Here's My Secret Recipe For A Cold and Miserable, Cloudy Day (Photo)
The secret is this: Look for the bright spot in a photo.
What were you expecting, me to give away some secret recipe of mine ?
The thought had crossed my mind. And, I know there are lots of folks who go online looking for recipes. I do it myself, sometimes and find some mouthwatering-looking stuff.
Guaranteed, if you type the words "Secret" and "Recipe" into a search engine, you'd find something like almost a frazillion recipes you never heard of before.
So, I was thinking about doing a series of my secret recipes, someday.
There's a few problems with that, though.
I never measure stuff.
I don't write anything down when I do it.
If I wanted to put tomatoes in the mix but, didn't have any
I substitute with anything red like, red peppers, a bottle of ketchup or anything else red I can find.
There's a habit I developed over the years of eating the food
and forgetting to take pictures of it.
The biggest problem of all would be, say if I posted my 1001 secret-ways-of-cooking-beans recipes
THEY WOULDN'T BE SECRETS, ANYMORE !
So, all I'm giving away for now is my secret recipe for a cold and miserable, cloudy day.
Then, I'm heading home to make my secret remedy-for-a-cold recipe.
It involves some chicken soup, a whole can of chicken (to make up for what they forgot to put in the soup), some garlic, onions, corn, celery, pepper, eggs, whole wheat bread and a pinch of alcohol. Maybe, some potato chips, too.
Just in case you haven't already guessed, my first, wicked cold of the year has arrived.
Culinary Institute people snooping around here, GIT !
Goina make my chicken soup and go back to bed.
The bright spot in that photo will be here for me tomorrow.
