I survived Foodservice today, but only because I snacked on this delicious Nature’s Path bar during class. I liked this one a whole lot more than the pumpkin one I had a few weeks ago. Makes me think that one was stale or something. This one was an ooey gooey rice crispy treat with raisins and oats.
I came home to find the kitchen a bit of a mess. Matt told me to just go in the other room and that it would be clean by the time I came back in. He’d been making chicken stock! He wrote a post about the process tonight on Brew + Bake.
Dinner tonight was awesome and of course involved the stock. And half a bag of lima beans we’ve had for a while.
- 1/2 bag dried lima beans (8 oz)
- 3 cups chicken stock
- 1 cup frozen corn
- 1 carrot, chopped
- 1 celery stalk, chopped
- 1 chicken breast + 1 chicken leg (thigh and drum) cut into bite sized pieces
- S+P to taste
- Soak lima beans overnight and all day in a pot of water. Drain.
- Combine beans and chicken stock and bring to a boil.
- Add veggies.
- Reduce heat to low.
- Meanwhile, sear chicken in a pan until brown.
- Add chicken to soup and simmer for as long as you like.
Makes about 4 bowls.
It was soooo buttery and rich!!! I absolutely love big, fat lima beans.
On the side I had some toasted hunks of GH Honey Wheat.
This meal was 100% satisfying. I realized as I soaked up the last drop that everything was made from scratch: the stock, the bread, the chicken (was from a whole chicken), the soup, the dried beans. Thanks to Matt for all the TLC that went into this dinner!

I am going to try to do a lab report tonight, but I am soooo tired already. I have never had jet lag this bad before! It’s odd because I had absolutely zero trouble going from West –> East, but coming home has been so hard. I wonder if the adrenaline from the trip just kept me going while I was there.
