Monday, August 22nd 2011 - Book 100 - In an effort to eat the entire 15 pound bag of split peas I bought at a farmer's market in Idaho before I went to work for Bob, I produced book production scenes while making split pea soup, which surprisingly worked out pretty well. I sold The Split Pea Soup Challenge, Book II to Niki the Hot Springs Caretaker before she left. She said she was going to give it to her mom as a gift. This one, however, was just as delicious. In the absense of "real" onions and potatoes, I made use of the cans of dehydrated food Bob's caretaker from last summer left behind (after he quit after only a few weeks). When I finally finished this book production scene, I was very hungry. The soup wasn't perfect, but I didn't care...Yum!
My modest, but productive wilderness kitchen!
PROP COSTS: $10.75 + (STORYTIME WORKED: 2hrs 19min x OUR EXCHANGE RATE (based on fed minimum wage): $7.25) = $27.55
I had a lot of fun chatting with the couple who bought this book at the Northwest Book Festival 2014. I liked them because I couldn't imagine what they did for a living. My best guess was teachers, or maybe international spies with Kong-Fu training...
