Day five of “One Bird Feeds Two Women for Five Days”. So we threw the old bird into a pot with lots of sliced fresh ginger, some celery hearts, kaffir lime leaves, an onion, a few black peppercorns, and about 6 cups of water.  It gently bubbled away on the back of the stove for a couple of hours. The resulting broth was the chicken’s swan song and what a beautiful aria it was. We strained it and added shiitake mushroom caps, silky tofu, fresh greens, rice noodles, cilantro, and a good squeeze of lime—are you thinking Stone Soup? Have a lovely weekend, dear friends.
