The moment you realize that the "magic soup bucket" in the freezer is full. Then you realize you aren't going to get to have any because there is onions in there. :-(

In case you aren't familiar with the concept of the "magic soup bucket" it's a 5 qt bucket kept in the freezer, into which all leftover vegetables (and their juices) and meat that isn't enough to feed anyone, goes. Just about anything is ok to throw into the bucket, except potatoes, rice, noodles, or any other sort of pasta (they turn into a nasty mush when defrosted and re-cooked, so don't put them in there). When it is full, you defrost it, add water and salt, and turn it into a pot of soup. The flavors are different every time, as no 2 batches are ever the same. Imagine a soup with flavors from ham, pot roast, pepper steak, terriaki chicken, and chili, along with carrots, green beans, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, tomatoes, and eggplant. It is basically a free meal made up of stuff that most people would throw away...a sort of "garbage soup". And it's always AMAZING! And I don't get to have any this time, because what is in that bucket is likely to cause me to have another gall bladder attack. -
