But look at this photo! Clearly, my visual memory is still flying a full capacity!
My point is: recently I purchased the bones of local, grass-fed cattle at .50 per pound? Yes! Please! Thank you!
Then, I came home, threw the bones into the freezer and went about my week.
Only a week or so later did I work-up the courage to make my second batch (ever) of bone stock.
For some reason, I found this a daunting task, like mopping. It's so silly, I know. I get caught-up in feeling like I accomplish "nothing" around our house. But I really do so much.
Disclaimer: I am NOT the house that not matter when you stop by, somehow the house is immaculately clean, a candle is burning, the throw pillows are actually on the sofa, etc. I'm talking about accomplishing nourishing hot meals, healthy snacks, breastfeeding every two or three hours (sometimes still for 30 minute intervals!!), washing dishes, keeping abreast (sometimes) on laundry, providing clean cloth diapers, reading stories to the kiddos, singing songs, outdoors play, etc.
AGAIN! I'm always going off on tangents. Ok, so I read over this article at Paleo Diet Lifestyle and then got to stockin' the next morning.
If you have a crock pot this is so feasible and easy. If you don't I'm sure it would be easy but you might have to stay home for a day. Or maybe you are brave and leave the stove top on, idk. Or maybe you even have (I'm gasping in awe...teenagers that you can leave home to watch the stove-top! How dreamy, from the land of babies!) Do what works!
In order to make stock with using perfectly awesome edible veggies, here is a very frugal tip: save the onion ends and skins, the carrot tops and bottoms, etc. when you chop veggies. Auntie Leila also says you can throw in cheese rind. This saves from throwing perfectly delicious veggies into the stock.
(Old post! Not all info (i.e. breastfeeding every 2-3 hours) doesn't apply anymore!)
