And so this holiday season, that's nearly come to its end, has been a difficult one - for my stomach, that is. And that is why I sorely needed a break. So today, I decided to eat lightly.
These were my instructions: I want vegetables, just boiled with some salt, no add-ones, no meat, just veggies. Carrots - OK, peas - jummy, cauliflower - perfect! And a soup - just mix all the cooking waters and it will be great. And here's what I got:
Soup without anything inside it? Inadmissible! So I got a soup full of overcooked noodles, mushy and partly disintegrated.
Vegetables boiled with only some salt? Too plain, too boring. So the vegetables were boiled with added allspice.
Myself: "They are almost done, cold you please remove them from the stove in 2 minutes?"
... half an hour later ...
Mom: "Do you think that they are done? Should I remove them from the stove already?"
The peas were too soft, cauliflower molten.
Mom: "Well, if you insist, here are your boiled vegetables, but I really think you should eat something solid with it. Do you like the flavor? Hope you do because I just poured some grease over it and fried them a bit..."
