    My poor wife, who as you can imagine is losing her mind from being married to me, was making chicken soup tonight, and she put in pieces from the houseplants. She claims she was “thinning them”, but I didn’t see how that explained putting them in the soup.

    She didn’t even check them for bugs!!!

    Did she use a lightbox to check for bugs?

    Didn’t realize you had a wife.

    It was ok. Tasted just the same by the time I added 4 cups of mini mandel to about 2 oz of soup. My usual ratio.

    rebyidd23 – why ask how old I am? I was told that’s not a polite question to ask of anyone.

    Nor is it polite to make fun of people for being more married than others.

    Anyhow, why would you need to check houseplants for bugs?

    Were they fruit filled, like hamantashen? Were there fruit flies?

    Put some chicken soup in the houseplants.

    For a plant, eating chicken is not as bad as being a vegetarian, but still wrong.

    Didn’t the store that sold it check for bugs?

    Are you suggesting we rely on the store’s checking???

    Not if you were going to put them in the soup, but afterward as long as you strain the soup and check it for bugs.

    If popa_bar_abba’s wife grew things like parsley as her houseplants, then it wouldn’t be so weird. And if the plant spent its entire life cycle indoors, then perhaps it didn’t need checking?
