sometimes i cook: chicken noodle soup

what you need:
one large onion
four carrots
four celery stalks
twenty-eight ounce can whole tomatoes
one teaspoon sugar
two and a half cups chicken stock
one package wide egg noodles
cavender's greek seasoning
sea salt

cover chicken with water in large pot and bring to a boil. once water is boiling, change the temp to med-low and add diced onion, sliced carrots and sliced celery. once chicken is cooked (approximately  twenty minutes) remove from water and set aside. add diced tomatoes (i only use half of the can...if you can find good whole tomatoes in a smaller can, please for the love of god, let me know), sugar, cavendars (to taste - i use approximately one tablespoon), salt and pepper to taste and simmer for thirty minutes. once the chicken has cooled, shred it with a fork and add it back to the pot. Add the noodles and again, just simmer until the noodles are done and then do you know what you have? my husband's favorite meal. enjoy!
