Soup!? No really, I wanted to make rice pilaf

Occasionally I try to cook without a recipe. It never turns out well. Once I tried a new recipe when I planned on taking dinner to a new mother . . . she ended up with takeout. I tried to make a chicken, carrot and rice soup. My friend made one that was very tasty for us. I tried to duplicate it. I added to much rice, Will ate the chicken from the fridge and there was not enough seasoning. So as I dished up the “soup” AKA rice pilaf sprinkled with six pieces of chicken; Brianne said she wasn’t very hungry, Lizzy said she didn’t want any carrots and Jake put soy sauce on his. It is so satisfying to cook for appreciative and loving children.

BTW, I just counted 7 apple cores in the garbage can and two on the floor.
