friends don't let friends . . .
. . . cook after midnight
i made the worst soup the other night.
i had had to work late and i knew i had to get up at the crack of dawn to go back to work the next morning and i knew i wouldn’t be getting home til very late, so i figured i’d start a pot of soup and have my wife transfer it to the crock pot the next day to finish simmering.
good plan, neh?
except that i started out making tortilla soup.
and the top came off the red pepper flakes (i normally use only a dash of these) and i got waaay too many in and was not able to fish them all out.
then halfway through adding the ingredients i had what must’ve been a highly explosive brain fart, because i started adding ingredients for my spinach vegetable soup, starting with (you guessed it) a big bag of frozen spinach.
the resulting soup was flat out disastrous
needless to say, this one won’t be going on my cooking blog
