Maybe it's just my newbieness talking, but making a stock makes me constantly hungry! I'm making my first beef stock right now and all I can think about are swiss chard and filet mignon! I do have a couple frozen filets that I may have to bust out but arrrrg, no chard. I can't be eating like this everytime I make a stock! Do all of your get a hankering for food the whole time you are cooking a stock or is it just me?
The umami smell is driving me nuts!
