I have a crock pot of chicken broth coming up to a simmer. I used 2 Walmart rotisserie carcasses, 3 TB of Better Than Bouillon Chicken broth base, some onion, carrot, celery and Mrs. Dash seasoning. Now I’ll get my shower, toddle off to work and while I’m gone it will simmer away. When I get home a few hours later I will remove everything from the pot and strain the broth off. Then I’ll pick the chicken meat from the carcasses and probably eat the celery and carrots if they have any flavor left in them. Then I’ll pour the broth back in the pot and add a new batch of onions, celery and carrots, and when they cook up near tender I’ll add frozen veggies and let it cook another 1/2 hour until tender and add the chicken meat last. I’m omitting my usual pearl barley. I’ll add cooked angel hair pasta to the soup before I serve it. Sometimes I reheat the soup on the stove and cook one serving of the broken up pasta in the broth.
I have just made a pot of Kielbasa Corn Chowder this morning for tomorrow’s soup supper at the local Methodist church. After I get a shower I will make the second pot. I already posted the recipe.
Remember how I’m making Kielbasa Corn Chowder for the church soup supper? Well this morning my father and I went to the local farmer’s stand for some corn so I can blanch it and freeze it even though I make the soup Thursday. He is a relative and he had a sign up saying, no corn for a few days until the field is ready. So we drove down the road to another farmer- not a relative. They charged $5.00 for a dozen and I bought 2 dozen. Most of the ears are beautiful but some have turned to brown mush on the tip where a worm settled in. I just break those tips off and shove the ear in the stainless steel dutch oven I’m steaming the corn in. I can only fit 9 ears in the pot because they are so big! While I was at the stand I had 3 extra dollars to spend but the only thing I needed was garlic. I was totally shocked to see their garlic selling for $2.00 a small head! I refused to buy it of course. I’ll get mine somewhere else, even at Walmart!
I bought a 5 and 3/4 LB package of chicken breasts and only one of the seven was a complete breast. The rest of them were just the top half of the breast. The tender and the part that would have been connected to the ribs were missing.What is going on here?
Hundred-year-old advertisements that pique my interest generally make me smile. This one didn’t. I found the ad upsetting., and it raised so many questions: When did companies first start selling commercial products that were advertised for use as a baby formula? What information, other than advertisements, was available to help parents decide how to feed […]
