Last week my friend Ashley posted a blog challenge for me on my facebook wall: “recipe that only makes 3 dirty dishes (including cutlery), not all of us have dish washers ya know.” Ashley can be a little dramatic sometimes, so I wasn’t really sure what to think about this challenge. I mean, only 3 dirty dishes?! That’s crazy.
A couple of days passed before one of my co-workers who saw the post, Brenda, mentioned to me that she had a soup recipe that could possibly be tweaked so that it only used 3 items. Brenda told me she used to make this soup in college for her friends and they always called it the “best soup ever.” I’m always intrigued by recipes that claim to be the “best” so I just had to make it.
So, back to this three-dirty-dish challenge. If we’re going to chop anything, we will need a knife and cutting board, right? Then we’d most likely need a measuring cup for the liquids, and obviously we’d need a pot for the soup to go in AND a big spoon for stirring. Right there is five dishes and bam! Three-dirty-dish challenge failed.
