This morning, I was able to contribute a really nice trail mix to this morning's MovNat meetup group, because I HAVE a ton of almonds and other nuts, and some dried fruits for occasional snacking in favor of candy, and the very fine coconut flakes. People gobbled it up, but plenty to bring home.
Right now, I am savoring some Egg Drop Soup ( paleodietlifestyle.com/e
) that I whipped up in just mere MINUTES with what I had stocked in my life.
From the organic 6 lb chicken that I made in a crockpot last month as one of my first paleo meals (spice-rubbed chicken from Everyday Paleo) was then used to make a stock that I put up in containers in the freezer. Definitely, definitely, if you do that recipe, do yourself a favor and take the whole content and turn it around into a stock to freeze:
Today, fighting a cold, I wished I had a broth READY. I'm making more beef bone broth. I googled for more recipe ideas and simply tripped over the egg drop soup recipe. My goodness! I had everything! Silly me--I'd forgotten about my awesome chicken stock!
- The stock--which is so tasty and rich--it really is a broth. Chicken broth, no less.
- A BUNCH of green onions that I need to get used....
- the spices
- eggs coming out of my freaking ears...
That recipe is so quick, when you simply have the things you have from paleo cooking: spices, broths from chickens and cattle bones, fresh onions, usually.
What a great way to use up the last part of a bunch of green onions. I will always keep this in mind.
I love being able to just EAT what I have, and feel nourished and full of joy. Cannot wait to show Savannah the egg drop soup. I'm going to have her make it and watch her face when the beaten eggs hit the boiling broth...
