DUMB DUMB

This is a true incident that happened to me recently. A few months ago a friend gave me a delicious Chicken/Rice soup recipe, which I made and shared it with relatives and others.

A couple of weeks ago I decided to make another batch. Since my hand strength is limited by age, I prepared the bell pepper, the celery, carrots and onion for chopping for my son to "Slap Chop" them, which he did and stored them in a sealed container in the frige.

I cooked the chicken to shredded condition and put it away until I was ready to combine all ingredients for the completion.

The next day I poured the chicken broth and cream of chicken soup (undiluted) and a can of cream of asparagus and cooked it according to the directions adding the salt, pepper and other seasonings. While this was cooking I was developing a healthy appetite for a bowl of soup.

I took the lid off the saucepan and thought "this does not look right.... there is not enough of it and there is no color to it." I ate a bowl of it and it tasted good, but not what I remembered it should taste like.

When my son came in from work, I told him something was not right with the soup, but I could not figure out what I had done incorrectly. He opened the frige and pulled out the container full of chopped celery, bell pepper, onions and carrots that I failed to add to the mixture. (I know by now you have had a laugh).

I could not believe I did something so dumb. However, it was not a total loss; I just dumped the chopped veggies into the other mixture and cooked them another 25-30 minutes.

We just finished the last of it a few minutes ago and it was scrumptious.

Guess my age is catching up with me.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Too funny Connie, since my third mini stroke... WELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL haaaaaaaaaaaa. Short term memory mostly . I don't even think i can truly blame it on that. Ha !

My most recent forgetful "faux passe" was leaving a huge salad bowl mixed with many, many ingredients in the 'frige, and not even missing it until Christmas Dinner was long past and all the guests had left. Age is indeed a factor!

I hear you! I usually get to talking if we have company and leave out something like baking powder from muffins - oops.

Forgetfulness is a common element in all of us. I posted an article, "Missing Ingredient." My daughter wanted to do it all by herself, and did not find the shortening. Her cookies were so tough we could not eat them. At my age I forget things all the time.

It happens to us all.I'm always thankful when I hear of someone else's memory lapse or "senior moment". Thanks for sharing.
