I have never considered myself to be a domestic anything, but this weekend has taken the cake!
This past week I've been reading a couple of blogs from top to bottom (2 years worth), giving tips and telling woes of personal finances. This one blog tells what she stocks her shelves with in order to have healthy and less expensive meals. She frequently writes about making soup.
I have never been an expert at soup. In fact, I had invited a friend and his children over to lunch for some home-made soup. The little girl quite blatently (and loudly) said, "This is the WORST SOUP I have EVER TASTED!"... to which my face went multiple shades of scarlet (and it wasn't even my usual hot flash). Since then I have pretty much given up on all soup but Campbell's.
Well, on Friday night I searched allrecipes.com for a highly reviewed stock and spent 8 hours yesterday simmering it... I had at least thought after all those hours I could have an actual pot of soup to eat, but no... this was stock, so I needed to save it in ice cube trays to use for real soup later.
Later was today, and I tried it... except it tasted terrible.... well, not really terrible, it just didn't taste anything, so I ended up adding my beef bouillion into it in the end, some cut up steak and veggies and it was okay.... but my question is... What's up with that? If you spend all day making something, you should at least be able to use it that day and eat it..........
Any help, tips, ideas? Or should I just stick with being a Campbell's cook?
