break the bones after you pick all the meat off and put the bones in the pot. That's when I add vinegar (supposed to leach extra calcium from the bones into the broth).

I do the same. I brown my whole chicken a bit and add onions and garlic. I cook the onions down, then cover with water. When the chicken is cooked, I remove it. I have a strainer ladle to help get any pieces that may fall off. Then add my veggies and stuff. Making soup tomorrow or Friday. My son wants Matzoh Balls.

So you make your broth or stock first! I usually make broth and freeze it or use store bought..... never thought to do it all in one step!! . Learned something new!!

Meat is already off bones except legs and wings, how much vinegar and what kind for say a gallon of stock with bones? That would be great to get as much calcium into broth as possible.

Oh how I miss sweet Hawaiian rolls.

If anyone has any ideas on what to make, besides stock and salad, with leftover rotisserie chicken, I'd appreciate it.

I've become addicted to Olive Garden salad dressing! It is so good, but I refuse to read the ingredients label.

I like olives too. omg. now I want some and we dont have any.....(wonder why)
Well.....not true exactly. We have a few small cans of black sliced olives which are usually used for adding to a frozen pizza... I call it *doctoring* a pizza. Extra cheese, olives maybe some fresh basil......
Or left over chicken meat.....
makes for my franken pizza

the usual pizzas we get (frozen) come with cheese and pepperoni.
So I just add whatever I have to *enhance* those.
Usually turns out better or way better

Well, for the most effortless of dinners (mind you, I live in a house where I'm taking care of the senior member, and his daughter likes to eat out), tonight I had left-over broccoli and peaches I had sautéed because they were mealy (it makes them perfect) both doused in a marinade I'd made a few nights ago for salmon (soy sauce, lemon, oil, ginger, OJ, garlic). The marinade went equally well with the broc and the peaches (!) and the refrigerator was 3 containers cleaner, lol.

I can't remember the last time I actually went into a grocery store. I go Wal Mart pick-up and if Wal Mart doesn't have it I do without.

Oh I like shopping but I'm not going to every store I see and spend an hour there!! I have to be in the shopping mood also. I am pretty quick if I'm with someone else I usually know what I want and just get it done quick.

Its been weird here too. We had a few hotter days again and then some rain. Then sunshine. Now icy roofs and windshields in the morning.

Just glad the upper 90's and 100's are over for a while. I also hate the cold. Not looking forward to it. The other day it was cold inside the house, so I made my first fire in the woodstove. OMG! I got it so hot! And it stayed hot the whole next day!
Made another fire yesterday but it didnt get so hot. I didnt shut down the vents.

Trying to think of what to do with the pork chops I got out. Dont want to fry, or bbq.
Maybe I'll just throw them in the oven. I dunno. (they are boneless, and thick)
any easy ideas???
