New Year's Eve grub

We don't exactly celebrate New Year's Day, but we do take it as another excuse to make a nice meal or two. It's a dreary day here in western Washington, so we decided to make a nice spicy wok full of Kung Pao Chicken. Thankfully, we decided this before the local Asian grocery stores closed early for the night, as we were out of many of the necessary ingredients.

For lunch I made up a breakfast egg sandwich. I call the Egg McMuffins, though I don't go to McDonalds, so I have no idea how they compare. Okay, that isn't really true, I know that nothing from McDonalds can compare to whole grain english muffins, breakfast sausage from pasture raised pigs, 3-year aged cheddar and farm fresh eggs.

So much for thawing out the chest freezer

With the extra days at home because of the weather this winter I went through all of my stock bones and vegetable scraps in the freezer and made almost three gallons of turducken stock. I just combined all of the bird bones from the last few months into my biggest stock pot and let it cook down.

One gallon of stock was frozen into quart containers, a half gallon was frozen into one and two cup containers, and the rest was used to make four soups: broccoli, butternut squash, cauliflour, and turkey bean.

The house is nice and warm and smells really good right now and I have plenty of soups for lunches and dinners for a while. I just will not be able to empty out the chest freezer this month like I had originally planned.

Valentine's dinner

When I went to the chiropractor yesterday, the receptionist and the chiropractor's wife were telling me that it's the guy's job to cook a romantic dinner for the girl on Valentines Day. i guess that might make sense, if it is the girl that is always doing the cooking, but in our house, the most romantic dinners are the ones we make together. It isn't the part where we are being served, it's sharing the experience.
