The other day I picked up a tomato plant. I know, I know, it is too early for tomatoes, but at 50 cents, I couldn't resist. I picked up a large pot for this little beauty and I am going to try to get tomatoes inside this year. I just have to remember to play bee with a Q-tip once the flowers bloom. If it doesn't look like I'll be successful, I'll just plant it outside.
Last weekend we roasted two chickens and used some of the thyme and rosemary inside the cavity of each bird. Now that I know how to make my own chicken stock, I couldn't let him throw away the bones from the chickens, so I made lots of stock this week. I used more thyme and rosemary in it, and it was delicious!! I already had another chicken carcass in the freezer for the next time I made stock, so I threw that in too. I also used carrots, onions, leeks, peppercorns, bay leaves, and lots of water. In the end, I had 20.5 cups, as well as one ice cube tray, of stock! (Hubby loves it when I freeze some stock into ice cubes...he used a bunch of them in some Queso he made the day we had the chickens, and the cubes were so handy!!
