But, since January is soup month, I thought I could try a green soup instead. I had a bunch of spinach and some asparagus. So I actually combined two recipes, this one and this one. I added a little too much stock, I think--since I used fresh spinach, it released a lot of liquid. But everything turned out tasting nicely. The problem was in the blending.
This might be a rookie mistake when making soup, but I've made lots of soup and it's never happened to me before. The blender kind of exploded. And I was even holding the lid down, with a towel. Something to do with the heat of the soup creating pressure...whatever. Demon soup! Picture green everywhere--walls, window, blinds, toaster, and all over yours truly. On my chest and arm. Oh well, it's not like I have two babies who spend almost the entire day being cuddled and nursed. OH WAIT.
It actually wasn't that bad. I had these gel ice packs specifically for treating pain related to breastfeeding, so I just popped one of those in my shirt and EJ helped me clean up the kitchen. In the end, it was a little more trouble than I had anticipated, but it tasted good.
