Refrigerator Soup

IMG_3040b

Someone posted a quote from a doctor on Facebook that says that we no longer eat real food, but food-like products.  That sort of stuck in my mind as we will be moving to our house in Pennsylvania for at least part-time in about a year and am a little anxious about where I will find good, unadulterated meats, fish, poultry and vegetables.  Sometimes ignorance can be bliss!

Scallions do grow back!

In the refrigerator today, you’ll love this Frugal, I had some left over veal broth from maultaschen, 1 cooked quail and 3 fried rabbit legs.  I put the quail and legs in the broth with onion, carrot, bay leaf, fresh thyme, salt and pepper, then boiled until the meat began to fall off the bone.  I removed the meat from the bone, then put it back into the pot with some potatoes.  After about 20 minutes, I added some green beans until they were just cooked.  Then I practiced the accordion.

    I love your soup and what an interesting quote, how exciting to be going back to pennsylvania for a while and also i can see how you are worried about food, maybe you can find some lovely farmers markets or local growers, we really are everywhere! Pity you will not be close by, i have plenty of good food here on the farm! c

  6. Brilliant! And the accordion? That is awesome 😉

    Your posts get quirkier and quirkier. All the better for that too.

  8. Beautiful shots and more excitement ahead for you! How does the scallion thing work…you can cut the tops again?

    • You cut off the tops and use them in cooking, then place the bottoms with roots in water. A green sprout appears in a day or two. This is the first time I’ve done it but they say you can cut the tops again.

  9. Love making things from what’s in the fridge and coming up with something new…and your stew looks very tasty! The tip on growing…or regrowing…scallion tops is a fun one that I’ll have to try.
