I was making pelmeni the other day, and had some leftover dough. I don’t like wasting food especially when it is good stuff so I decided to ‘recycle’ it and make chicken noodle soup. It is an easy and hearty dish perfect for rainy winter days.
Making the soup brought back many of my childhood memories. When I was a kid and was spending summer with my Grandma (aka Baba Zina) in the country, we had a certain tradition: one or twice a season her friend Anna Nikolayevna (aka Baba Anya) would come over to make chicken noodle soup. I don’t know how they were arranging it back then with no cell phones, Internet and even land line in our country house but my Grandma always knew what day and time Baba Anya would come so we would dress up and go to the railway station to pick her up.
