#156 The excitement of using new gadgets that were Christmas gifts. I received a fabulous #soupmaker. In the short time I have had it, I have learned a few valuable lessons: firstly, you cannot necessarily make “anything” into a soup – you need to be mindful of quantities of each component to ensure that no one flavour or element dominates and; secondly when using leftovers, which is one of the Soup Makers USPs, avoid the “liquidised leftovers” effect…not sure how you avoid this but I suspect a recipe may help! In short, whether we are talking #christmasgifts or #giftsfromgod I suspect that the application of #commonsense is paramount to enabling the gift to be positive, effective and worthwhile!
