I used to love those books, didn't you?
So it's Sunday and I'm feelin' a little better. I'm still very sore but I'm findin' it easier to get up and down and I'm still walkin' around which helps so much. Mom was here this weekend takin' care of me (Thanks, MOM!) while the hubby worked. I'm so thankful she was here; hubby's good around the house and all but Moms are SO much better, aren't they? She did our laundry, did dishes, cooked dinner for her and hubby, and made me a big pot o' Chicken Soup. Ahhhh. Readin' other people's blogs and what they had week 1, I NEVER understood how you could actually enjoy just plain ole' chicken broth. But I craved it all weekend! Just something homey, savory, warm, and almost meal like sounded so wonderful to me. And it was. :) Of course, I didn't have the whole soup. Once it was finished, we took the chicken and veggies out, de-boned and shredded the chicken, put the chicken and veggies in sealed containers, and froze it for my week 3 when I can have soft chicken and veggies. We also divided the chicken broth into containers, poured me a hot steamy glass, put one container in the fridge, and the rest in the freezer.
Mama's Chicken Broth
1 whole chicken
Carrots (use any veggies you want!)
Salt & Pepper
Mrs's Dash Garlic and Herb Salt Free Seasoning
Put all in a big bowl, boiled it together until the chicken was fully cooked.
Don't forget to skim the top to remove the fat. Once the broth cools the fat separates to the top and it'll be easier to remove the fat.
Hope you enjoy. :)
