Bone broth in summer? I say: why not?

Of all the things to cook on a hot day, I decided today I needed to make bone broth.

copyright Writer of Words, etc.

I like a good quality stock. It is so versatile and goes beyond soups. When I run out I sorely miss it.

I ran out a few weeks ago.

The flavour, the healthful properties, everything is improved in homemade stocks and broths. Right? I can also control the amount of salt. Most store-bought broths are way too heavily salted for my taste.

A surprise adventure (part 2)

Continuation of A surprise adventure (part 1)

By the time I returned from the other side of the neighbourhood with the kidnapped dog at about 9:15 am, my house smelled like bacon.

Then I saw the teenager at the table eating breakfast. My eyes almost fell out of my head… 😄

When I woke up, I felt a momentary flash of panic.

More creativity out of the pandemic kitchen

Please excuse the poor quality of the pictures. My phone obviously needs its eye cleaned…

I don’t have much fresh stuff in the house anymore (it’s been 7 days we’ve been staying home) and I feel too uninspired to venture out so I created a new salad with what I still have on hand.

Clearly, I’m not social distancing from my fridge as per my previous post… (ha).

More creativity out of my pandemic kitchen

So we’re keeping sane being under house arrest. Mostly by doing creative things. Like cooking. And art. And perfecting the art of Call of Duty gaming. (I don’t know…ask a teenager.)

Rice and corn casserole topped with cheese. Missing, greens…

It’s funny, really, I read about lock-downs in many places across the globe and they’re all talking about school work being assigned to children.

MINE have NONE.
