    We are having leftover stir-fry from last night.

    That is good, because at 10:30 or so Saturday evening, there was a resounding crash in the bedroom closet as the rack gave way, and the clothes came tumbling down. I had not wanted to do a Rubbermaid wire shelf; my husband now sees my point. The metal brackets are just not meant to hold that kind of weight. At the moment, we are using some freestanding clothes holders that I saved when we moved, and we are using the downstairs closet, where I insisted we put back the metal rod. The wooden shelf over it, with an additional supporting bracket in the center is working fine.

    I have dinner handled. Any advice on closet systems? 🙂

    Today I processed another 5-gallon pail of tomatoes from the garden, now ready for the freezer. I used some of that to make a sauce with ground beef, and served that on penne. It’s probably the best tasting sauce I’ve every made, and I’ve been making it for 34 years!

    Without knowing the dimensions of your closet, I can’t recommend specifics. We had our closets custom built, but I like the modular metal shelves like these:

    Shelving

    They come in a variety of lengths, depths and height and there are numerous accessories such as baskets and hanging rods.

    We have a number of these in the basement to keep things off the floor, which occasionally get a little water when it rains They’re the type that restaurants use and they’ll hold several hundred pounds per shelf. I’ve seen kitchen staff climb on them.

    I’m making chicken broth/stock today, using a whole chicken. About half of the broth/stock will wind up as chicken soup, probably tomorrow.

    Tonight we had BLTs. Tomorrow my husband will pick one last pail of tomatoes, all the peppers, cabbage, raspberries, and anything else except the brussels sprouts, as we have a predicted freeze of 30* here tomorrow night. I will be camping (brrrr) at the Vermont Sheep and Wool Festival this weekend, where the temp is predicted to be as low as 25*.

    The soup broth/stock and most of the chicken meat will chill in the fridge overnight, I’ll probably do the chicken noodle soup tomorrow. Chilling the liquid overnight helps to get the rest of the fat out of the broth/stock as it rises to the top and even if it isn’t totally solid it is still easier to skim off. I did use some of the chicken meat to make a batch of chicken salad for supper, but it was a pretty big chicken, 5.6 pounds.

    I made a stuffed acorn squash for dinner. I diced some onion and carrot and cooked it with some ground chicken. Added some chicken broth to keep it moist. When that was done I added a diced apple and cooked it until the apple was tender. I seasoned it with fresh sage from my garden and a little garlic powder. In the meantime I was roasting an acorn squash. When it was tender I stuffed it with the meat mix and returned it to the oven for about 10 minutes. It was pretty good, had it with some noodles.

    I don’t know if I’ll do that again. Fact is, stuffing it is more for presentation as everything is already cooked when it gets stuffed. Normally when I make an acorn squash, I stuff it with apples that I tossed with a little brown sugar and maybe a few chopped pecans or walnuts and even a few raisins. But all that goes in from the beginning and the apples and squash roast at the same time and the squash gets nicely flavored from the apple.
