One of the essential backup plans for meals is my homemade chicken broth. I’ll freeze them in my breastmilk bags (I bought a ton of them back in Bangkok) and each time I need to cook something healthy for Z, I use this.
- 3 chickens (just the carcass would do)
- 2-3 onions
- 5-6 stalks of celery
- 2-3 carrots
- 1-2 Bay leaves
- 6-8 peppercorns
- 5 cups of water
I use a pressure cooker to cook for about 1 hour.
Cool and pack them into my breastmilk bags (I use Boots). Each batch I would have about 5-6 packs.
Each pack is sufficient for 1 meal for Zion.
Some meals include:
- Chicken macaroni soup
- Chicken porridge (just add the defrosted broth, 1 piece of chicken thigh, rice and some veg in the rice cooker)
- Chicken / pork noodles soup
- Chicken rice
- Wanton noodles soup
