Hearty family soup

Our little inner circle of the family began in 1988. My husband and I had created a well seasoned and balanced stock.

We added a potato.

We added a carrot.

We added a pea.

We kept it simmering in various sized pots.

Our stock became a very tasty soup.

So…why must I keep adding salt?

I'll come back to this when I find out who I really am. I've been through some extremely rough patches but they have made me a better person. I blog if my brain is functioning first thing in the morning.

    Love that analogy. And wondering what salt you’re trying to add…

  2. Clever, April. šŸ™‚ And the soup may never be perfect, no matter what you add or try.

  3. Don’t beat yourself up too much April. Funny thing is, if we want to use analogy… I was in my forties before I truly enjoyed the true flavors of foods without having to flavor them/alter them. As parents I think we sometimes think we have to keep “helping” our carrots, peas and potatoes be better vegetables. When you’re right, vegetables are good all on their own. You seem to have learned that earlier than I did!!!!

    Maybe after so long, the soup just needs an extra kick to liven it up again.

    I think this was a clever way of describing your children, they are individuals and you must allow them to season their own lives… smiles!

      It’s tough to keep my mouth shut if I see potential for hurt, but they have to learn on their own. All I can do is make a safe place for them to feel comfortable enough to talk to me.

    Glynis took the words right out of my mouth. Try adding another seasoning instead. šŸ™‚
