I’ve got a nasty cold and was all set to make myself some homemade chicken soup. I am stuck in suburbia with no car, so I cleverly ordered in my groceries by delivery. It’s 6 pm, here, and they just got here so I was getting all set to prep when I realize that I never took my chicken out of the freezer. I have no microwave. I have it in a bowl of warm water now, but will I be okay sticking the suckers into my broth half frozen? Am I going to be able to cut it up into chunks?

Fuck.

Thanks for all of your helpful advice. I’ve got much more confidence dealing with meats that aren’t just fresh or I haven’t had the opportunity to thaw in the way I prefer (slowly, in the refrigerator). This is great because I suck plenty at planning! Normally I react by deciding I’ll just eat cheese, go without, or get take out. But I really had my heart set on soup today.

Anyway, the soup was delicious. It was chicken with leeks, fresh asparagus, peas, and then dill for garnish. Tasty and soothing. Here’s a crappy photo.

What did you eat today?
