Presvytera Joanna’s Soup

On May 6, Pres. Joanna Christofidis made the soup. It was so good, the guys thought I made it. She emailed me her recipe. Here is her email:

Christ is Risen!

Dear Cranford,

I thought you might like the recipe for the soup.  I altered the original and this is what I threw in.

I used 4 rotisserie chickens
6 lbs. of corn
6 lbs. of string beans
2 1/2 lbs. of carrots
2 1/2 heads of celery
8 sprigs of fresh rosemary
Greek oregano
chicken base
very little salt
10 medium sized potatoes
1 container organic low sodium chicken broth
1 container organic vegetable broth
3 packs of fresh parsley
3/4 stick of butter
3/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil
3 lbs. of onion
4 packs of pot pie noodles
1 box of pin wheels pasta
at the end I put around 1 cup of half and half you can use milk or you don’t need it at all.

It was great we had a lot of help tonight.  Glory be to God!

In Christ’s love,
Pres. JC
