Kids who are learning to read will get a kick out of spooning up words with this alphabet noodle soup.
1 medium onion, diced (1 cup)
2 tsp. vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups carrots, peeled and diced
1 48-oz. can chicken stock
1 cup diced celery
1 cup miniature alphabet pasta or
1 1/2 cups medium egg noodles
In a large stockpot, sauté the onions in the vegetable oil over medium heat until translucent (about 5 to 8 minutes). Add the carrots and chicken stock, cover the pot, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Add the celery and simmer another 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Turn off the heat and stir in the pasta. Cover the pot and let sit for 20 minutes (15 minutes if you're using egg noodles).
Makes 7 cups.
You'll need 6 to 8 pieces per skewer. Firm fruits such as melon, pineapple, kiwi and oranges work well. For the skewers, you can simply use plastic drinking straws.
To make each kebob, pinch the end of a straw and push it through a piece of fruit. Slide the fruit to the other end of the straw.
Add more fruit to fill the skewer with a range of colors.
