Cursed soup

I’m feeling a bit under the weather and took the time to turn some leftover chicken and broccoli into a big soothing pot of soup. I put the bones in water on a separate little pot to make some broth, forgot I left in on high, and burned them to smithereens. Then when I tried to finish the soup off with a few grinds of pepper, the top of the pepper mill fell off and half a bottle of peppercorns spilled into the soup (and all over the floor)! I skimmed off as many as I could see, but there were still many peppercorns, so I strained the whole thing and started separating the many peppercorns out from the solids one at a time with a spoon. I worked on it long enough to get one cup’s worth of soup. The good news: it was delicious. Definitely on the peppery side, but delicious.

Thanks for your views and comments -- always much appreciated.
Love it -

Not only a lovely cup of soup but a great photo to boot. Poor you - hope you are feeling better.

It obviously wasn't your day, but if tasted good at the end, that's all that matters.
