Chicken Rosemary Potato Bean Soup

(LYRICS ARE POSTED BELOW AFTER THE SOUP RECIPE)

Last night I made a variation of my Chicken Rosemary Potato Bean Soup since it’s September.  Feeling in the domestic mood, I also made a half batch Nestle’s Toll House Cookies and refrigerated the remaining cookie dough for later.  It’s amazing what you find yourself in the mood for when you were supposed to go to the gym! 

A few days later, Andy Stone,  my friend from England (the one who did the painting for my Christmas CD cover) left me a comment and suggested I write a song about it and I thought it was a great idea! As you can see I’ve uploaded the song to YouTube and the lyrics are after the recipe below.

Song Lyrics:

5:45 with evening descending
The night before us pending
Glad for the wood pile Stan stacked by the house
Stoke the fire before it goes out

Potato Bean Soup simmers to hot
Throw in some chicken (since that’s what we’ve got)
Light the candle I just bought
Throw the spices now into the pot

CHORUS:  CHICKEN ROSEMARY POTATO BEAN SOUP ON THE STOVE
LET’S ADD THE LENTILS THAT BENJAMIN JUST BROUGHT HOME (from the road)
WHAT WOULD BE PERFECT IS SOME PAN BIGIO (warmed on a stone)
HALF AN HOUR AND WE SHOULD BE GOOD TO GO

Call up Ashley and tell her the soup’s on
Why don’t you bring Billy; stay as long as you want
Or if you can’t stay take some home for tomorrow
I’ll tuck in the recipe so you can follow

Repeat Chorus

End: CHICKEN ROSEMARY POTATO BEAN SOUP FOR THE SOUL
