Tonight's dinner was not very good. It wasn't anyone's fault but my tried and true Vegetable Soup I'd made many times before did not turn out great like it usually does. The only thing I changed was using frozen bag of peas instead of a can of peas but I don't understand how that could have been the problem.
It tasted watery and the juices kept puddling to the center of the bowl. I don't know what the problem was. But at least my testing number was still very good. It was 125 so all in all a good meal for that.
I've been making this same soup for years and even though I wrote the recipe for it into my notebook it tasted "off". For one thing I had not written down that chili flakes red pepper, was even an ingredient and I know it was. So I started by putting a 1/2 tsp. of it in and rechecking it every half hour. So after an hour and a half it had a total of 1+1/2 tsp. of the red flakes. It did have the light peppery taste but it was just off. I hate that diabetes is working on my meory and I have to resort to reading a recipe to cook! And I especially hate it when I can't get a recipe right anymore especially one I've been making for over 30 years!
Does anyone else have this problem making meals anymore?
