For the most part, Crystal considers chicken noodle soup a comfort food. So when I noticed her begining to get sick, I decided to make some. This particular blend of spices came from my Cajun mix. Beyond that, I just decided to call it “Cajun” because it flows together nicely.
While I would usually discourage using chicken noodle soupe from a can, cans provide a shortcut. You can used canned broth, canned chicken, and canned veggies. This shortcut makes putting together a soup quick and easy. Similarly, you can premix your spice combinations.
I grew up in Colonia Juarez, Chihuahua, México, where people either owned cattle ranches or fruit orchards. Much of my work ethic came from working on Rancho La Mesa (my family’s ranch). That ranch also sparked what grew into my wild imagination. I read somewhere that you should write the story you want to read, and that stuck with me. My writing began in sixth grade, around the time I began learning to type.
