This week I was able to put back in the cupboard for a change. It was stock week. Had prime rib bones from Christmas that went into the stock pot. Got 6 quarts from them. 3 quarts are now in the pantry plus made 2 quarts of beef barley soup and 2 quarts of vegetable beef soup. Both went to DD and her DH since they gave me the bones.
Wednesday night had company from Spain for dinner. Did a baked ham and yep you guested it the bone made it presence in the stock pot for Ham Stock. That made 6 quarts of stock. 4 for the pantry and 2 into the bean and bacon soup for this weekend. Have about 2 quarts of soup in the refrigerator.
I estimate it costs about $1.25 to make a pot of stock so a pretty good deal considering I couldn't buy one quart of stock for that price in the market.
Got a good deal on mushrooms on the managers sale this week also. 8 oz. packages of sliced mushrooms were $.99 so got 2 pounds and they immediately went into the dehydrator. All in all a good pantry week.
