Went shopping for dinner.
Took one (broken) dvr box and one standard cable box to cable company (by car service.) Returned with two unbroken dvr cable boxes (got ride from someone else on line.) Installed new dvr box in bedroom and programmed in programs to record.
Made bean soup (saute onions, carrots and celery with garlic, oregano and thyme until soft. Add vegetable broth (on hand), two cans of white beans and a large can of whole tomatoes (squished). Salt and pepper. Let simmer.
Strained stock into containers for the freezer. Final count? 7.5 quarts of stock. Neart two gallons. SWEET.
Used handblender on still-vegetarian bean soup. Left it a bit chunky. Added about a cup of chicken stock plus spinach leftover from last night.
Currently eating remaining cup of stock (after salting and reheating.) YUM.
