Man in kitchen - Part 1


Photosource: Somewhere off the web... PS. My sources say, it did NOT look this good.

I have a friend that one evening decided to make soup for dinner. So after work he went to the supermarket with his girlfriend and bought the ingredients he needed:
Carrots, spinach and potatoes.
Although it was his first time making soup, he decided to make up the recipe as he went along; after all how hard could it be… it was only soup, supposedly the easiest dish to make… that is besides fried eggs…
He put in potatoes, the carrots, the spinach and even though his girlfriend told him there was too much water – he decided that it wasn’t enough and put in some more.
After some time later… not sure how much…
He decided it was time to open the lid off the pressure cooker and grind the contents into something smoother… and smooth it got… a little too smooth… or rather…
Watery.
Four potatoes and ten minutes later, it becomes a little thicker… and lumpy.
I guess it would've been edible after you added salt… but no amount of salt could hide the distinct flavour of raw potatoes…

Two fried eggs later… my friend and his girlfriend contemplated on easiest form of disposing of the toxic gunk and decided that something made out of veggies with no sugar or salt is good for dogs…

My friend says it was because the soup was hot but according to his girlfriend, the dog all but gagged… she constantly pulled out her tongue as if there was a fly on her nose she was desperately trying to shake off and looked at her owners with on of those expressions that all but said
“What the hell was that!”

Something tells me that he won't be making anymore soup anytime soon even though he swears he's better at chicken soup… from what I heard, his girlfriend doesn't mind though – she says that even though he sucks at making soup, with him she doesn't go hungry…

If this is part one, i'm not sure what to expect from the second part ;)

For men of for woman, some have "talent", others not!!!

Matos: Soup is one of those life challenges worth talking about my friend... I wish I had more time to write about the basics, luckily 2008 looks promising. I´ve missed sharing... Tight, cuddly, warm hugs!

DRC: I don´t know either what to expect for the second attempt but i´m optimistic! Will share when the moment comes!
As for talent, the chef isn´t professional but is talented - he just sucks at making soup... I think attempt nº2 will go better though.

Merchi: Nem mais amigo!!! Por isso mesmo é que valorizei este momento!
