Quick Chicken and Corn soup

Tear flesh off bbq chook sitting forgotten in back of fridge. Make tiger sounds "like a tiger!"

Have glass of wine.

Half fill large saucepan with water, add 2 big chicken stock cubes, diced chook, BIG heaped spoons of both ginger and garlic (don't pussyfoot around, make them big)

Add fresh corn shaved off the cob, shake chilli powder over pot, add Tabasco, look hesitant.

At this point it is important to adapt recipe to suit your own needs, so if married with kids, yell at them mindlessly "Come inside! Go outside! Do your homework! Empty the bins"

If you are single, mutter things about your mother.

If you want to make this soup for the next day, add 1/2 cup pearl barley.

Bring to rapid boil. Keep tasting and adjusting chilli, Tabasco sauce to taste. Add, taste.

Toss in a good shake of soy sauce, and one more for luck.

Add fresh ground black pepper, add spagetti broken up.

Boil/simmer for another 10 mins.

Make wimpering slurping sounds and say "How good is this?" a lot.

It's not supposed to be too hot Gary, just giving a slight tingle to the back of the throat, yum.

I don't know which sounds better? your highly amusing narrative about soup preparation or the soup itself :)
