The Nicest -No- Common- Sense Thing Anyone Has Ever Done For Me..

When I was pregnant with my 1st child, I became ill with a terrible flu. Because I was pregnant there wasn't much for medication that I could take to help me feel better. My husband wanted to help and comfort me by making me some chicken noodle soup. He brought the bowl of soup to where I was laying on the couch in the dark watching television. I took 2 spoonfuls and I knew something was wrong. I told him to check the expiration on the soup can. He went and brought the can to me, turned on the light to show me that it wasn't expired and he doesn't know what is wrong with it. With the light now on, I examined the bowl of soup and realized what he did (or didn't do I should say). I asked him, "did you mix the soup with water?". He replied with an angry tone, "why would I do that, I'm not an idiot". To my reply, "well apparently you are..this is condensed soup!!" That was 8 years ago and I still don't let him make soup:)

Hello, ctobler, it's funny. He is out of careness to cook the soup, so I guess you still feel warm in the heart when you taste the condensed soup. Why not let him try? You know, 3 or 4 years ago, i put ginger into rice and cooked ( I chopped the ginger into little piece), that was my first cooking experience. I tried to best perform, therefore, I learned this peculiar way, but I promise I learned it somewhere and it was good for health. My parents laughed and they never allowed me to cook rice any more at home. Now as i'm working far away from home, I cook for myself, I can cook normal rice. So why not let your husband try again. He will do it well. **Enjoy life~~**

lol poor hubby and he was just tryng to be helpful. wow knowing that campbells usually dumps a ton of salt into their soups I can just imagine how awful that tasted without adding water to it. oh my. poor you and poor hubby trying to be good to you.I bet you and he laughed over that for years. Like my famous lemon meringue pie I made for our first meal as a newly married couple. It did turn out just heavenly. big thick meringue of top of delicous lemon pudding. He ate maybe a third of it and I asked him what was wrong with it? He smiled and said' nothing at all,its a perfect job but I never liked lemon meringue pie. so then I knew .lol.
