We took sandwiches for the 2 youngest kids for lunch as they are always STARVING when they get out of the pool and I knew they wouldn't be able to wait until we got home. Taking some snacks or a lunch prevents the urgent clambering for a fast food meal and helps keep the budget in check.
Late this afternoon, I decided to make a hearty chicken stew for supper. I've been fighting a cold, and I had a few chicken carcasses in the freezer to use up, so today seemed the perfect day to do it. I popped the partially defrosted carcasses into my pressure cooker and then added water, a few onions, some seasoning and springs of herbs from the garden. Because they were not defrosted all the way, I cooked them a little longer than the usual hour and during that time, I prepped some veggies for the stew (garden carrots & peas, more onions and some corn from the pantry).
