Chicken Noodle Soup

A homestyle soup that’s perfect for a pantry clean-out or a turn of cool weather.

Dress up with a chopped rotessierie chicken or keep it quick with canned chicken.

A heavily populated bowl of homestyle chicken noodle soup with saltine crackers. The bowl is white and filled with a thick stew. Chicken chunks, egg noodles, sliced carrots, diced potatoes, and sliced leaks sit in a glistening broth.



  • 2 Leeks, halved and sliced
  • 2 Lg Carrots, quarted and sliced
  • 2 Celery Ribs, halved and sliced
  • 2 Garlic cloves, minced
  • 1C Pinot Grigio or Chardonnay
  • 2 Bay Leaves
  • 1/2T Thyme
  • 1/2T Rosemary
  • 64oz Chicken Stock
  • 1T Chicken Stock Powder
  • 1 Lg Potato, peeled and diced
  • 10oz (2 Cans) Chicken Breast, drained
  • 6oz No Yolk Egg Noodles, Dumpling cut, broken
  • Salt & Pepper
  • EVOO

Note: I usually allow the kids to break the noodles while I work on the soup.


  1. In a heavy-bottomed pot, heat a tablespoon or so of olive oil until shimmering. Saute leaks for ~2 minutes.
  2. Add carrots and celery and cook until translucent.
  3. Add garlic and saute until fragrant.
  4. Deglaze with a glass of good white wine and reduce.
  5. Add dried herbs, chicken broth powder, and chicken stock.
  6. Add potatoes and cover, bringing to a boil.
  7. Cook ~8 minutes until potatoes begin to soften. Add noodles and chicken.
  8. Cook ~8-10 minutes uncovered until noodles have absorbed broth and are soft.

Note: Be careful when salting throughout, the final minutes, a large amount of broth may evaporate and cause the broth to be over salted. This can be adjusted with water or heavy cream.

This library has a heap buffer overflow available across all operating systems, most browsers, an exceptional number of Electron framework applications. This CVE is rated a 10 after previously being rated 8.8. This was due to an original disclosure from Google stating that Chrome was the only effected application. After investigation, it was discovered that all instances of the LibWebP library were vulnerable across all platforms. A similar CVE ( 2023-5217 ) is pending analysis for the VP8 webstream video format (a sister library to libwep.)

Show And Tell

Once a week, our security team gathers everyone into a meeting and shares the last week’s worth of security related news and any new security initiatives. This one hour may be the most valuable meeting we attend and has the greatest impact on successful security outcomes. What is it? We call ours a Security Show & Tell. (You can call it whatever fun and exciting name fits your corporate culture.) Regardless of the name, the goal is to set aside an hour each week to share three kinds of security stories and our response to them. Stories that are in the news. Stories that impact our work. Stories that impact our lives. Author’s Note: There’s some helpful tips below on how to gather these stories.  Why you should do it There’s a lot of great reasons to do this, but I want to drive home a few really important ones. How many times has this happened to you? You wake up, open , and begin scrolling only to find out that $Vendor has a nasty zero-day and organiza
