On Thursday I decided to be Lil Miss Happy Homemaker and whip up a giant pot of homemade vegetable soup.
Here are the ingredients:
Every canned vegetable you have in the house
Every bag of frozen vegetable in the freezer
Four Taters (Potatoes to you non-country folks)
Two cans stewed tomatoes
Two cans of water (I used the tomato can to measure)
A can of Tomato Sauce
Some pepper (cracked)
And a can of Corned Beef
Toss in pot and boil for a bit, then simmer and then let it go for hours.
I only had two problems by the end of the day.
One was that I threw my back out AGAIN - obviously because my warranty didn't cover extraneous things like COOKING DINNER and --
Two, this kid kept following me around:
Ever tried to peel potatoes with one hand while simultaneously trying to keep a cabinet from being flung into your shins with the other?
It's talent, I tell you, TALENT.
Wanna know HIS talent?
He will only poop in a clean diaper.
And - he can clear a room in thirty seconds flat soon thereafter.
In that way he takes after his father.
Who is so proud.
And he'll tell you himself - when he gets out of the potty.
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL YOU OUT THERE WHO CELEBRATE IT, HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO THOSE WHO DON'T AND HAPPY 25TH OF DECEMBER TO THOSE WHO ARE PERPETUALLY CONFUSED OR WHO DON'T LIKE GIFTS BECAUSE THEY WERE DROPPED ON THEIR HEADS, OR RAISED BY WILD GRINCHES OR --- I DON'T KNOW, ARE TEAM EDWARD OR SOMETHING.
