Frenzy

I went on a little cooking frenzy last night.

I went grocery shopping late in the afternoon, and when I got home it started.

I had bought a whole chicken, cause I wanted to try cutting it into its parts. That was pretty straightforward, so then I baked the two breasts. I had one for supper, and put the other away for leftovers.

Next I pan roasted some green beans I had in the fridge. Sprinkled with EVOO, chopped garlic and shallots.

After supper I wanted to try making pudding. Nothing fancy, it's the boxed Jello pudding that you heat on the stove. I hadn't made that since I was a kid. Later I will make the second half of that experiment: the "Instant" kind, to see what the diff is.

Sometime this weekend I plan to take the leftover chicken parts and try my hand at homemade chicken stock.
