Always save the bones

Everyone is a bit under the weather, so I took the bones from both the lamb chops and the smoked chicken and made a broth with leeks and carrots. After a couple of hours, strained, and with the addition of the trimmings from the ravioli, plus a few ravioli, as well as kidney beans, carrots, half a can of tomatoes, and the rest of the puréed vegetable soup, it became a perfect meal for tired, sniffly people of all ages. I couldn't resist having half a glass of the Orion with it, to see how it had changed overnight; it has opened up but still has a core of opaque tannins. I'll try the rest tomorrow and hope for more evolution.
