Ever assemble a piece of flat-packed furniture? Did you find yourself surrounded by unlabeled pieces of particle board, a half opened bag of hardware, and no instructions? Without those instructions your bookcase may end up a pile of crushed particle board, 16 camlocks, and a dowel in your eye.
Cooking, to me, is like building furniture. Without a recipe, I could potentially end up with a case of salmonella and third degree burns on my hands. So when my sick hubby asked me to make soup tonight, I froze in the kitchen like a deer in headlights.
Problem 1– I haven’t gone shopping so there’s not much to work with.
Problems 2– This isn’t a soup I have made before so I can’t wing it and work around missing ingredients
Problem 3– I don’t have a recipe.
Don’t have the recipe? Just ask, no big deal, right? I did. I did not receive the recipe card I hoped and dreamed for. I did manage to make a tasty pot of soup despite this fact.
