I have started "cooking" more. The other day I "made" condensed soup from a can. That is, I followed the directions and added a can of water to the soup before heating it up. I then realized that adding this can of water does not magically make more soup. It just makes more liquid
, below which sits the stuff I actually want, which in this case was noodles and chicken. I ended up draining the soup to get the noodles and chicken.
I know, I'm weird.
But, contrast this to the other kind of soup I "make," which starts with prepackaged dry ingredients. There, adding water does
, in fact, result in an increase in soup, because you had no
soup before, only a package of dried things.
You guys just wait until I start cooking raw meat, then it will really get fun.
