I’m having a day. It is a Tuesday after all, and those are notoriously bad for me. I’d like to think it’s the distance from the weekend that makes any slightly bad thing seem epically so, but I can’t be sure.
Normally, I avoid my blog when I’m feeling like this. Most food bloggers are chipper and sunny. Of course, most food bloggers also post pumpkin recipes out the wazoo when the fall hits, so I guess I shouldn’t necessarily hold myself up to that standard.
While I’m not implying my life is horrible (in fact I have a lot of things to be thankful for), some days it’s not all unicorns and rainbows (universal indicators of awesome).
So, I found it ironic that on a day like this, the only pictures I have ready for the blog are for this major fail of a soup.
After the success of the Spicy Thai Coconut Soup, in part thanks to the citrusy finish, I thought I should give some other quick soups a try. This Spinach, Pasta and Pea soup had good reviews. Actually, looking back it has great reviews. Besides leaving out the chickpeas, I followed this to the letter, and we were left with warm lemony broth. It was so bad it didn’t even warrant a witty moniker from Hubster. The poor man took two bites and declared he couldn’t eat it. I didn’t make it much further. (That’s what post-dinner ice cream is for, right?)
Anyone else having “one of those days” and looking forward to post-dinner
ice cream wine?
