Beware the Blender

25 10 2009

I was pureeing the stock for some chicken noodle soup this evening (we’re feeling sickly ’round here), and overfilled the blender.

Bad bit of judgement on my part, especially considering the recently boiling temperature.

You’d think after using a blender for 20 years, I’d know how to do it without injuring myself.

Ouch! How do you even keep an ice bag on that location to help it get better?? A mummy wrap around your head?

Ouchie! So so sorry about the blender attack. Dangerous creatures, they are.
Is it wrong to have things like that happen and think, “Well, it’ll make a great blog post…” Last weekend Doodle stuck gum up his nose and my first reaction was, “Quick! Where’s the camera and how can I document this to make it as funny as it is?”

I did that same thing when making applesauce but it hit my hand. 3rd degree burns and a pretty scar to prove it. If anyone asks how I got it, I’m going with knife fight.

So, dumb question, but what is “pureeing the stock” mean? Don’t you just use chicken broth like me? I have never gotten my blender out for soup, so I’m curious!

HBA–Watch out for those household implements. You never know when they’ll sneak up on you . . .

Dina–No blistering, thank goodness. The one on my wrist has a little blister, but here’s hoping they’ll disappear over time (because I am vain).

I cook the chicken in water with a couple of ribs of celery and a quartered onion. After it’s done cooking, I take out the chicken and puree the rest in order to trick my family into eating celery. So far, so good. I still end up adding bullion to the broth, though, probably because I use boneless, skinless chicken breasts instead of the whole chicken. Too bad in this particular instance I didn’t go for the chicken broth convenience.

Although you have a big burn on your neck, I can’t help admiring your hair. Very cute. And I’m glad you’re ok.

Beware, HBA, beware! My only advice to avoid injury is to stop cooking and cleaning right now!

Love,
La
