How to Make HOT or COLD BEET SOUP (yep!occasionally I goof up)


  1. Pre-pare veggies.
    Sauté in a skillet with the olive oil.Add to a large pot with the can of broth.
    Heat gently.
  2. Prepare potatoes, apple and garlic.
    Add to the pot. Simmer till cooked. Add a little water if needed.
  3. Chop up the cooked beets in a food processor.
    Or a blender with water added..
  4. Add beets to pot.
    Simmer till cooked.
    Watch closely, add more broth, keep to a soup like liquid.
    Here is where the fun begins!
  5. I did say watch...closely!
    This is where I goofed!
    BIG TIME!!!!
    I had went down to do the laundry.
    Then decided to do a little ironing.
    Not sure how long I was...but this is what my kitchen looked like ...when I finally opened the kitchen door. The stove top!
    What a site to behold!!
    All I could do was laugh, !!
    Why cry?????
    Had to share this with you, there is a moral here ...somewhere. LOL
  6. The floor!
  7. Back of stove & exhaust fan!
  8. Here is the clincher...

    THE CEILING!!!!!
    My kitchen looks like some of those horror movies!...
    Blood all over!!
  9. I went and bought more beets...
    Here is soup picture. The way it should look.
