What are you eating Friday the 13th of April, 2018?

It’s supposed to be 80 degrees today but I feel like making soup. We’ll see what the day brings.

I thought it should be time to put away the soup kettle for the season, but Nooooooo

I went to the store this am and now have a pot of veggie soup on the back burner. Should keep me warm and toasty all weekend.

Hambone soup and freshly made bread. It's hot here, but we'd hardly ever have soup if we waited for cool weather. Funny how soup is becoming a trend tonight.

Soup won't be trending here until Sunday. It's supposed to be in the 30s and "yuck". That's an official NWS term, right?

I have a fine assortment of leftovers. Hopefully, by the end of the day, nothing is left over.

We ended up having wonton soup last night because neither of us was into a big meal.

So tonight it is meatloaf (already prepped and just needs to go in the oven), mashed sweet potato, mushroom gravy and still not sure of the veggie - whatever I find in the fridge I guess as it is cleanout day.

Well it is soup day! I have wing tips, a rotisserie chicken backbone and parsley stems from the freezer. Fresh leek tops, onion (skin on), carrot (skin on), celery, 2 chicken breasts, water and 32 oz. box of chicken stock simmering on the stove.

Today we're doing bone in, skin on chicken breasts in the Sous Vide for the first time. I've salted and bagged them with fresh thyme and lemon slices.
I've read that there's no better chicken breasts and I read this whole thing if you're interested.

SC brought home some beautiful asparagus and I'll also be baking some loaded spuds.

I took vac packed venison steaks and warmed them up in a sink of hot water, 120 degrees F, then DH grilled them for color on the outside. Served with mushrooms/onion/lemon/garlic/butter/salt. Mashed potatoes from the last of the potatoes we grew last year, reserving the growing parts to plant this next month. Corn that we pressure canned a few years ago on top of the potatoes, w/ a little butter S&P. Everyone was satisfied. The only thing we didn't grow or harvest (aside from s&p, lemon, butter) was the mushrooms. I tried to convince DH we ought to grow them this year but no, I'll try again next year.
