For the Benefit of Mister Kite....

there will be a show tonight! ~The Beatles

This post will be for your entertainment purposes only...ok, most if it will be anyways.
I was reading Kath's posts from the weekend and she whipped up a tasty looking avocado and navy been soup-you know what a sucker I am for both avocados and soup so it totally got me drooling....and then laughing. Why laughing you ask? Well, I'm so glad you brought it up. I was recalling the corn and avocado soup adventure that my then roomie, and Orlando Bestie, Jenna got into about a year or so ago when we still lived in our college apartment....oh and we had ghetto college appliances, like the blender. (see where I'm going yet?) Anyways, Jen is a avocado nut too (haha, see what I did there?) so one night I decided to try a new RR recipe: Chilled Corn and Avocado soup....well, our blender seriously sucked, and had a big crack in it, (yeah, it was one of those plastic-congrats you just opened a bank account deals) so I had the brilliant idea of using the hand mixer with the chunked up avocado and chicken stock in a pot. So, not my best idea ever. Next thing you know I covered in green goo and yelling for help to Jenna. She did her best to follow my hand around the pot using the lid as a screen (it was like a saber and shield really) but by the time we were done we had chunky green soup, goop in our hair (not to mention clothes) and I bet the new tenants are still finding specs of avocado across the kitchen. I know that I found green for MONTHS afterwards. But, it was good soup. And it makes a great story. I think I'll have to make it again now that I have a sweet blender!

In other news: well, there might be some big changes coming up in the world of Jess, but I'm going to have to leave you hanging on the cliff for that one since I don't want to spill beans that aren't 100% yet. But I'm excited for the possibilities.

Love to all,
~A list making Jess
