Rhythm of Our Home :: In the Kitchen

"The ordinary acts we practice every day at home are of more importance to the soul
 than their simplicity might suggest." ~ Thomas Moore

.: a day for making stock :.

I like to start the week with a pot of stock. 

First we chop. Into the pot goes chopped carrots, celery, onions and garlic, a bit of meat bone, some peppercorns and bay leaves, then cover with water and wait. 

Little by little good smells slowly emerge and begin fill the kitchen. The good smells fill the house.

I love to start the week by making a pot of stock, so that I have broth ready for Soup Day and broth to use for a quick bowl of noodles and vegetables, as well as broth to slip into a curry or whatever else might benefit from a bit of broth during the week.

During the days of deep cold weather, an extra bonus from the stock pot, a cup of warm broth with carrots and ribbon egg noodles is divinely comforting and warming in so many ways.

Do you have a regular homemaking activity for Monday?

  1. I have some broth going today too :)

  2. We like to start the week by baking's a nice way to kick off the school week slowly and it makes the house smell wonderful.

  3. Making our own stocks, or bone broth, is something I've really been able to 'bed in' as a routine for us over the past year. Now it is a weekly thing, although I'm not quite organised enough to do it on the same day every week. That might be the next step. Tuesday is probably the day for me.
    There is nothing better than homemade broth, that is for sure.


I love to hear from you, do say hello when you stop by and leave a link to what is happening with you.
