I called my mom and asked her how to make chicken soup not from scratch, because I have always started with a whole chicken. I ended up buying a rotisserie chicken, some broth in a box, some veg, and assembling it, throwing some matzo balls into the mix. I am not kidding, I am so good at chicken soup. And while I was not making things from scratch, I made stuffing from a box and mashed potatoes from a bag. I'm full and happy.
