I am very much thinking about the abundance that surrounds me. Husband, 2 kids, warm house. Just the basics. I did go through the Loma Prieta earthquake here in the Bay Area 20 years ago and remember the horror. I didn't sleep for many weeks, and each after shock renewed the terror That period seemed to go on forever - even though we had very little damage to our house.
I'm making chicken stock. I make chicken stock for a million reasons. It's soothing work. I feel very safe while making it. The house smells wonderful. A freezer full of home-made stock is all it takes to make me feel very rich. Try it. It's completely intuitive, but if a recipe is required, so be it.
The carcass from a previously roasted chicken
chicken parts and bones (don't waste the breast - use wings, legs. My butcher give me endless bones from the breasts he has fileted)
a few carrots
an onion, peeled and cut in half (or a leek or 2)
a stalk or 2 of celery
you can add bay leaf, thyme, garlic, a touch of curry powder (thanks ChezPim for that one) but these are just extras
Cover all with water plus an extra inch or 2 of water
Salt and pepper
simmer for 2 - 4 hours depending on your patience and need to eat said soup asap.
You can skim or not - I never do.
There. Feeling rich yet?
