In one of my rushes through Aldi, the stored famed for its prices (and not even on the map when it comes to quality) I picked up a can of chicken noodle soup. Not paying attention all that much to the various brands, I got the one that looked the largest and made a dash for the check out.
To my horror, it turned out to be condensed chicken noodle (a qualifier that never bodes for food). Rather than throwing out a meal I thought I’d spice it up a bit. The can itself had plenty of noodles, a good amount of broth, and only a dash of chicken.
What I added:
1 Handful Chopped Carrots
1/2 of a Polska Kielbasa
Dash of Basil Herbs
A few dashes of Chili Powder
What I ended up with was anything but bland or condensed. My meal turned out excellently, leaving me ready to face the afternoon without the fear of becoming drowsy.
