My brain isn't working at full speed today. I was making chicken stock, and Ju Ju started jumping at me and mewing while I was chopping the vegetables for it. And for some reason, I chastised her with the words:

"Stop it, Ju Ju! Stop it or I'll put a leek on your head!"

The freakiest thing is, it worked.

Also, the soup is bubbling away on the stove, and it smells really, really good. This is my first ever attempt at soup making, and it's bizarre how satisfying it is - it feels like you're making really basic, sturdy food.

Ooooh, I'm going to have to try that on the Phooka.

Do you think it would work with shallot or lemon as well?

Hee, I think any fruit or vegetable would do...

Hee! I sometimes say silly things like that to our two.

And, I really like making soup and stews and the like - there's something satisfying about the smell around the house of fresh basic food around the house. Bread too.

I must be tired. I started reading about you making soup and talking to your cat. Then I went on to read about the soap you have bubbling away on the stove.
Tired or Blind ?!

I made soup tonight too! But I don't have a cat. I'm starting to think it would be quite nice to have a cat, but it might be too much responsibility for me.

I make soup when I'm angry. Chop the veggies up harshly, tell off the pots and pans, and generally stomp around until the soup begins to simmer and the smell calms me down.

And after expending all that energy, there's soup to relax with. It's all very...well, sad, really. :)
