Welcome to Saturday's Potluck
“Learn the rules like a pro, so you can break them like an artist.”
The Covid disruption has changed some regular habits. For several years I have provided transportation for others to perform their grocery shopping. 17 months ago started to do weekly shopping instead with a list and learned the food stamps rules. It is quite different from the past when my Great Grandmother went to the local commodity store once a month.
Began to travel through the aisles, viewing product selections and prices totally absent from my normal shopping patterns. Soups are no longer a budget food. Wide variety of soup stocks and bases available to "make your own soup". Whole chickens were on sale this week and less than the quart of soup stock.
The chicken could be cut up for multiple meals and still make a couple of quarts of stock. It just takes a little time, knowledge and skill. Added benefit less packaging to throw in the garbage and less profit to a mega food corporation.
Christina Pirello makes a quick basic soup base in just a few minutes.
Christina's website has multiple soup recipes. While I enjoy vegetarian meals, not a purist. Often use her recipes as a starting point and do not use vegan substitutes. Also, we each have our own path to staying well and I don't use her advice as general health information.
Tips on chicken stock.
