What a fun fun day today is turning out to be. Two exciting things have happened today. One planned. One by luck.
I am blogging over at An Oregon Cottage today. I obsessively follow her blog and wish I was half as good at decorating my home as she is. She is also a wonderful cook and, like me, tries to feed her family frugally but well. My favorite trick that I learned from her is that you can cook and freeze dried beans. I haven’t purchased canned beans since I read that post.
Today I am talking about making your own chicken stock. I am truly too lazy to let a pot simmer on the stove all day so I make my stock in my enormous pressure canner. Go read the post. It is awesomely easy and then you will always have the very best stock on hand.
I got picked up by foodgawker.com today. If you are unfamiliar foodgawker is “a photo gallery that allows you to visually search and discover new recipes, techniques and ingredients to inspire your culinary adventures. We publish food photography submitted by food bloggers from around the world. Our editors review hundreds of submissions daily and choose the highest quality, most appealing images to showcase.” In short- your pictures better be good. And mine was. I am over the moon. Just in case you missed the photo yesterday here it is again. FYI this is a complete unedited photo. I am stupidly proud.
Thanks for being my reader.
