Hey ro/ck/stars, happy December! I'll be uploading a different cookbook every day this month until Christmas. :)
Almost all of the books in this year's Calendar are available in both PDF and ePUB. If possible, I really recommend that you download the ePUB version as the PDF has been converted from the original ePUB and may be formatted irregularly as a result. You can download a free ePUB reader from Adobe or install a plug-in for your browser to view the files.

I fucking hate soup. It's runny, bland, watery shit. You might think "Wow, this is nice" after the first spoonful but after the 50th spoonful, you know you're thinking "Oh fuck, when will it end?!" reaching for bread and crackers to dress it up. What kind of fucking respectable food is ever dressed up with bland ass crackers and bread? Shit-disgusting food, that's what kind.
Soup is food for the toothless, poor and old. FUCK SOUP!
>look at it! Disgusting!

From the guy that brought you demonbread on /tg/ ( http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/20154353/ ) comes another tale of cookery. I figure at least one person will get a kick out of it.
Earlier today, I visited my grandmother's house and she gave me, among a few other things, a bag of popcorn. A charity for senior had given it to her the previous day, but she had no use for a bag of popcorn that had expired six years ago and decided instead to pass it on to me.
Just a short while ago, I decided I was in the mood for popcorn. Sure, it's six years expired, but I figured that it'd just be a little stale. As I was putting the bag into the microwave, I noticed the number to call for comments/questions and was tempted for a second to ask if it's cool to eat 6-year expired popcorn. I regret not calling. The bag also said to stand by the microwave and listen to the popping as you wait for the popcorn to warm up. "Fuck that," I decided, and went to go continue watching the Simpsons.
When I returned after four minutes, smoke was coming from the microwave. The whole kitchen had a sort of white haze to it. Thankfully, the fire alarm didn't go off - so I opened the nearby window and ran back to my room to put a rainjacket over my computer just in case.

I'm making this,
It's simmering now with the lid on, I didn't put celery in because I think celery tastes nasty, and the other person eating it with me hates celery too.
I read the comments and some said that they found that there was way too little liquid in it when they ate it and would recommend adding double the amont stated, so I used 750ml instead of just 500.
I didn't weigh the meat, I just used as much as I bought which is around the right amount, it cost £8:60 per kilo and I bought £4 worth in the packet it was in. Just when it was in the pan it didn't feel like it'd be enough for four people.
Think it'll be ok? I just hope it tastes ok and I have enough meat and not too stock in it.
