I had a gift cert.($15) from Traders Joe's and finally got to go to one yesterday for the first time. My gosh, it was so crowded (it was 10:30 on a Sunday morning) you could hardly move through the place. I ended up buying some hand soap, moisturizing lotion, paper thin crackers and crumpets and some candy bars for the grand kids. I would love to go there some time (when it is not so crowded and really have a good look around.

Andy, thanks so much for the thread, can't wait to read them all. When we got to our sons house he showed me a bag of their frozen Garlic French Fries, he said they buy them all the time. I sure wish we had a Trader Joe's close to us.

I collect bones. Bones and skin and bodily fluids. Whenever I come across some, I bag them and freeze them.

The other day I noticed they were taking over both freezers so I leapt into action this morning. I gathered my 20-quart stockpot and cleaned all the bagged parts out of both freezers. The pot is on the burner with parts and water. The parts rise about 6 inches above the top of the pot. I'm hoping things will settle down a bit when they defrost so I can add aromatics.

I'm looking forward to a big load of delicious chicken stock at the end of the day.

I only started collecting bones and skeletons in the last year. Homemade stock is the best. I only do chix stock. Rarely do I have anything else with bones in it, well a ham bone, that goes in its own soup.

Milk. I keep looking at the carton of milk in the frig and it puzzles me.

Finally this morning, before coffee even, I figured it out.

The expiration date printed is February 30.

I'm doing soup today too. Its french onion here though. I made a pile of Bolas's onion goop and I'll do the beef stock today. I have some bones in the freezer that should make some lovely soup.

Thanks for the reminder about Boas's onion goop. I gotta make some of that.
