Fast forward thru a fun day of games with the kids, washing mountains of dishes, marathon podcasts of my two favorite crazy moms Heather & Kate on Naptime Radio, and chopping veggies for tomato soup.
No real recipe but I had just seen the Neelys (Food Network Southern comfort couple) make an awesome tomato soup and the hubby wanted some. So long story short... Get to the part where you either blend with immersion blender or in a regular blender. So into the blender my boiling steaming soup went. Lid on and hit purée. Bam!!! Boiling hot liquid shoots all over the kitchen and me. What the Fudge?! You would think common sense should of hit me! Duh mommy moment! Steam needs to escape somewhere and the pressure built up would take the path of least resistant. But no, I thought "must not of had the lid on right" and yea that hot liquid was freaking hot on my shirt! So I hit the button again. Repeat explosion! Bam! okay that's it! I google "hot soup in blender" and find a YouTube clip demonstrating starting the blender dry and adding liquid slowly. Okay genius give it a try. Nope same result. Ahh! By now my kitchen floor is a slippery mess, the walls look like someone vomited soup, and every corner has tomato in it and I want to shove my arm in the freezer!
So I google again and an "ah ha" moment! Take the little circle out of the lid and cover with a towel. "ohhh." Why didn't I think of that?
This photo so doesn't do the mess any justice! Holy cow I'll be scrubbing forever.
So moral to the story... Use your head. lol! By the way I loved the soup and hubby apparently wasn't crazy about it, go figure.
