Too Hot For Stock

It is unbearably hot in Los Angeles this week. The only safe way to go out in the middle of the day is inside an air-conditioned car:


All summer long, I've been making stock out of the best of the season's food--corn on the cob, zucchini, summer squash, fresh tomatoes, BBQ'd chicken. I've rendered the scraps down:


Until they make a delightfully tasty stock:


I've strained the stock until it's clear and fat-free, poured it into zip-style bags, and popped them in the freezer:


In this horrible heat wave, nobody wants to eat a hearty soup. So the bags of stock pile up like unread books on a shelf:


I can't wait until the weather cools down enough to start making soup....


...and wearing Fall clothing, like this polka-dot sweater dress from Garnet Hill.
