Grampapa's Chicken Soup

I told all my friends about my Grampapa and my Grandma, and how Grampapa makes chicken soup and it's really good. Now here's the recipe:

Chicken - Thighs and legs only. Not a whole chicken. (1 package from market - 6 legs and thighs - maybe 3 1/2 plus pounds)

8 cups of water
1/2 of a sweet Texas Onion diced (not a sharp flavor - more mild)
1 Tbsp salt
1 tsp nutmeg

Bring it to a boil and let it simmer for an hour.

Remove all meat and skin (draining the whole pot through a collander is best). Let it cool, then skim all the fat off as it hardens. Heat the broth back up and enjoy.

There you are. This will keep you young a very long time just like my Grandma and my Grandpapa. I figure they have at least another 20 good years left on their warranty.

PS - Grandma called yesterday and said the meat would be good in sandwiches if you want to keep that instead of throwing it away.

Love, Mary-Margaret

Mmmmmmmmmm, that sounds yummy! Maybe my mom will make it for me, but leave out the onions, cause dogs aren't allowed to have onions!
