My friend Katie and I were talking, when she told me she forgot to get an ingredient for a recipe she planned to make for dinner tonight, chicken broth. I personally hate going to the store for that 1 ingredient, because it almost never fails, ya' end up coming out with half the weekly special because 'they were on sale just this week'.
So we put our heads together, and tried to think of things she may have now, that could make do. Bouillon? nope. Chicken noodle soup? YES! We've decided that if she mixes the soup in a bow, adds the called-for amount of water and then drains out the noodles, she will be left with a sort-of chicken broth! No one will ever be able to tell the difference, and she can stay in her jammies!
I used to think recipes would well.. make my kitchen combust if you got one ingredient or direction wrong, but boy have I learned I was wrong! The kitchen is all about improvising.. and who knows, you may just like your way better!
