Chicken and Fish Ball Noodle Soup

I can’t believe it’s October already.  I still wear Capri pants to work but I can feel that fall is here. Mornings and nights are getting colder, leaves are changing their color and pumpkins are everywhere. Yes, definitely fall is here. Hence, soup was the first thing that came to my mind when I was preparing dinner.

This recipe is another way of making use of left-over roast chicken meat and bones.  It is only my husband and I in the house so I have so much left-over roast chicken from lunch.  I used some for the soup and the rest for chicken salad sandwich. This noodle dish is another versatile dish; you can add any meat, seafood or vegetables you want.  A hot bowl of this hearty and satisfying noodle soup is a perfect dinner on a cold fall night :)
