Chicken Stock in a Vingage Pot

Let’s Face it, you need a BigArse Pot for making Chicken Stock!

Last night, I found some Bare Chicken on sale at Hy-Vee for $4. FOUR DOLLARS A CHICKEN!!! That is unheard of. The tricky part was those wonderful Organic, sort of Local Chickens “expired” tomorrow, so I had to either freeze them or cook them. I figured as long as I was cooking one of them, I’d cook both.

Who Cut the Pineapple?

I buy a LOT of fruit…..especially when Alice comes to GrammaCamp. That girl can eat a whole container of raspberries! She loves every fruit, and I try to get Fresh whenever possible……instead of canned, which is fine, too.

I’ll be getting more pineapple and using this tool. Next time, I will cut the pineapple and put it back in the “pineapple shell” for Alice. This time, I stored the slices in one of my Weck Jars. It fit Perfectly. Love storing things in Glass.
