In order to create the below

@ 4.40pm

Boiled all my potatoes,
Marinated and tenderise the chicken chops,
cut up all my brocoli, celery, onions,
boil the soup base for soup,
chop up 3 cup of garlic,

Took mi a loong time.. as i need to peel the potato aft tat to mash.. I am crazy enuff to forget that i can use my mixer to Mash them... lucky at the last instance I rem... here u see hw useful is my big big mixer...

By time I fin the above, I need to puree my almost cook vegetables and create the 'cream'.

And adding on cream and such to the soup to thicken.. DARN.. 1 can of cream not enuff... I need like 2 more... SOS serene to get.. so scare she dunnow hich one (which she really dunno) llucky I know which shelf was the can at at the store.. phew...
