In the previous photo, we have neatly stacked (and labeled) plastic containers of homemade duck stock. We roasted a duck in our Romertopf clay baker, and then made stock from the broth. It's a delicious substitute for chicken stock in the soups we've been making recently, and goes well in making mashed potatoes.Alemany Farmer's Market. They freeze beautifully and make a quick and easy microwaveable meal on evenings where we're too tired to cook. In the foreground are individual beef bourguignon and chicken pot pies from Bristol Farms, another quick and easy weeknight meal. Bottom photo: portions of key lime juice, Meyer lemon juice, and lime juice, and assorted artisinal bacon. Sun Fat Seafood, frozen abalone, two large portions of crab stock, several large fillets of halibut that some friends caught in Alaska and brought back for us, and a loaf of artichoke bread. In the bottom drawer: portions of boneless chicken breasts, some escargot, and various assorted meat portions.
