Cooking

What was your funniest, or at least benign, kitchen mistake?

This post brought to you by the time I was making Campbell's Wonton soup and I accidentally read the number of servings as how many cans of water to add.

I told my dad what I'd done and he ridiculed me so hard that when he said he didn't care how many noodles he got, I purposefully filled his bowl to the brim and made sure there was only one wonton in it.

That was almost 40 years ago and he still uses it as an excuse not to eat my cooking.

stupid fashion trends

Inspired by watching several of my customers (and coworkers) struggle to use their hands because of excessively long stick on nails.

Do you have any "favorite" trends that should not be, present or historical?

values in conflict

When do you think it is acceptable to preserve land at the expense of someone who wants to use it now? That doesn't sound quite right for what I am trying to get at. Maybe, when are concerns for the past and/or future more important than concerns for the present?

I think of this often when I see a cemetery. If everyone has a stone, soon there will be nowhere left for the living to be. It's also of concern for ecological reasons, but what prompted my question was an article about death threats and vandalism being performed by "squatters" who claim the land as their own that is occupied by 5,000 year old ruins, "the oldest city in the Americas".

Who wants to talk about soup?

Why? Three reasons: January is U.S. National Soup Month, chill gray rain has been falling where I live, and I like soup, okay?

So. What’s a soup you’ve made? What’s your favorite soup? What’s a soup you grew up with? Is there a soup on your gastronomic bucket list? Recipes are not only welcome but encouraged!
