Busy in the Kitchen Thursday

Haven't had pancakes for many months. Today was the day and lunch was the time. Thank goodness for Aunt Jemima - so easy - so good - no fail! (Should I keep the box when it is empty since her smiling face has been removed from the newer boxes now? (That was a mistake in my view!!)  Two large ones for lunch and one more to save. Of course I have real butter and maple syrup for toppings. 

This morning I took a 5lb. bag of frozen white meat chicken strips from the freezer and broke it down into 8 small baggies. It will make these be easier to access when I want a few. I dumped the entire bag into my handy-dandy blue tub and did the sorting and bagging and popped all back into the freezer. When I was doing this, the power went off and the stand-by generator kicked in! Love that generator! The left-over small pieces were then put into my stove pot, topped off with water and simmered all afternoon, along with some pepper, garlic, onion, and celery powder. Later on I added a blurp (my word) of Gravy Master and a few teaspoons of corn starch dissolved in cold water to the mix and simmered it some more. I will use some for supper. My taste test was really successful. The next step of course, is to bottle up and store some in the freezer. I think it will go good with mashed potatoes! What a feeling of accomplishment!
After the rain, a doe and fawn came for a drink from the lake.

  1. Aunt Jemima is gone. And so is Uncle Ben!!!!! We could sell our packages, on line, and make money!!!!!

    Such wanton stupidity, of this "Woke" crapppppppp!

    You have a generator! Super. And you must keep it well taken care of, if it came on. -smile-

    Grrrreat food prep!!!! Wonnnnnderful!!!


  2. I agree. They should have left Aunt Jimima alone. She represented a good pancake

  3. Beautiful photo of mama & baby!!

    All sound delish. I think I'd have dumplings, but potatoes are good too.

    Ya, this politically correctness has gone way too far. As with Land o' Lakes butter and more.
