She excitedly told me she had tried out the soup recipe from Outside, At Home. I peered into the pink bowl, confused.
"Borscht?" I asked.
"No, the one with the turnips."
After a pause, she added, "…only without the turnips."
She added again, "Oh, and I had some beets, so I added them too."
That explained the bright pink colour.
And another detail, "… Oh, and I didn't use your spices, I used other spices… Japanese spices." She's hilarious. By then I was definitely giggling, but this was no different than usual - I giggle non-stop
She offered a taste and it was delicious. Glad to hear we inspire such cooking creativity. That's the way it's done.
