I'm thinking about trying to this new thing called: "What I learned today" posts. As you may have noticed, I've stopped trying to compose posts on what I know. It was short lived since I really don't know that much to begin with. But what I don't know, boy, I could go on forever.
So what I'm learning today: how to make bone broths. According to several sources (Dr. McBride Campbell, Weston A. Price etc), they are really healthy and used to be the backbone of many civilizations' diets. I have two broths going right now: a beef and pork mixture, and a chicken broth that will be used tonight for soup. Hoping it will help my kids get over the food poisoning I probably inflicted on them. Which brings me to my second "What I learned today"...
Don't leave chicken fat out for several hours and then cook something in it. My traditional eating one track mind got ahead of me and I thought it would be ok since it was mostly coconut oil anyway. NOT such a good idea. Lesson learned. Refrigerators are my friend even if they weren't used a hundred years ago.
That's it for now. I'll save the other hundred things I've learned today for another post. Like how to clean up multiple vomit spills in less than 1 minute with a baby on my hip.
