TASTY TUESDAY: Chicken Soup for the Cold

Today is a rare day for us...we are participating in Sugar and Kol's
Tasty Tuesday....

it is rare because Mom doesn't cook my food
but she does cook GOOD food.
Lots of our two legged friends have nasty colds and the ickies.
Mom turned on my battery operated Pottery Barn
candle to let them know we hope they feel better soon

And Mom made a crock pot of Chicken and Rice soup
for their colds.

We thank Ms. Kit @ Dog Daze (blog currently on hiatus) for the recipe!!  Easy peasy too

  9. Thanks for sharing the recipe with us Madi. That sure looks really yummy. Mommy is going to print it out and try it in our crock pot (once Santa gives it to Daddy that is). She bought him a crock pot last year for our NY house and he's been having so much fun with it. Mommy is thrilled that he is learning to cook it in bcuz she gets tired sometimes of cooking.
