I'm not moving very fast in all the get-up either, but it is keeping me warm and well covered. I just have to be careful when walking. Hubby's old carharrt is a bit long for me (oddly). I had a problem with steaming up my sunglasses, but that morning sun was piercing my eyeballs yesterday. I am thankful for it (sunshine), so no complaints. I wear Hubby's hat over the face mask in colder weather too.
Want to know how far one roasted chicken stretched for us?
Normally, one home raised, roasted chicken lasts about two days around here. However, with Son gone (and oldest Daughter gone more often), we have more leftovers.
Meal 1: Roasted Chicken, Potatoes and Carrots
Meal 2: Barbecue Chicken Sandwiches
Meal 3: Potato and Chicken Breakfast Hash
Meal 4: Chicken Noodle Soup
Meal 5: Mashed Potato and Carrot Breakfast Patties
The patties could be jazzed up with some peppers, jalapenos, banana peppers, onions....anything really. I simply mashed the cooked potatoes and carrots together and fried them in non-gmo oil. A little salt and pepper can make anything tasty too. Most of those meals listed included greens and other sides too.
After I wrote everything down that we made, I was quite surprised at how far one chicken had stretched. The recap was nice to see.
It makes you wonder if the pioneers ever got tired of beans and salt pork (and eggs)? I bet they didn't. I bet they were glad to get a meal.
We are to warm up today (25°F), so we'll be restocking our wood supply. It's a bit low today....only 67 days until spring.
