Yesterday, I was making myself some broccoli soup. My extremely complex recipe calls for the following:
One small saucepan with chicken broth. Add 1/2 head of broccoli (chopped up). Simmer until soft. Then blend up with an immersible blender. Add a little milk and maybe some spices. Eat.
But yesterday, I decided to get advanced.
I poured the broccoli/broth/milk mixture into the blender.
[You can see this coming, can't you?]
I remembered that you're supposed to open the little circular top liddy thing when blending hot ingredients, so I removed it.
DANG! I didn't cover up the little circular hole. BROCCOLI EVERYWHERE. And it was HOT. I thought to myself, "Dang. Shoulda seen that coming."
So, naturally, I put the little circle lid thing back on.
And then BLEND!
This time, the broccoli soup blew the whole TOP off the blender. More broccoli soup EVERYWHERE.
I did a mental facepalm, and wondered what to do next. The broccoli was still not really pureed. So I again removed the little circle thingy, but this time tossed a kitchen towel over the hole.
It blew the towel off, but this time the broccoli puree was contained to a degree.
At this point, I gave up. I poured what was left of the soup into a bowl and just pretended like none of it had ever happened.
