Corrine's Hodge Podge Soup with Bone Broth

  A collection of miscellaneous things 
The Base
Whenever we have chicken I save the bones/scraps in a large ziploc bag along with a bit celery,carrot, half onion, slice of lemon peel and then freeze. When I need to make chicken broth I toss the lot into a pot with a bit salt and pepper and cover with plenty water and boil gently for several hours. Unlike this recipe I don't use vinegar, but check it out for directions for the novice or the bone broth elites ;)

HodgePodge Soup
Medium pan of chicken broth
Two chopped baby bok choy
Half cup cooked chicken pieces
 cup sliced mushrooms
teaspoon sesame oil
Half cup noodles

Fry mushrooms in sesame oil
Throw everything into pot of broth and boil until noodles are done.
Sprinkle with chopped celery and serve

That's it, simple and very tasty.

She Cuts with Scissors

And it's been fun trying to figure out where to cut because my current creative experiment with craft felt is like a jigsaw puzzle. As with a lot of my work one creative adventure leads to  new interpretations.
 It started with a painted stone portrait, which led to photographing it on a magazine fashion page collage, which led to putting the photo through a fun filter, which then led to the current incarnation with felt cut pieces.
