« Theo in a Handknit Sweater -- Potentially the Cutest Item I Have Ever Knit | Main | Madhu Knits and Cooks Returns -- Best Pumpkin Pie EVER »



Hooray -- Madhuri is cooking again!

(Though this quote -- 'Unfortunately, I think my current lifestyle is not only suboptimal for making ice cream (and really any sort of food) but also apparently for eating things I make.'-- brought quite the frown to my face.)

I can't wait to read the next post--perhaps on your South Asian cook-off with Jonathan!--but until then, I will leave you with Shakespeare's lessons on soup-making:

1ST WITCH: Round about the cauldron go.
In the poisoned entrails throw.
Toad, that under cold stone
Days and nights has thiry-one
Sweltered venom sleeping got
Boil thou first i' the charmèd pot.
ALL: Double, double toil and trouble,
Fire burn and caldron bubble.

2ND WITCH: Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the caldron boil and bake.
Eye of net and toe of frog,
Wool of bat and tongue of dog,
Adder's fork and blindworm's sting,
Lizard's leg and howlet's wing,
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Fire burn and caldron bubble.
ALL: Double, double toil and trouble,
Fire burn and caldron bubble.

3RD WITCH: Scale of dragon, tooth of wolf,
Witches' mummy, maw and gulf
of the ravined salt-sea shark,
Root of hemlock digged i' the dark,
Liver of blaspheming Jew,
Gall of goat and slips of yew
Slivered in the moon's eclipse,
Nose of Turk and Tatar's lips,
Finger of birth-strangled babe
Ditch-delivered by a drab,
Make the gruel thick and slab.
Add thereto a tiger's chaudron,
For the ingredients of our caldron.
ALL: Double, double toil and trouble,
Fire burn and caldron bubble.

2ND WITCH: Cool it with a baboon's blood,
Then the charm is firm and good.
