On Sunday, I made turkey broth, using the frozen bones from our Christmas turkey. I also made the recipe for Oprah’s Kale, Butternut Squash, and Farro soup that I first made a month or so ago. As I did last time, I omitted the tomatoes. I also omitted the leeks, as I do not have access to them. I use two small butternut squashes, which is probably more than the recipe specifies, but we like it that way. The carrots in it are from our garden.
We have not had the very cold weather here in north central Indiana–at least not yet–but with temperatures in the 30s and 40s, soup is still a comforting food.0January 7, 2019 at 1:51 pm #14474
I have to empty the cupboard and freezer as we get ready to go south. I mixed up some tuna with finely chopped carrots and mayonnaise and put it on 4 large toasted bagel halves. I topped them with sharp provolone and broiled them. I served them with baked French fries (recipe from allrecipes). Pretty good if I do say so myself. BA,you are so good and I am so bad.0January 7, 2019 at 7:10 pm #14476
We’ve had two cold spells but it was in the 50’s again today.
We had creamed tuna on biscuits tonight, our older cat loves it, too.0January 7, 2019 at 7:15 pm #14478
I tried a new recipe on Monday, Braised Chicken with Apples and Sage (Gourmet, December 2005) from the Epicurious website. I used ten chicken thighs rather than eight, as that was what the package contained. My two other changes were to use onion rather than shallots and three Winesap rather than two Gala apples. I did not peel the apples. I served it with unpeeled, mashed Yukon Gold potatoes and steamed green beans. It’s a recipe that I’ll likely make again next fall or winter, as we liked the change from our usual chicken entrees.
The dog, who charms food from my husband, also approved!0January 9, 2019 at 6:54 pm #14487
I roasted a kabocha squash on Wednesday morning, the pureed it. I may use some of it for pumpkin bread.
Navlys–I do miss cheese on this low saturated fat food approach. I let myself have some part-skim Mozzarella in some recipes, and occasionally I have a stick of low-fat string cheese. Sigh. When we go to Florida, I shall look for 2% cheese in the grocery.
We had our first real snow today since the one in early November.0January 9, 2019 at 11:21 pm #14488

I made a marinade of vinegar,oil,worcestershire sauce,salt,pepper honey a tad of sugar,onion flakes and powder and lemon juice tasted kind of like oil and vinegar dressing.This was about one third cup and poured that on chicken tenders.Sauteed thinly sliced onions in saute pan then put chicken in with sauce and cooked till done,turning them several times.They turned out really good and we had a baked potato and seasoned green beans.0January 11, 2019 at 8:18 am #14491

It’s in the high 20’s here, we picked up somewhere around 9 inches of snow since yesterday afternoon, looks like it should end here in the next hour or two, just light flurries now.
I’m making a batch of custard this morning.0January 12, 2019 at 2:42 pm #14496
We are still eating delicious leftovers–no complaints about that!
We have had snow since this morning, and my husband is finally using the new snow shovel he bought in November.0January 12, 2019 at 6:30 pm #14498
