I must have had too many Cupcakes, Snowballs, and Yodels so my sugar-intoxicated brain forgot to ask this.

My slow cooker has been simmering for a couple of hours since this morning 2.5 lbs. of cut beef marrow bones with a few dried bay leaves. I bought them on impulse at a bargain price of $0.99/lb., but now that they are simmering, I'm not sure what to do with them.

What are your frugal ideas for dinner, with beef bones (beef broth)?

I still have about 5 hours before dinner though I can also freeze the stock (and bones, if necessary) for a future quick meal. I have an idea of a mostly vegetable idea, or no added meat item other than the bones and stock.
