Totally Unrelated Genuine Conversation

Posted by Sunday on Dec 7, 2008 at 2:32 pm in Daily Space

me:  I made a potato soup, but I hate it.  I’m throwing it out.

Hal: You are?  That doesn’t seem like you.

me:  It doesn’t taste like anything and I’ve gone back and added so much crap to it, like vermouth and truffle salt and herbs.  It still doesn’t taste like anything.  Sometimes you have to know when to walk away.

Hal:  Like the Kenny Rogers song about cooking.

me:  Uh.

Hal:  “The Gambler.”

me:  Right, but, you’re trying to tell me that’s about cooking?

Hal:  Yes.

me:  So the lyric, “know when to fold ‘em” -

Hal:  Is about eggs, yes.

    It’s a given, I’m not the best cook in the world, nor the worst. IMFAO, simplicity is the golden key to the City of Good Soup. More than three ingredients (not counting common spices)and you’re taunting disaster.
    Think of mixing colors, if you will. To get that perfect shade you subtly mix two, maybe three primary colors (…ingredients, get it class?)to achieve the desired perfection. Start adding more colors (… now pay attention class!)and very quickly you have Olive Drab. Try to ‘save’ this Army Bivouac Green soup by adding yet more colors (need I say ‘ingredients’?) … Bubonic Black Death fills your pot with FAIL!
    I agree with Hal, Kenny was singing about cooking.

    It’s probably too late for this now, but next time you wreck a soup, stick it in the freezer and forget about it until you see the container a month or three later, then thaw it and see if you like it again. It worked with this fucked-up spaghetti sauce I made and wrote off… much better after a couple months in the freezer. Oh, and add some bacon.
