Sausage Kale Soup Recipe

Who is to decide a what a recipe is called? Wouldn’t be easier to set up a recipe governing body so we could know what really is in a Sausage kale soup?

Some recipes are like surprises from friends who think they know us and buy us things, they think we presumably like. Most of these gifts end up at the back of our garage/storage room or at the top of the garbage.

Even though we explain in detail what we would like to have, things can go badly awry and we can’t take what gets onto our plate.

We aren’t alone in this desperate situation it seems, otherwise stores wouldn’t offer gift cards or Amazon wouldn’t have a wish list, sharable with friends.

Or maybe we are those friends trying desperately to surprise someone who is so difficult to read and even harder to please. Every time we figure out some great idea, it turns out to be like our favorite cake made keto without following a recipe.

Should we just go with the flow?

It’s not like keto desserts are bad or can’t be made delicious but if our favorite cake doesn’t have the ingredients that makes it our favorite then it’s new version can’t climb to the same spot, let alone dethrone it.

Neither it is like we can not make anything without a recipe, as many of us perfectly capable of improvising delicious food under the most surprising circumstances, given that we know the ingredients, we are working with.

The problem is if we have no idea or even worse, we get the wrong idea. Reading people is as much as an art as cooking and if we don’t get the basics right, we can only hope for the best results but rarely achieve them.

Rule or not to rule?

Feelings and flavors only exist on their own when we are beginning our journey with them. When we spend some time on the road, all things start to mix up. We have to navigate the cavalcade thriving always for balance by not letting one thing strongly dominate over the whole experience.

Trying to figure out other people feelings or recipe is a notoriously difficult task but not impossible for those who are trained in such art forms. Luckily, reading human emotions doesn’t require a win at the genetic lottery as super tasters and can be learnt by a bit of practice.

As unbelievable as it may seem but our emotions are hardwired into our body. Every little dash of happiness, flare of anger or drip of sadness is visible from the outside too. It’s not hard to imagine that our face is an open book for those who can read the changes of the 43 muscles residing there.

Complementing that with our body movements, there is little that we can hide from our fellow human beings if they really want to pay attention to us.

Of course, if we want to read those signs, we have to learn them the same way we have learnt the 26 letters of the alphabet. Just imagine if we could achieve world domination with those 26 letters -or a little bit more for weird languages- as a human race what could we do mastering double of that.

To the infinite and beyond?

Even with our poor ability to recognize 5 flavors, we have created such a diversity that we are struggling to use our vocabulary to describe them.

The truth to be told, we could give all our dishes fancy names, but it seems that recipes are like language itself. It lives with us and changes with us the same way we change when we leave the land we have been raised and nurtured.

Once we take roots in the new world, we start to incorporate our surroundings into our new life, and we grow stems that bore fruits from the new land. This is why once recipes leave their old country, they still bear their heritage if only by name but change to fit into their new home.Sausage kale soup - SunCakeMom
