Green Soup

I don't know what possessed me, but I went to my favorite web site Food Gawker (brilliant, gorgeous food porn, which leads you to blogs and recipes-- go now) and decided to make green soup. Green soup is basically a bunch of vegetables ground up and cooked in water with a bunch of other delicious stuff in it.

I bought a big thing o' spinach
And then I cut up two gigantic things of broccoli (what are those called? Stalks? It's stalks, right?) along with celery, parsley, and... some other stuff. I forgot.
None of those things are tasty.

But then I added THESE mofos.
OH YEAHH. Garlic, lemon, garlic flavored olive oil, normal olive oil, onions, and ginger.

By the way, cutting raw ginger root is a painful experience. It burns your eyes.

Aaaaand then you put it all together and simmer it for 15 minutes.

Then, I put it in a food blender, but filled it to the top, which you are not supposed to do.

I didn't take a photo, but it looked something like this
(Instead of burns, pretend it's green shit)


And go forth to the end result.

It's hard to make green soup look appetizing.

I hate dieting.
But this soup is actually palatable. Especially with carbs, like these Market Street crackers. YAY CARBS

Here is my dinner. How friggin' low calorie is this? (As compared to my typical dinner, which is always either pizza, cake, or pizza... and cake.)
Green soup, crackers, diet soda. URRRGGHHHHHHH

Will it be delicious?

(I'm lying. It's not so great.)

And now for no reason whatsoever, here's a photo of me in giant blue glasses.

Also, West Nile is killing lots of people in Texas, so be sure to wear bug spray, okay?
