``Whatever's lying around'' Chicken Noodle Soup

You start with spaghetti noodles, boil them in water with salt and butter until they are about half cooked, then drain and fill with a bit more water than you want broth (because the noodles will soak up a bunch). Bring to boil, add chicken bullion according to directions. Add things like onion powder,garlic powder, chopped chives, dried sage, any spare vegetables laying around (or meat, for that matter), thyme, basil, etc. Whatever you have except for ginger or cinnamon and the like. Chili powder isn't too bad either. If you want dumplings, before the broth is boiling with the noodles, take a bowl and mix together flour and water and a little bit of salt (salt to taste) so you have a really gooey sticky pasty mess. Pick up by fingerfuls and fling (because it's the only way to get it off your fingers) into the boiling broth. Boil for awhile. Examine noodles. Examine dumplings. Burn fingers. Burn tongue. Lose spoon into soup. Declare done !
