Time Falls Back
This Sunday - November 6th, 2016
Don't forget to change all of your clocks.
And while I think of it don't forget to change your smoke alarm batteries, check your Heat tape, furnaces, etc. Be safe during the Fall and Winter Season!
It is such a beautiful sight to watch the leaves change colors and fall to the ground. Although the one who does yard work, doesn't like it as much. HEHEHE! But still even if I was the one who did it, I would not mind at all. The cooling temperatures prepares every creature and plant for the winter temps that are FAST approaching.
Many fine folks go south for the winter to stay in a warmer area, but not me. Golden Acres Mobile Home Community in House Springs, by the way is a wonderful place to live. We get all the different season which is nice to have the exposure too. To me, the cooler temperatures mean great winter foods and a nice blanket to watch a great movie on my favorite channel. For me that ALSO, means more baking and lots more soups AND Watching the Snow fall (hopefully).
I love good ol' fashion homemade soups from scratch. That means also Grilled Cheese sandwich(made with Garlic butter bread toasted with Your favorite Cheese melted on it)
I love the Mayo Clinic Website as they offer many options for making homemade soup including how to make broth.
Check it out!
I have copied and pasted some of their ideas from their website below for your convenience but be sure to visit their website too.
Fall ushers in cooler days and reminds me it's time to get my flu shot — and to stock my freezer with home-cooked broths that are ready to convert to cold-fighting soups.
In the spirit of the season, here are a few soup terms and fun facts.
Stock: Stock is the result of cooking vegetables, such as carrots, celery and onions (this trio is called "mirepoix" in French cooking), aromatics, and animal bones (which may or may not be roasted and may have meat still attached) in water. The mixture is usually simmered 4 to 6 hours to remove the collagen from the connective tissues and bones. It's then strained. When chilled, stock should have the texture of gelatin. Stock is often used as a base for sauces — or it may be made into a broth by adding water.
Broth: Broth is also made with vegetables, aromatics (herbs such as bay leaf, parsley and thyme) and meat (which may or may not include bones). However, broth is cooked for a shorter period of time, usually 45 minutes to 2 hours, before it's strained and seasoned.
