So I had a bag of split peas and a new hand blender, and was excited to make Curried Split Pea Soup by Alton Brown. Well I made it, and it was fun to use the blender. It didn't look great, and definitely thought it needed some kind of garnish.
I was a little hesitant to eat it and kept making all kinds of disclaimers to Brianna that she didn't need to eat it, and I would try it first. Much to my surprise, it actually tasted pretty good. It was actually rather delicious.
However, the leftovers looked absolutely appalling, like nasty green sludge in tupperware. It sat in our fridge for at least a week and nobody ever touched it again.
When I dumped it out into the sink, it scarily retained the shape of the tupperware!
