Last night we had chicken thighs on the smoker, with a potato and a broccoli salad. I have turkey soup in progress for dinner tonight, with stock from the freezer, with celery, carrots, onion, orzo; and wheat-oat-flax buns.
We got home from my husband’s family reunion, and some subsequent shopping at stores in South Bend, which are rather far for casual travel, to browse and see what is available. I was able to pick up some specialty (for here) food items at T.J. Maxx, Tuesday Morning, and Big Lots. We also stopped at Walmart and Aldis, so as not to have to go shopping in the next small town for a couple of weeks. We got back around 3:30, and I pulled turkey/chicken broth out of the freezer, cut up some onion, celery, garlic and carrots, then added lentils and pearl barley. I added an additional tsp. of Penzey’s poultry seasoning (salt-free). I’m looking forward to this simple meal tonight.
We had creamed tuna on biscuits tonight, comfort food that sounded good to my wife, I think her stomach is on the mend. Plus, after it hit 92 on Wednesday, it got cold and rainy again, so something warm was REALLY good.
