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.
I’ve learned (the hard way) to always use a thermometer and/or a timer when cooking. I love my OXO digital thermometer. I am using this extra large pot I got from Dan’s Grandmother’s kitchen after she passed away a few months ago. It is quite large and has a copper top. I didn’t have a pot large enough for 2 chickens until now!
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.
Buying a cut-up Fresh Pineapple at Hy-Vee is convenient, but expensive. So I buy a fresh one, at half the price, and butcher it myself at home.
Enter the OXO Good Grips Ratcheting Pineapple Slicer. I recently bought one and Matt and I used it on a fresh pineapple. I admit I had to look at the directions but we figured it out easily. Speaking of easy……
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.
