This morning I cut half of the Costco rotisserie chicken off the bone and portioned it out in 2 vacuum seal bags for the freezer. I can't eat a whole chicken within a few days by myself. That left the carcass that I couldn't bear to throw out, so chicken stock has been slowly simmering on the stovetop for a few hours. Celery, onions, peppercorns, parsley and thyme went into the bath - it smells so good when I go to check on it.

Now I'm fixin' to chop up a huge onion from the farmer's market a couple of weekends ago. The other one was even bigger. I'm going to have plenty of chopped onion in the freezer for a long time.

Good question, Taxy - I forgot what the scale said when he weighed it. Maybe a pound and a half....? I'm not good at guesstimating, though.

They're Candy Onions, very good - sweet and juicy, one of my faves.

The outside half inch or so of that onion would be great stuffed and baked!

Yum! I've seen pics of those, onion balls? Done on the grill or campfire.

What Are You Doing?

Sitting in front of our "ole' style motor court" room on the porch, watching a Summer Monson storm go by in Taos New Mexico.
BEAUTIFUL!

I just finished requesting a correction to the number of "points" earned on a shopping trip to a local grocery chain. Often it isn't worth the effort, but this is $17.10 worth of points that I can spend in store.

Good thing you're holding that onion Cheryl or we would have never believed how big it is!

Hey, about the Costco chicken, have you ever made this recipe from PPO? It's the best soup ever! Read the whole thread.
Quick and Easy Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe

It's the best ever soup! I only use a small portion of the meat from a Costco chicken as you know, they are huge.
