I haven't cooked much recently. For the last couple of months really. Some combination of not being organised and it seeming like too much effort has led to me picking up something simple from the supermarket as I walk home after work more often that not. But yesterday morning over breakfast I finally got my act together, flicking through my recipe folder and picking out one I hadn't tried before - Chicken and Sweetcorn Soup. So you see, it was with the best of intentions that I turned on the blender to give the hot soup a little blitz just before serving.
Unfortunately the lid of the blender wasn't on quite as tightly as it should of been.
On the kettle.
In the kettle.
Covering me. (Let me remind you - hot soup!)
There was chicken and sweetcorn soup everywhere. Corn kernals were slowing making their way down the wall, for crying out loud!
At this point I just decided to be glad that I hadn't decided to make borscht.
