A really, really freakin' huge potato
Thirteen stalks of celery
Six large carrots
Two small onions
Lots of salt and pepper, a bay leaf, thyme, Italian seasoning.
Chop everything, throw it all in a huge pot, add enough water to fill it, bring to a boil, then simmer for a long-ass time, as long as you can stand to wait.
I love "cooking"!
