Tomatillo Chicken Soup

2 whole chicken breasts, skinless
1 onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 pound tomatillos, husked and quartered
1 Russet potato, peeled and quartered
1 teaspoon dried oregano
2 chili peppers, stemmed and seeded
4 cups chicken stock
3 cups water
Kosher salt and ground peppercorns to taste
1/4 cup sour cream
2 to 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves

In a large pot over medium heat, add chicken, onion, garlic, tomatillos, potato, oregano, chili pepper, chicken stock, and water; cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer until chicken is tender and the meat falls from the bone, about 30 minutes. Remove chicken from the pot set aside to cool. Once the chicken has cooled, remove the bones and shred. Remove the soup pot from the heat and let the vegetables and broth cool slightly. Purée the vegetable and broth in batches in a blender. To serve, spoon a small amount of shredded chicken into soup bowls and pour over it. Top with sour cream and cilantro.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
