So me, my better half and our daughter feel a bit wintery. Nothing uncommon, besides running nose and higher than usual temperature. And everyone knows that in this kind of situation you need two things. A purring cat and a industrial quantities of chicken soup. Well a bowl works just fine, but in my case I will want another one, and one more after that , and ... and thanks to @amusebouchebg I now can make the perfect chicken soup! Not exaggerating at all neither bragging about it, it is amazing! Soft kitty, warm kitty little ball of fur. Happy kitty sleepy kitty, purr purr purr.
By the way if at any point you are curious about the recipes, you can always ask me. I’ll be happy to share them.
Leave a comment if you feel like it. Any feedback is appreciated!
Kimchi & chive jeon and Chicken tomato soup
Was craving something warm while trapped indoors from the NorCal Camp fire smoke that has made its way to the Bay Area. I had leftover rotisserie chicken I had already shredded into big chunks and frozen, so I heated that up in a pot with some water, tomato pasta sauce, and frozen peas. Done.
부침개 Bu-cheem-gae or jeon is usually reserved for rainy days, but I wanted to use up my kimchi before it fermented too much. To my kimchi batter (kimchi, flour, water, egg) I added chives and green onions, then pan-fried it. This will be my dose of comfort food before the holidays!

Where are the party people, caterers and restaurants?
Its about that time of the weekend.
Treat yourself and your customers to the best locally bred fresh out of the farm chicken.
Kindly slide into our DM to place your orders.... don't be told.
There would have been a time in my past that seeing a chicken neck or—GASP!!!—a chicken foot would have made me cringe with disgust.
I surely ONLY get the pre-packaged chicken breast or thighs in the store...
And I remember cringing in horror when I pulled out a foot from a dish I got from an off-the-boat Jamaican restaurant in Toronto.
I remember ignorantly dismissing it as “gross but I guess it’s okay because it’s their culture to cook that way” and continued to enjoy the layers of spice-filled flavors packed into each bite.
It was delicious.
And I was an ignorant American.
Fast-forward—I am cooking with chicken feet and necks that we raised right here on our land.
Every bone and every gelatin-containing piece-part I froze to cook down and make my own chicken stock and bone broth.
Today I make my first batch with our birds.
How insane it was to not know how the already-prepared foods are made.
How out of touch we are with what we eat and trustingly put things in our bodies prepared and grown by strangers.
The more I want to return to basics and implement them in the chaos of this life of mine—the more alien I feel in seeing how trusting we are.
We only know logos.
Like they’re old friends and we are positive that they would NEVER serve us Three-Second Rule food... when we are chowing down on food touched and containing feces, bugs, unsanitary equipment, unwashed employee hands, sick and cancer-filled animals, cancer-causing chemicals and dyes... yeah.
I still participate in the above, because I am not a total cultist living in a commune and still go out to eat... but I just hope that we keep moving towards THIS.
That the veil of our outofcontrol food system that is being government sanctioned by board members of Monsanto stop already.
Considering Trump just placed another Monsanto crony in charge of our Fish and Wildlife office and they stopped funding research to look at the effects of pesticides on plants and wildlife—it’s going to be up to us to educate and model to our children.
I’m making my first batch of chicken stock from our own chickens. 😂
