|My servants wear red well...|
Just popping in between housework and the noon-ish showing of Little Paris Kitchen... when I will take a break for a yogurt snack and enjoy Rachel Khoo make the most scrumptious looking food in her tiny kitchen.
I have been fairly busy this morning, a sort of cleaning by tweaking technique as I decided to do a little indoor work while I wait for the out-of-doors to warm up. Once my cooking program is over, I must slip on gardening gloves and begin the overwhelming job of trimming our front hedges. It may take
Later this afternoon I will "make soup" from the turkey broth in the stockpot. It has been sitting patiently in the refrigerator now for a couple of days letting all the fat congeal to the top.
By dinnertime, it will be transformed into turkey noodle soup. The day I roasted the turkey, it smelled just like Thanksgiving! I purposely walked out of the house to walk back in and breath in the aroma. Of course, there were none of the glorious sides I make only on that Holiday but it was still "a good thing".
So, we've had turkey for a couple of days and some of the meat has been placed in the freezer for casseroles. The carcass went into the stockpot where it simmered for a few hours to become a rich broth. Tonight it will make its' soup appearance after playing a starring roll as turkey with mashed potatoes the first night and a contributing role in a chef's salad last night.
I really do have other posts planned but they will all have to wait their turn for the gotta do's of the season... that being lawn and garden season, not Thanksgiving.
Oh, yes... I am enjoying Candy Cane Lane tea thanks to a wonderful Christmas gift. I did share one of the boxes with my daughter-in-law a couple months ago when she had a rumbly tummy... but otherwise it is mine, all mine. ;)
