The online HQ of Petrea Burchard and Boz Books
Chicken soup? Is one of you sick? Hope there is some for that sweet Boz.
My mum's little puppy dog of quite some years ago used to eat a good percentage of her body weight in roast chicken at one sitting. Looks like Boz is in for a nice evening.
Not sick, Dina. We just like home cooking.
I'm sure Chef Boz's role is chief taster too?!He is clearly keeping a very close eye on proceedings.
What a sweet face... love his chocolate tones!.
What a great helper!
Oh Bless! Like Dina, my immediate reaction was that someone was ill. Happy, happy that that isn't case. Enjoy the soup :).
Are we the only people who eat chicken soup when we're healthy? Homemade chicken broth is the logical thing to do with a chicken once you've had a meal from it. Boz agrees, and he likes an occasional giblet.Actually, he likes constant giblets, but --well, no. He's a good kitchen helper while we're cutting and peeling, but when flames are on we ask him to wait in the dining room.Waiting is hard.
I was hoping Boz would make an appearance today. I ran into John the other day as he was chauffeuring the master from his Altadena play date. Boz couldn't even be bothered to raise his head and say hello.
@Petrea: I always end up saving the poaching liquid whenever I poach chicken ... makes a great broth for future soups.
That's one handsome chef!Hoorah for home-made soups.
Hiker, I've come to understand that I must balance each post about my book with a post about my dog. I'm quite aware of who wins the Pupularity contest around here.KBF, exactly.Dive, he's not much of a cook but he's a good eater.
So glad you started to comment, PETA. I was worried John wasn't telling us something. Actually, chicken soup has been proven to boost the immune system, according to an expert on KPCC talking about things to take for flu. And it has to be CHICKEN soup, not beef or pork or veggies. Not sure I believe this but I guess there's no harm trying it out.pS all that beef broth the Victorians gave to their sick relatives cin the novels wouldn't have worked.
Ha ha ha, I am a victim of autocorrect. Sorry about that, Petrea.
Awww, look at the depth, the neeeed in those soulful dark eyes. Boz has such good humans, ready to make such wonderful dishes for his meals. He must be happy to share them with you, in return for your hard work earning $$ and hunting for dog food.
Bellis, I must be quite immune. We made a lot of soup.Speedway, Boz eats well and he's really good at it. I wouldn't say he's good at sharing, but he is kind enough to let us stay here.
Aw, he makes the perfect sous chef! I bet he can tell with just one sniff whether you need a bit more of this and that:)
Fact: PETA did not approve this pot of soup.
I've been making chicken soup all day too!!! Kelly is not the assistant that Boz is...she does however, like to lie in the middle of the kitchen so I trip over her now and then...
Oh, such an endearing gaze from such a sweet boy....We also eat chicken soup when we're not ill. With the very cold temps we've been having here lately, we've been having soup often.
I could eat soup everyday, and I would be happy.
Such a good boy! I'm standing in the kitchen about to eat a cookie with Tommy looking up at me with the same expectant pose. Sorry, Tommy. No cookies for you.
True, we could fix pretty much anything, and Boz would be just as earnest. "I LOVE lettuce!"
Lovely photo of Boz! Me too, Boz, love chicken soup.
Sonia, both you and Boz have good taste.
Chicken soup with "soup almonds," chicken soup with noodles, or rice, or matza balls, or even plain. I could have it every day. Mine usually starts with a package of wings. Or sometimes turkey necks. My theory is that for it to be medicinal (the proverbial Jewish penicillin), the soup must be made for you and given to you with love.
I like that, Dina. John and I must be about immune to illness by now.
