We have snow

And it is blimmin freezing.  Hopefully the trains will be running this morning as I am off to work in just over an hour. The  hot and spicy chicken and veg broth was a very welcome thing to come home to last night. We each had a very generous portion and there is enough for tea today if I serve it with some rice to fill up the plate. The slow cooker is back on with a good hot meal simmering slowly for tomorrow... Am I dead organised or what?  :-) It will have developed loads of flavour by tomorrow night and will be lovely to come home to. I am tempted to ask one of our local farm shop butchers if I can buy some beef bones for stock making.  They can go in the slow cooker and will make a lovely nourishing basis for meals. Hope you all stay safe and warm today. If you don't need to go out today then don't. Stay home by the fire with a good book or a crafting project and a nice cuppa.

  3. Our butcher gives us bones for free when we ask him. I usually roast them before adding them to the stock pot for a gorgeous rich brown stock.
    Stay safe out there.
    Hugs-x-

    1. That sounds really tasty. I am looking forward to trying it. How long should I roast the bones for?

  4. Roast the bones first and the stock will be twice as good, my butcher is only too happy to supply me with bones. If I call on the right day i get a few chicken carcasses as well. It has been cold and blustery here but no snow.
