What not to do...

Someone asked me if I could post some pictures of the recipes I have on the blog, so today when I was making the Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Soup again, I decided to do just that.

Here are the peppers, ready to cut up.

And here they are again, seeded, cut in half, rubber with olive oil, and spread out on a piece of parchment paper on a cookie sheet. There is half a head of garlic inside the piece of tin foil.

Here are the peppers after 45 minutes in a 400 degree oven.

Here are the cooked, peeled peppers, tomatoes, and roasted garlic in a large pot. Just add 1 litre of chicken stock and simmer on low for about 30 minutes.

Here is the pot, sitting in the sink, after I forgot to turn down the stove to low, and left to go work on my report cards for awhile.

So sad.... I managed to salvage most of the red peppers but they smell so gross and smoky, I guess I'll have to throw them out. I am afraid my pot is ruined as well...

On a brighter not, the smoke alarm works well.... ;)
