In The Backwoods Kitchen: 12/27/11

I'm guessing your kitchen was just as busy as mine last week, with holiday preparations in full swing.  This week I am giving the kitchen a bit of a break.  Here's what we have going this week in the Backwoods Kitchen

  • Chopping and freezing celery.  I bought more than I needed for the holiday, so the extra will get chopped and thrown into the freezer for soups and broths.
  • Slicing and freezing carrots, also for soups and broths.  I prefer dehydrating both the celery and the carrots for this, but I'm still looking for a new dehydrator.
  • Putting up the Christmas ham and turkey leftovers.  Just like I did after Thanksgiving, I made extra stuffing and will cook the turkey carcass for broth, to make gravy for the stuffing meals.  It's nice to have a few easy meals in the freezer again!

I don't have a meal plan for this week yet!  With the last minute shopping and wrapping and Christmas dinner I just haven't had the chance.  We've been living on leftovers.  I will work on one though.  I probably won't go shopping for much this week, though.  We'll need potatoes and milk, but that should be about it.


  1. These are great ideas. I'm going to turn my extras into a soup and probably freeze a portion.
