It's been 4 days. 4 DAYS since I've been able to cook. My hands are itching to hold a spoon. And although Thatboy keeps throwing spoons at me, its not quite the same thing. I'm still not able to be up and "at 'em" for long periods of times, so if I wanted to cook, I knew it would have to be something quick and easy...and done before I took medication ;-) So I made a cold soup. Cold=no fire or other hazard involved. Cold = the food processor does most of the work. And as nervous as Thatboy was about me handling knives in my current condition I didn't get hurt or hurt anyone AT ALL! So it was a very successful kitchen adventure.
1) Cut up half a cantalope. Or you could cut up a whole cantalope like I did and store half for the dog.
2) Repeat with half a honeydew. Ooohhhh how pretty they all look. (Ignore the med bag in the back.........)
3) Pour the cantalope into the food processor and puree until its smooth. Add 1/4 cup OJ to the pureed cantelope.
5) Stand back and look at how pretty your soupy-soups look. This is about when the medication kicked in because the last part got pretty messed up. At this point I tried to combine the soups like at CPK where you get two different soups in one bowl, seamlessly and invisibly divided in two. How cool would that look? Half orange-half green? So first I tried just pouring in the orange, tilting the bowl and pouring in the green:
I can't even lie and say it looked better in person. Cause it didn't. So then I tried pouring them both in at the same time:
