Day 39

Omelet and Bacon
I added some green onion to the eggs this morning. I think I need to add a few more. I should really see if the chives have come up in the garden, that would be good too!

Chicken, Roasted Sweet Potatoes,
Steamed Red Cabbage, and Applesauce
The chicken was leftover from Sunday; I heated it up in a small skillet in some clarified butter. When hot, I removed the chicken and added chicken bone broth with some parsley, sage, and thyme. I let it reduce to half, then poured it over the chicken. It tasted like Thanksgiving turkey leftovers! The cabbage was an experiment. I had a leek in the fridge, so I chopped it up and threw it in the steamer with the cabbage. It tasted really good, to have that extra bit of flavor in there!

Supper: Sorry, no picture....
Meatball Noodle Soup from http://www.healthstartsinthekitchen.com/2014/01/20/meatball-noodle-soup/
This is a most unusual soup. Just meatballs, a carrot, four mushrooms and a little chopped onion. Serve it over the 'noodles', which is actually spaghetti squash. Well, I like lots of veggies in my soup so I used five carrots and a few more mushrooms. I used beef bone broth for half the liquid. Daughter could not stand the smell of the broth, and she could not eat the soup. Husband and I ate it, but I have to say that the beef bone broth is not the most enticing. It is rather greasy to me, even though I did remove the fat when I made it up a couple of weeks ago. I would not make this soup again. There are leftovers, and I will add potatoes and celery and forget the squash.

Exercise: Walked 3 miles.
