Menu Plan Monday

Check out for more “Menu Plan Monday” ideas.

I have gotten all 6 chickens cut up. Cut up I have individual bags of 12 chicken legs, thighs, wings and breast. I cleaned and skinned them as well. I cut while my daughter skinned and cleaned. I also keep the gizzards and necks that come inside of the chicken for stuffing. I will post my stuffing recipe before Thanksgiving. It’s not actually my recipe I got it from my husband’s best friends father.

I am making chicken stock with the backs/spines of the chicken and it smells yummy in here right now. I covered the spines in a pot of water with garlic salt, season salt, regular salt and Adobo. I will simmer them until they are fully cooked. Then I will skim off the foamy stuff from the top of the water and discard the bones. I will let it cool and then pour the liquid into ice trays. After it’s frozen I will put the cubes in a Ziploc bag in the freezer. Viola…homemade chicken stock.

Tonight we are eating Chilli mac that I made yesterday. I fried 4 lbs. of ground turkey which I used 2 lbs. for Chilli Mac and the other 2lbs. went into the freezer. Later this week I will thaw and add black beans to it for Enchiladas on Wednesday.

    I swear, you are SO organized! And your homemade broth….mmmMMM!
    It’s the best, isn’t it? I just made some myself, & it’s all tucked safely in the freezer. I just feel better knowing I have some kind of meat stock in my deep-freeze. All part of a well stocked pantry. (o:
