Yesterday's soup stretch.
I added chili Arbol powder more paprika garlic powder onion powder more oregano a good dollop of fermented pepper juice one pound of ground chuck and a pile of gumbo file.
More water and two handfuls of rice.
The kettle is full again.
You could almost call it Creole.

Now that the spices have had time to incorporate rice swell and thicken it is something like gumbo or stew without okra.
The heat is just enough to tickle your tonsils without burning your mouth.
It is so thick you will be tempted to eat it with a fork.
But use a spoon you will want to get every drop.

United had boston butt pork roasts on for $0.98 a pound, fit 4 into my freezer and it's full again! Dang, I would like to buy a couple more at that price. Can make a lot of dishes with them, it's pretty versatile.

Pork is so cheap these days!
I read that the piggy industry is in a bad place right now with too many animals etc., good for us but bad for them.

That's a great price, imp. I love pork..a very tasty versatile meat. I bought half pig from a local farm here - field raised. Butchered and processed locally. Best ham we've ever eaten. I also got a quarter beef from a friend and used the leftovers from a cross rib roast to put in chili. SO good! I love living in an area where local grass fed meat is available and even affordable.

Soup last night included leftover chicken carcass cooked for awhile to produce a nice broth. Added greens leftover from Saturday's market - swiss chard and mild mustard, plus carrots, celery plus leaves, onions, garlic, lots of bouquet garni spices. Keep forgetting that I have a big basket full of harvested shallots I need to use. Added a cup of brown rice and simmered away. Served with a loaf of focaccia bread leftover from market. About as cheap a meal as I can prepare.

My doctor told me to drink 1 oz. of water per 2 pounds of body weight. Some argue that is how much water a body builder should drink. One way or other - I absolutely believe in drinking plenty of cool clear water.

It's a gallon a day if you weigh 256 pounds. I would think activity level, plus the temperature and humidity would have a lot to do with one's water requirements. I remember when training mma that I would go through two shirts, which got so wet with sweat they were like I had jumped in a pool. After that, I would slam a 32 oz gatorade in one swig.

Bottled water is one of the few diet luxuries I buy, because without it, I inevitably get dehydrated. I can't make myself drink enough tap water.

Food has a lot of water in it, so the intake of water based off the above equation could be misleading. Every time a bite into a big ole mater I'm squirted with the equivalent of 3 quarts of juice.

When I lived in So Cal, the tap water was just awful and ice cubes made from it even worse. So, I had a countertop filter thing to at least make it taste better. Quite happy now that our tap water in Oregon tastes wonderful and is cold right out of the tap.
