap today.  Granted, it was slouched in a chair that I sat in to begin working but a nap is a nap.

When I nap and/or have a gazillion things to do, which were both the case today, 30 Minute Meals are my cure for everything.  And when it’s been a tough day I tend to reach for comfort food.  Not only is this chicken noodle soup comforting but it’s quick and gives a good dose of veggies.
