I saved the pan drippings and two turkey breast carcass from dinner at my parent's. Today I tried my hand at making my own stock.
I used the new stock pot I received as a gift.
Oh my did my home smell good! The stock is now in refrigerator. I am letting it sit so that I can skim off the fat tomorrow and then I will be canning it. Yum! Yum!
I am not sure if I mentioned that Abe the little guy I watch has a little brother. Eli joined the fun here last week.
Eli is an easy baby and has fit right in around here. When Chuck returns to work I am sure we will easily find our new routine. It is such a joy to have this little baby to snuggle!
With some of the new things received for Christmas it feels like I have been doing laundry non stop. I am almost done and was so happy to get the new bedding for Megan's bed washed.
All of the washing from potty training had taken its toll on her old comforter. It was wearing thin and had been mended several times. Her new bedding is bright and sunny. I really like it and so does she.
It seems that I always get the urge to purge and organize as a new year approaches. My kitchen is going to be the first one on the list. I have a pile here and there on the counters of things that need to find a home.
It is going to get a deep cleaning and some tweaking. I am looking forward to finding the time to tackle this project.
I am not sure how much posting I will be doing the rest of the week. It will depend on how much time I have. Besides cleaning,organizing and a trip to the grocery store I have some important things to do this week. Like playing new board games with my family, baking cookies with Megan and having a family dinner at my parent's home.
Have a great week. I hope you are taking time to enjoy the simple moments!
