Rowan has a thing for soup. She likes to eat it, and she likes to make it. But if she’s making it, I generally don’t let her eat it. Here was tonight’s recipe, Green Salad Soup:
Colored water, blue, green, yellow, with a dash of red, but it’s predominately green
Crystallized ginger (wasn’t watching her for this one, Leif retrieved the rest of the bottle for me)
Grape tomatoes, cut in half (these were destined for the compost anyway, wrinkled but not moldy)
Grapes (same as above)
Onion shoots (my onions in the cupboard are trying to sprout)
The soup is also varies when she’s playing “Mama” or “Vampire Mama”. Tonight she was regular “Mama.” Often, the soup also has lotion in it, perhaps that is the connection to “Vampire Mama,” I’m not really sure. Apparently, it was so tasty we all had three bowls of the stuff.
