2. The Weather Outside was Frightful…

3. My MomVan is acting up. Leaking something. Making grinding metal sounds. I just turned it off and will wait for the Spring Thaw.

But what to eat? I’ve been saving bits of this and that in my freezer for

Free Soup!

Free Soup!

Homemade Chicken Stock…..some Frozen Onion, Carrot and Celery mixture…..some frozen Carmelized Onions…..Frozen Cooked Chicken….Broken Fettucini Noodles…..a few Almost Old Potatoes left from Christmas Dinner…..mix together and make something that smells like heaven and tastes even better!

I LOVE my stock pan and Ladle.

    You know that if I threw a bunch of leftover stuff together from my freezer it would taste like…a bunch of leftover stuff from the freezer! We got caught in the blizzard yesterday. I stayed at work until 7:30 p.m. (just in case we had to take stranded travelers), then spent the night in town at Natalie’s in-laws (with Nat and her kids – we had a slumber party!). I sent my kids home with neighbors at 3 p.m. (it took them an hour to get home – it usually takes 15 minutes). David was by his lonesome on the farm trying to keep the home fires burning. What a wintery day – we certainly do live in Nebraska!
