Veal Stock Revisited

This week has been an interesting one for dinners. I was away this past weekend and did not cook. I have been paying the price every night. We had Chinese Sunday with leftovers on Monday. Tuesday we were suppose to have Lentil Soup which I had taken out of the freezer. Chris called when he got home and asked where the soup was because what he found in the fridge was a container marked - Veal Stock from Osso Bucco, 12/25/13. Excellent. I was sure I saw Lentil Soup. Anyway, we ended up having Baked Macaroni on Tuesday, not a bad substitute. But still there was the veal stock to deal with. This morning I heated up the stock and added some frozen veggies, there was already onions and carrots in the stock. I boiled some noodles. Tossed them in the pot and added some fresh spinach I had in the fridge. The house smelled so good at 7 AM! And what a fantastic dinner it was. It was nice to know that none of the Veal Osso Bucco went to waste.

Dear Lucia. I have been thinking of you and hope all is well.
Life has been a bit hectic! But why should I be any different than the rest of the world!
Well, I always feel blessed that as long as I may be able to handle things it is o.k..
I pray that you have a beautiful and very blessed Easter weekend.

We all need a little break sometimes, the soup still sounds delish to me ;)

Wishing you and your family a joyous Easter!
