Two and a Half Hour Transformation: Chicken Carcass to Meal

homemade chicken soup

Lards and I went to Costco with our roommates to stock up on food and other essentials (i.e. toilet paper). Along with the many unnecessary items in our shopping cart, Lards and I ended up buying a delicious rotisserie chicken. And for the next few days, we ate EVERYTHING with rotisserie chicken- sandwiches, paninis, wraps, and salads. Finally, we officially ran out of tender, juicy rotisserie chicken meat. But instead of throwing out the chicken carcass, one of us (ME!) had a stroke of genius and decided to make chicken soup with the remains!

So Lards and I did a quick search for chicken soup recipes and gathered our ingredients: a few stalks of celery (stolen from roommate), two tiny packets of baby carrots (also stolen from roommate), a large onion (probably our roommate's), and other seasoning essentials.

After two and a half hours of simmering away, our apartment was filled with the sweet aroma of homemade chicken soup and Lards and I were chowing down on good old-fashion comfort food- and it was delicious.

You may have noticed that a few of our ingredients were stolen from our roommate... so I feel that it is appropriate to say thanks for allowing us to mooch!! :) You're the best, Suraj!

The Beginning of the End...of our Skinniness

bacon wrapped chicken over rice
Guess what guys!  This was the first dish that Shelley and I made together and it basically led to the creation of BOMBdotCOM!  So Shelley wanted to make a rice casserole, which is a fairly easy dinner dish to make so we decided to 1-up this dish by making bacon-wrapped chicken on top of it. Honestly though, bacon makes everything better. In fact, bacon makes the world go 'round! 

This dish wasn't completely unhealthy though! See the broccoli in the dish?! Mmmmm healthy.

So you may have noticed that there's a missing part of our casserole....well that was all Shelley's fault...okay okay actually it was my fault. I just couldn't resist! But can you blame me?! 

Hope you'll continue joining us on our delicious food adventures! 

HUGS! -Lardy
