So after the fried rice debacle I had do do something with the chopped carrot, celery, and onion I had left over. I threw them into a pan with some salt, pepper, and olive oil to give them a little flavor.
In the meantime I dumped a can of chicken stock and a pound or so of shredded chicken I had in the freezer into the crock pot.
I poured the sauteed veggies on top and gave it all a stir. After about 4 hours the house smelled wonderful and I had some delicious soup for this week's lunches.
