Chicken Lemon Rice Soup

I remember the first time my mom made Chicken Lemon Rice Soup, it was pretty good, but maybe it needed just a slight adjustment.

So the next time I made the soup I decided that maybe if I doubled the amount of lemon, it would be just a bit better.  So I doubled the lemon, took a brief walk and came home to the smell of Mr. Clean; yes, maybe I did add just a tad too much lemon.

This past Monday was a snow day, and once again I thought Chicken Lemon Rice Soup would be the perfect smell.  Once again I added a little more lemon, and added a little more lemon flavouring, and as I didn’t have plain rice, I made do with what I had in the cupboard.  Twenty minutes later, my home had the great smell of lemon, with a slight burned smell.  LOL, yep, the rice burned to the bottom of the pot.

Lesson learned: Don’t mess with the perfect recipe, don’t adjust what works.

And what does this have to do with mortgages?
