Week in review: 6/1/2012

I bought a new wheeled backpack from IKEA. It holds all of the gear that I need to bring back and forth to the office, and it zips apart into two separate backpacks. Yesterday, it hauled two laptops, a tablet, a large thermos of coffee, several notebooks, a portable hard drive, and a pair of shoes.
Lisa sent us a sock monkey for wine.
We wash empty sour cream containers, and then use them to freeze chicken broth. One container holds 2 cups of frozen chicken broth, which is the ideal amount for cooking. To make chicken broth, we start with the bones and skin from a cooked chicken. Cover with water, and add onion and a few parsley sprigs, and simmer for 2 hours. Here are 4 containers of cooled broth ready to go into the freezer.
In the evenings, Dave and I frequently make little trays of snacks before dinner. Whether it’s just for us, or we have guests over, hardly an evening passes where we don’t prepare a little appetizer plate.
