How about some No Me Gusta Soup?

I know this is a double post, and I know I haven't replied to other comments, but come on. This is totally worth it. I was at the Asian Market stocking up on some staples, and hit the dried fungus aisle. There were some ready-to-go soups that looked interesting. *Understatement.



I put that one back on the shelf. (Second to last ingredient.)

ETA I am disappointed in you guys. Not ONE cream of sum yun gi joke??

I had to walk around a bit waiting for people to leave so I could quit laughing and get a picture.

I'm equally disgusted and intrigued.

It's the sulfites grossing you out, huh? ;)

What's odd is that two ingredients are in English and the rest in Latin. "Radix" means root and "semen" means "seed", as you probably knew all along really. *g*

Apparently euryale seed is also called the foxnut, which is almost as funny.

Awe, let's just laugh at the Engrish, shall we?

I know. The Truth may be Out There, but it's boring. You like Engrish?

I wanna know who Euryales is. Who knows, maybe he's delicious? ;)

It's possible I've had that. For Chinese New Year, a friend at work made me a traditional dish meant for health and good luck. Honestly, I recognized almost none of the ingredients.

I was first squicked at cortex. I remembered something about Creutzfeld-Jakob and kuru, but then I realised I'm a dilletante.

Now I will be thinking of Mr. Smithers saying, "Sir, you know I think women and semen seamen don't mix!"

But semen is such a good source of protein and nutrients! ;)

....

Reminds me off that cookbook that dealt with what you could cook with semen... o.O I think you were the one that cracked my brain with that one.

I'm looking at my assorted instant soups and seeing none of these fun ingredients. MSG and Disodium 5' ribonucleotides just don't sound as intriguing as semen euryales. I feel gypped.

BTW, Unif's Instant Bean Vermicelli may have all the sodium you'll need in a day, but they're delicious, too. I love cellophane noodles.

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
