I can actually see the bottom of our basement chest freezer! Yippee! The pantry is a little sparse, but I could keep going a while longer. Where did all this pasta come from?

I made a LARGE amount of chicken stock yesterday. I had previously roasted two chickens and then froze the carcasses until I was ready to use. I also had in the freezer some chicken innards I froze for this purpose, as well as a bag of the liquid left over from one of the chickens (I crockpotted it), so I know it's really rich. Anyway, I thawed everything out and then made stock. Right now it's in the fridge and I haven't yet pulled all the bones and floppy celery, etc. out. Normally, I would pick through all that and save the meat to add back for soup. However, since any meat left has been roasted, then frozen, then thawed, then boiled and simmered for a day, I'm thinking it's pretty devoid of nutrients at this point. I'm inclined to just throw it all out, especially since I won't be making soup any time soon. This broth is going in the freezer and I'll use it for whatever.
What do you think? Keep the meat, or not?
