Penny wise?


You know you're getting batty when someone tossing out a 'perfectly good turkey carcass' sends you into such paroxysms of anxiety that you have to come back from the holiday, rummage through the crisper drawer, and simmer up a big pot of stock from all the peels and hirsute ends of root vegetables, just to restore a sense of equilibrium.

Actually, I did the same thing today with some leftover ham from my family Thanksgiving! The stock made some fabulous split-pea soup, ideal for a cold, rainy Sunday.

Maybe the bamboo and tar paper are taking a bit far.

Slowly, surely, we become our grandmothers...

I stole the turkey carcas from my inlaws, made a lovely stock, then took the leftovers in my 'fridge: roasted yams, roasted garlic, fresh sage and thyme, evaporated milk, and then some sauteed onions for good measure and made a killer soup for the snowy days. Delish!

Ok, I'm jealous of all of you and your meaty stocks! Lazy MF is right: bamboo and tar paper are wanting substitutes.
