Yeah. I did it.


Last night, the unbelievable happened. In my kitchen. At my stove.

I cooked! Soup! From scratch! With VEGETABLES! This may not seem particularly astounding to most of you, but it really is when you consider that 1) I just don't cook. I heat things. Preferably in the microwave, occasionally on the stove or in the oven. 2) I'm not a big soup eater. I'll have a can of chicken noodle a few times a year, but that's it. 3) From scratch? I'm not completely sure what that even means! and 4) I don't eat vegetables. EVER. Not any vegetables, not any time. Sounds unbelievable, I know, but just ask my mother. On very rare occasions I might choke down some corn-on-the-cob, but only if its smothered in butter and salt, that's absolutely it.

Given all those seemingly insurmountable odds, you might now understand why I'm still amazed that I made........Curry Cauliflower Soup!!!!!! From scratch! I MADE IT! Me! The most inept, unenthusiastic, down right hostile chef to ever be dragged, kicking and screaming, into a kitchen. And it is soooooooo yummy! Also made some buttery, toasty French bread with a little parm, not from scratch, but still yum dipped in my AMAZING soup! Woo hoo! Go me!

Good thing I made a huge batch, because I definitely won't be attempting it again any time soon. I didn't cut or burn myself, like I usually do when I actually try to cook something, but there was plenty of bungling and mistakes and I didn't enjoy it, and I worried the whole time that it wouldn't turn out. But I'm glad I gave it a try, the effort was totally worth it.

Congrats! Now let's see you bake some cookies. Yep, toss out the Oreos and bake your own chocolate chip cookies with chopped walnuts.
