1 bouquet garni (usually thyme, bay, and/or parsley)
1 teaspoon corn starch

Brown bacon well, remove from pan and set aside

brown the meat well in bacon fat, remove from pan and set aside
add onions, carrots, and garlic to unclean pan, and brown
return meat and bacon to the pan

#audreycancook Another #leftover creation, skillet #appletart, a #smallbatch #audreycancook Skillet chicken #enchiladas a #smallbatch.  A great recipe for clearing out the fridge. On the blog soon. #audreycancook I've been working on a recipe for #icecream made without a machine. They're all over the web. I'm still not convinced, it's overly sweet and the texture is like frozen mousse. #audreycancook
