Today, it is raining again here in West Houston and we are still watching those damn dams. What does a suburban House Husband do without a Suburban? We cook, chat and clean closets! LOL That gay agenda is really something.
I do have a special girl in my life, her name is Miss Lady.
A Broth for a Lady
Miss Lady is our Great Pyrenees that we inherited upon the passing of a friend. She, like our other family members, are all rescues and we love them dearly. She is getting up in years and has something that is endemic to this breed of dog, hip dysplasia. I did my research and avoided costly vet bills by changing her diet. By the way, she is about 16 plus years old and still trucking along like a teenager.
Her diet now consists of broths that I have adapted from the Far East that provide the joint lubrication to interact with the chondroitin (Available through Amazon) supplements we give her. To make this broth, I go to the meat markets for bones, knuckle bones, chicken thighs, beef hooves and such that would make the broth for various noodle soup dishes in Japan and China. Yes Dears! Those excellent broths have very humble beginnings!
Here is my recipe
3 to 5 pounds of bones with meat
1 gallon of water to begin
Celery tops, Carrot tops with carrots (any type of extra from regular cooking)
Set to boil then simmer on the stove, adding water as needed for about 24 hours.
What I end up with I split between her bowl and freeze the rest in Ice Trays as it is a great addition to any dish that requires bullion in it.
We love our kids and hope to keep them healthy and happy!
What else does a Houston House Husband do on a rainy day? We write blogs!
Have a good day!
