This recipe IS NOT the same as the one in Mom's handwriting.
This was ALWAYS the first course at our family holiday gatherings. We'd alternate between our house and Uncle Jimmie's. Mom was the only one who made the soup though.
In later years, Margie became the "soup lady".
We called it soup with little meatballs. Restaurants began serving something called "Italian Wedding Soup".
When we attended a funeral in Midland (I think it was Uncle Nickie's), this was the soup they served. Muggy nicknamed it "Wedding and Funeral Soup".
Great for cold, blustery days!
A great way to start the winter, or feed a cold. There is nothing like a nice warm home-made bowl of chicken soup when you are not feeling well or want to just warm the soul! My kids love this home-made soup. Not so much the making of the chicken part but the eating part!
I just served this as the main dish along with some fresh out of the oven (unbelievably simple to make) Crusty Rustic Bread and some fresh garlic butter. To make the garlic butter I just combine 1 small clove of crushed garlic with 1/4 cup softened butter then season it with salt and fresh ground black pepper. It's a simple and amazing dinner that everyone will love. Enjoy!
