Sopa de Fideo Verde con Pollo

I had a few Cinco de Mayo recipes, cocktails to share this week, but at the moment I feel it’s inappropriate.

Those can wait. 

Our hearts go out to the families affected both in Boston and Texas.

I was listening to the broadcast concerning the families in Boston while a big pot of fideo simmered away on the stove.   I ladled bowls of soup, my girls set the table and we sat down to eat dinner.  Then we heard the news of West, Texas. 

One tragic event, followed by another. 

We spent almost 6 years in the near area while my husband served in the Military.  We would spend our weekend visiting local towns, and it is there exactly where I ate my first traditional kolache while pregnant with my second child.

Sweet people in a charming community, my heart goes out to them.

  1. Is it really May already? What a great beautiful flavorful dish!

  2. I think this soup sounds fantastic Vianney. I understand how you feel, I could hardly write a post after the Aurora Theater Shootings last Summer. I could not believe my eyes when I saw photos of the explosion in Texas. goodness.

  3. I love the simplicity of this but what is “fideo”. I think I’ve heard of it before but can’t place it. Will have to look for it.
