After a big day at school or work, one would think that I would be to tired to do anything else but go to bed. However, when I get home I know that a beautiful treasure chest full of gold is waiting for me in the kitchen. That chest is my beautiful stainless steel refrigerator and the gold inside of it… you guessed it! It’s tons of different condiments that will soon be anything my culinary imagination can make up.
My favourite thing to make is soup. It doesn’t get anymore relaxing then that. When you’re at a spa in that big luxurious hot bath with all of the naturel oils blending together, well, making soup is exactly that. All of your worries are put aside and you can feel the warmth of that sumptious celery cream soup fill your nostrils. Without a doubt, cutting the vegetables and then blending them is like taking all of those test results or what ever else you can think of and chopping them into a million little pieces until it creates that beautiful creamy texture. Then comes the cooking and mixing of all the problems you have. At first, it boils and you can see the cream and puréed vegetables come together and disolve that big day away. Then, it cools down and let’s that beautiful aroma take over your entire house. In the end, when you actually get to taste it, it glides down your throat with such delicate comfort that everything else doesn’t matter anymore.
In other words, I don’t need to go to a spa to get a nice relaxing massage. I have a wonderful little island waiting for me to discover it’s treasures and let everything else melt away in that big bowl of soup.
