No speakies

No speakies is happening in The Highrise. Apparently no cooking either. Order a pizza my dearest? No, not for me, bitch face. It seems we are on a diet.

I opened a tin of Cream of Chicken Soup. Instead of following the directions of adding half a can of water and half a can of full cream milk, I added half a can of water, quarter a can of skim milk and quarter a can of cream, plus some paprika. I have failed as a chef. I also accompanied the soup with some Vegemite smeared toast.  That was the nicest part.

It is a great start to my six weeks of holiday. Oh well, shite has happened in the past and will happen in the future.

I forecast three days until equilibrium is restored at The Highrise.

  1. HA HA know the feeling although it is usually me giving the silent treatment.
    Is it just me or doesn't cream of chicken taste differently to when we were growing up?

    1. Jackie, life is too short to waste by not speaking. I reckon cream of chicken tastes very different to my young years, even in my twenties.

  2. Hmmm! How much damage can you do to a can of chicken soup Andrew 😁😁 Come on you two, kiss and make up immediately!

    1. Grace, there is ritual that has to be followed, and kissing and making up is not part of it. I let you know about the soup when I have eaten the other half that I left out all night before putting it in the fridge this morning.

  3. Sigh. Too familiar, and I am rarely aware of my crime.
    I hope three days is an overestimate.

    1. EC, what triggers it does not matter so much, as it could have been anything. It is the mood the person is in. I don't know if that is perceptive but it is how it is here. Things might be ok by Thursday when we will go to Mother's together.

    1. Merle, it does, but it is being wasted.

    I suppose all those Sara Lee cheesecakes stored in the back of the freezer for emergencies (every other day) have been tossed out? Relax. If the worst come to the worst, sneak out from work for an extravagent lunch. He'll never know unless he's tracking your iPhone via satellite. He isn't, is he? - Ian

    1. Ian, alas no Sara Lee, but I have just remembered there is a gifted Christmas pudding somewhere. No, no tracking and I am on leave at the moment.

  6. I've never eaten cream of chicken alone as a soup. It has been the base of a few casseroles, but I'm not a fan of the taste and those recipes simply don't get made anymore.
    Hope the air between you two doesn't stay chilly for too long.

    1. River, as Jackie mentioned, it used to be delicious. Not so much now. Chilly is a good word. Icy is better.
