Then I tossed the remainder of the magazine in the garbage.
When I got home this afternoon, I filed away the pages I tore out.
I need to toss out a lot more, but that's a start. I will work on it this week.
I made some chicken noodle soup for dinner tonight.
I decided to brown the cut up chicken breasts right in the soup pot so I could get some fond. (I can't believe I already found an opportunity to use our new word!) Some people just throw the raw chicken in the boiling pot or use precooked chicken, but I think the broth tastes much better if you have a little something to deglaze before you add the chicken stock.
I also used this tiny little pasta.
I love different pasta varieties. This one is a nice size to scoop up with a spoon.
I bet a lot of you were busy making super bowl appetizers this weekend. We don't get all that jazzed over the Super Bowl. I think DH is watching it right now, but he's by himself and has no munchies. I will hit the channel changer every now and then to try to catch a commercial. I couldn't care less about the actual game. If I bought a square in one of those Super Bowl pools, I might watch the end of each quarter just to see if I won. But I didn't, so I won't.
I can't believe it's already time to go back to work. Next weekend I will have to stay home so I can get some much needed cleaning done.
