Last night’s cut raw organic beetroot.
Its insides look so mysterious.
I was making beetroot soup (again). Simplifying it.
Cut up two large peeled/scrubbed organic beetroot and place in a large pan with two peeled onions, sliced. Cover with water and bring to the boil, then simmer with a lid for 30 minutes.
I blend with an electric hand blender, my favourite kitchen power tool.
While blending the beets (bought from Better Food), I travelled back in time:
– to fifteen years ago, and I was trying to be helpful in someone else’s kitchen.
I was in charge of the chocolate mousse.
I poured it into the mixer and pressed the button to mix.
Mayem. Chocolate mousse on every kitchen surface in spattering distance.
I had forgotten to out the lid on the mixer.
So now I practice conscious blending.
Schadenfreude means the pleasure you get from someone’s else’s pain.
I wonder if there is a word to describe the ouch you feel when you end up
causing even more ouch to the very person you are trying to help?
