Two people are seated at a dining room table. The table is covered with newspapers and mail, which the two are reading. The clock reads 6:00 p.m.
He: What do you think we should have for supper?
She: I don't know. I saw a soup recipe on a blog that looked good. Why don't you make that.
He: Do we have the ingredients?
She: I don't know. I'll go print out the recipe.
She leaves the room.
She comes back with the recipe and He goes into the kitchen and putters about.
He: We have all the ingredients so I guess I'll make the soup.
The table is set with two steaming bowls of beautiful, golden soup filled with corn, peppers, potatoes, beans, etc. He and She are seated at the table. He tastes the soup.
He: The soup is good.
She: Was it hard to make?
She tastes the soup.
She: OMG. The soup is amazing, fantastic. I can't believe how rich and fabulous the flavor is; like it's been cooking for hours. I really love it. I LOVE IT. We should keep the recipe handy and make it again soon. Mmmmmmmmmmmm. Wonderful.
He: Yeah. Good soup.
Sometimes you just know when you read a recipe that the result will taste delicious. That's how I felt when I saw Helen's recipe for Southwestern corn chowder on her blog, Vegtastic. Helen used fresh corn for her chowder, but we used frozen corn and it still came out great. I recommend you scoot over to Helen's blog and try the chowder. It's souper good!
So ends Vegan MoFo week 1, at least for me since I will only be blogging weekdays. Next week my theme will revolve around food and humor — as in, funny but not funny.
