The recovery soup

All work and no fun makes Jane as charming as George Bush and less entertaining than The English Patient.

Having fun is essential to almost every human being (except Chuck Norris) and it's of extreme importance that we nurture it. While doing so your body might scream gimme more, but a day after that it might as well say it was too much.

Luckily there is a recovery soup that will give your body some quality shut up time. It is really easy to make and it takes about 20 minutes.

You'll need some:
  • potatoes,
  • leek,
  • flour,
  • oil,
  • salt
  • Vegeta and
  • water.

Peel the potatoes and chop them to smaller chunks, add some water, salt and a spoon of Vegeta and cook them for about 15 minutes.















Add chopped leek.



Take a spoon/two of flour and fry it on the heated up oil.




Add to the soup and cook for another 5 minutes. All that's left now is to sit down and enjoy your soup :)

You forgot the garlic again!

Did you know that the humble potato - a veritable staple of the diet of the entire western world, is a new world tuber?
That's right folks, no European laid eyes upon the 'apple of the earth' before good ole Cris Columbus! The Viking excursions to the new world did not discover the potato - it is native to the South and Central America.
Together with the potato, you can add:
Tomato
Cacao(Chocolate)
Coca(Cocaine)
Curare
Most beans
Tobacco
Cassaba tuber(A staple in Africa now)
Most hot peppers(Imagine Indian curries and Thai dishes without the 'heat'?)

I could go on, but in the interests of brevity and in maintaining a semblance of non-geek-dom, I will stop
