Souper Sex....

When I want to unwind after a hard day's doing nothing, there are two things I could kill for:


Soup
or
Sex...





Making soup is so therapeutic. But so is sex... I think...


The pressure cooker goes on the hob, a tablespoonful of olive oil... And then I add anything I find in the fridge. I have to careful because, just as with sex some ingredients do not marry well.

So, maybe an onion, a courgette, a red pepper, half a green cabbage, two sticks of celery, one leek, a tin of Borlotti beans, some garlic, some pasta... All these ingredients make a lovely soup in 45 minutes.

The beauty of soup is that you don't need someone else to make it. Although it is nice to share it once it is ready. A big chunk of fresh bread, some Parmesan cheese, a grind of black pepper and satisfaction is guaranteed.

Unlike some sex, such as one-night-stands, soup tastes even better the next day.

So at the moment, I am doing it at least every other day...
It brings tears to my eyes, though...

Them bloody Spanish onions!!!

Sometimes you can combine both and end up having Souper Sex...

there is something so sensual about cooking.... the anticipation... the colors and scents.... the skill of bringing things together just right...

and the explosion of flavor. ;)

When you mentioned pressure cooker and a tablespoonful of olive oil I wasn't sure if you were talking soup or sex...

haha well my experiences of cooking are far from sensual - no pleasure for anyone really when I cook. And well, the only soup I like is carrot and coriander - not quite in line with my tastes when it comes to sex.

But yes, we all need something to take our mind off the heartache. But I think I'll stick to skiing and shouting at the children. Safer all round!!

I love soup, and I wish I had a pressure cooker. I don'tknowHOW you find all these hilarious youtube videos, but keep up the good work! Is that for a real a commercial?

Hayden, there definitely is! A pinch of this, a pinch of that... Nothing needs to be overpowering... A good slow stir and yes, an explosion!

Andrea, both sex and soup allow you to let off steam and pressure. However, don't use scented massage oil in your soups.

Kitty, you can always spice it up, you know... A bit of fresh chilli here and there! hahahaha... Ouch!
I think by the time I come out of this, my name will be Souperman...

Oh, Daphnee, you are naughty! Next time use chocolate vermicelli instead! Another melting moment!

Lee, I only use a pressure cooker if I am in a hurry. In your neck of the woods, things will be naturally cool and slow...
They don't call me the King of You Tube for nothing! Yes, it is a real advert.

You should see that steamy Haagen Daz ice cream ad...or what you think is an ad for Haagen Daz...but it's an ad for Foster's Beer [I think it's Foster's.]

Is that a bit of Minestrone for Mister Johnny, Mary?


Gigi, yes I have seen that one. It was an Australian Forsters advert...
Very sexy!

I'm going to do that. I have had a pressure cooker since 1951 and it used to be all I could cook with. I'm on about my fourth now. Thanks!

Do what Pi? Soup or sex?
My mother got her first pressure cooker in 1967 and I thought it was a brand new invention! Your first one must be an antique now...
Keep it up, girl!

You'll make the onions cry if you glare at them like that!

I think you forgot something in your recipe. Shouldn't there be some liquid?

Caro, when my son was little he used to call that look "eagle eye" when I gave him the evil eye!

Daphnée, of course I had to forget the wine!
But yes, a few pints of water would come in handy for the soup. Cheers!

You can tell your publisherthat it's too late I have already written the Souper Sex Diet!
Simple. You make your soup,let it cook, have sex for 45 minutes, eat your soup. Done.
Repeat 7 days a week, change the ingredients and positions everyday of course, and voila!
Oops sorry gotta go..hey it's my editor...
thanks for the inspiration!

HE, ok you can take all the credit.
I really love your diet!
But I would skip one day and have a quickie salad instead of a 45 minute soup...

Depends on the individual, Merc!

CR, your chowder is making my mouth water.
We serve a smoked haddock and prawn risotto, up here on our little quayside! Very popular!

P. inc! I like both but, one at a time.
