Ok.. This story is a few weeks old, but better late than never, right?!?!?!
So, a dude on food network was cooking up some cauliflower soup and charlie and I both thought.. "Well, that looks good!" So, next trip to the store I picked up a head of cauliflower.
I get home, get to cooking... Oh yeah, it is going well... the directions said to let it simmer for 20 minutes, but I'm impatient so I just boiled it for 10. I kept an eye on it, stirred it often. Lookin' good! Then I need to transfer it to the blender... well, you should let it cool, but no, not me. I'll get it over there, no problemo! So, I transfer half the batch, blend, transfer to a bowl. Going good!! Then I transfer the second half.. well, this half is a little larger than half. Oh hell, I'll just filler up! I press the button on the blender and whamo! The lid comes up and steaming hot cauliflower soup sprays all over me! ha ha.. too funny. So, there I am, covered w/ soup and my hand is scalded! I did wipe most of it off of me prior to getting the camera out...
This time I'm gonna show the blender who is boss. So, I applied the appropriate amount of pressure onto the lid of the blender and finished my blending. I transferred it all back to pot, I ate and all is well!
