I forget to tell you that last night I made DH the broccoli cheese soup recipe that is in the book that came with my Vita mix. It was fantastic! I put the container on my scale and measure the ingredients right into it. The only clean up was the container (which I put a little soap and water in and ran it on the blender base) and the mug he drank it in. Made a sandwich with leftover pulled pork, small plate to the dishwasher. Easy fast day meal that pretty much kept me out of the kitchen.
"Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass. It is about learning to dance in the rain."
oh wow.. I have GOT to get better sleep.. for a minute I read your DH made the broccoli soup for you. I was like huh?? I thought he just made beer Kinda cool about the easy cleanup in the kitchen though!
He made dinner for me, once. Pot roast with veggies and a salad. That was after we had been dating for a very short period of time. At the time the only thing I ever cooked was pasta (macaroni) with butter and parm from the green can. By the time we were dating for 3 months we ate out 14 meals a week and I drank coffee for breakfast, he ate out for breakfast as well! Did that until I graduated 2 years later. Then I started to learn to cook.
Is it the texture he objects to or what? I ask because I do not like soup. That is, I do not like the crap 90% of the world tries to tell me is soup and can be found in cans in grocery stores. However, I love a well made soup (as long as it does not have the word 'tomato' in the title.) Yet, for the longest time I didn't make soup, order soup, or learn how to cook soup because "I don't like soup."
so long story short...would he eat a good soup or is he anti-soup all together?
btw...as a side not I dislike the word 'stoup' with an ungodly passion (no offense intended if anyone used it here and I missed it). A chunky soup is still soup. A liquidy stew is still stew (though crappy) do not try to be clever and combine the two. I get way too bent out of shape about these little things...oh well, stressing over stupid sh*t is primal right? >.>
He does not like soup at all -- not my homemade soup and certainly not canned soup. It's funny to me, though, because he likes his food with a lot of sauce/liquid. Guess it's a matter of the way they eat in Nepal.
