I'm being a good little witch today... I've got my cauldron stock pot going, and the smell of chicken stock is wonderful. I've not been able to get a ready made stock that met my discerning standards, so I'm making my own which I will freeze. Then we can have gravy and soup whenever it suits us. The time consuming part is making the stock, and it's something I love doing. I get the bonus of all the wonderful aromas while it just bubbles on the stove.
