Easy Homemade Vegetable Broth from Scraps
It’s easy to make Homemade Vegetable Broth from scraps. You can build a nice flavorful batch of broth by simply collecting veggie peels, ends, and trimmings. To get started, all you need is a large zipper top bag and a little space in your freezer. Well, you also need to live in a home where you cook with or use fresh veggies.
Beef Bourguignon. Boeuf Bourguignon. Beef Burgundy. I think we grew up with this dish. No, not the first two. My Mom made beef burgundy often. The cuts of meat may have started out a bit tough requiring extra cooking love, but the end result was melt in your mouth wonderful. This year’s Christmas Eve Prime Rib was as good as any we’ve had in the past.
New England Clam Chowder
As kids growing up, when we went out to a restaurant, what we ordered was routine (thank goodness I outgrew that phase). Even though Mom had it memorized and could have easily ordered for us, from as early as I can remember she insisted we order our own meal (and take our elbows off the table). The server would take our drink order first, mine was always Ginger Ale. Then they’d come back and take our meal order, mine was always a Grilled Cheese Sandwich and a cup of Clam Chowder. Always. When you grow up in New England, it’s not a matter of whether Clam Chowder is the ‘soup of the day’….it will always be on the menu.
