“And He took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying,
“This is My body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me.”
Because we find ourselves in this specific spot in scripture this week, I thought it fitting to share Britton’s favorite chicken noodle soup recipe. This place in scripture is where we find the word “Eucharisteo” (read more about that here if you missed it) and I find myself experiencing much “eucharisteo” (if that can even be a verb to experience?!) when I prepare and eat this soup. Not only is it total comfort food (think warm, creamy goodness), it comforts me knowing Britton made this for her family, and I honor and remember her when I do, too. She was an excellent cook and brought many meals to people in need, even while she herself was suffering. So this week as we have enjoyed this soup for several meals (no shame there), we broke bread with it, gave thanks to the Lord for His goodness and remembered Him and Britt while we did. Watch the video and find the recipe below to see how…
