Winter food

It's getting colder out. There was a little 'frost on the pumpkin' this morning. I guess I am going to have to go buy and ice scraper. I am not use to parking my car outside in the winter, but now that is what I have to do.

What are you making to keep you warm this winter? I need to make a pot of Darn Good Homemade Chili. I will freeze it and have it all winter long. YUM!!

Mel, I like soups, stews and a pot of beans with cornbread in winter. Sometimes I cheat using canned chicken noodle soup, add extra broth, a couple stocks of small dice celery, a bit of onion and 1 small dice carrot. When veggies are tender I add a couple handfuls of extra thin packaged egg noodles, cook until noodles are tender. Great for a quick semi homemade dinner. You can also add a small can of chicken breast, but I don't. We would rather put peanut butter on our crackers, to kick up the protien.

That should have said, stalks or ribs of celery.

I made a big pot of chili and we had big bowls w/saltines, plus a bowl for honey's lunch, then divided and froze. Last night hubby made chili and Fritos salad. Yum ! We have enough in the freezer to have chili over rice (and some for his lunch) for a meal next week ! Nothing to waste :)

Sounds wonderful Millie. I love good chili.
I made some turkey and rice last weekend. I boiled the carcass and made really wonderful stock, then added carrots, celery, a bay leaf and rice along with a bit of thyme. It is really good. Of course I divided it up for the freezer. I brought a container for lunch today. YUM!

You know, Millie, it was the first time I made stock from a cooked carcass. I will do that again for sure. I normally save up raw chicken back bones and wing tips to make my chicken stock.

Some will roast the carcass before boiling, for extra flavor. I haven't done that yet, but sounds good.
