This is a really good soup for a cold day.

1/8 tsp. Mace

1 sm. bunch of Parsley

1 med. Sliced carrot

1 tsp. Curry powder

1/8 tsp. cloves

1 med. Sliced onion

1/3 c. Flour

Boil chicken in water until tender. Remove chicken from pot, dice and set aside. Add all other ingredients except for flour. Cook until veggies are cooked.

This is an old favorite from a few years ago…
