Easy Chicken Noodle Soup

I love, love, love soup. The smells that waft through the house when it's simmering away and the way it warms you from the inside out...I just can't get enough. And finally...FINALLY! Soup weather in Phoenix!

I've been waiting for this day. I've been keeping the ingredients on hand just in case (I've lived in Phoenix most of my life and I still hold out hope for a real fall day!) the day snuck up one me; I didn't want to risk missing it. And I didn't miss it. I enjoyed every single spoonful of this easy and comforting chicken noodle soup.
