I should have seen it coming…I was totally due for a kitchen disaster. Everything was going so well!
I really haven’t had one since Easter when I tried to make soup with the hambone. Who would have thought that once again, soup would be my demise? I always thought it was one of the easier food categories.
Earlier this week, I saw a recipe for Mulligatawny stew on PinkofPerfection. For once, I had everything in my kitchen to make it and after a late night of wine and playing Wii with friends we had over, warm, yummy rice and this stew sounded perfect.
And perfect it was, until I put it in the blender. I blend all the time. Smoothies, margaritas, but never, never has the lid BLOWN OFF THE TOP like it did when I have a boiling hot soup in it!
All over me. All over the kitchen counter. All across our cabinets.
So what do I do? I think, oh shit, I must not have had the lid on tight and do it AGAIN. And the lid blows off AGAIN.
I would be lying if I said I didn’t try it a third time. Apparently I’m a glutton for punishment. I don’t know what the hell happened. Maybe the hot soup made a vaccum? Maybe our lid no longer holds a seal?
Either way, I decided to still eat the soup, just unpureed, which was fine but I don’t recommend it. I’m pretty sure my shirt is ruined and the poor car, who was never a fan of the blender in the first place, may never venture into the kitchen again.
