breathe in, breathe out.

Don’t drop it, okay?

holly-prince:

…yeah…yeah, I know. I…yeah. But um, yeah, that…that tastes…huh. It could be…good…maybe?

image

… I know you’re tryin’. I know it’s hard. I just… I know, Holls, I know…. we didn’t mess it up, what?

Don’t drop it, okay?

holly-prince:

I dunno. Ss’always been alright, though. A squash is okay. Squash could be good inside of there, maybe?

image

Dunno. Things… don’t seem all that great right now, though. I… honestly have no idea I don’t think I’ve ever eaten one before? I was just naming things off. But I think the chicken’s getting there. Here. Does it taste good at least?

Don’t drop it, okay?

holly-prince:

…mm. After a long lot of years it’s not so bad. Err, maybe a something green in there too? For like vegetable.

image

Yeahh, just because you’ve done it for years doesn’t like… make it okay. That’s just me, though, m’not tryin’ to lecture you or anything, Holls… Oh, right. Green. Maybe like… I dunno. What green thing do you want? Like a squash? Or… something else.

Don’t drop it, okay?

holly-prince:

I know, though. I’m a pro by now. Yeah…yeah, a clove or two would be good, I think? Could give it some good like…flavor.

image

… yeah I dunno if that would help you case much, Holls. Kinda scared to hear that, actually. Okay, okay two’ll go in. So we have chicken and mushrooms and garlic and… I dunno what else. Maybe that’s good?

Don’t drop it, okay?

holly-prince:

I’m safe. I am. …it…smells funny, but I dunno. Maybe a little bit of it in the rest of the stuff would be good?

image

You might be, sometimes, but the stuff just… dunno, Holls. I just don’t know… You wanna throw a bit of it in with the rest? That sounds good. Maybe a clove or two considering this… is a really big pot.

Don’t drop it, okay?

holly-prince:

…yeah. Yeah, I know. Um. I dunno. Is garlic good?

image

You gotta be safe, yanno? And stuff like that makes things unpredictable… I don’t mind it? it’s a strong taste though. Here, smell it? It’s… not so bad?

Don’t drop it, okay?

holly-prince:

…if you say so.

image

Hey, c’mon. I… I’m not your Mom, yeah? You can do what you wanna do, Holls, I’m not gonna stop you. I just… I dunno. I just don’t like that kinda stuff, you know that… you wanna put some garlic in it too?

Don’t drop it, okay?

holly-prince:

Mushrooms are good. I like both sorts.

image

Yeahh, we’ll just go with the eating kind for now.

Don’t drop it, okay?

holly-prince:

…makes sense to me. What else do we put in there?

image

We can put… I dunno. Whatever we want in it? Do you like mushrooms?… the cooking kind not the other kind.

Don’t drop it, okay?

holly-prince:

…I don’t…I mean. Leave it…whole? Maybe? Doesn’t the bone have lots of flavor or something?

image

… you’re totally right. The bones have the flavor so just… I guess just plop it in there and we’ll let it marinade for… a bit?

Don’t drop it, okay?

holly-prince:

Uh…you know a few…dashes of that and some…sprinkles of this. 

image

That… looks like a safe amount. Should we… cut up the chicken or leave it whole?

Don’t drop it, okay?

holly-prince:

…that’s weird. I don’t get it.

image

Yeah, I dunno either. I just think we should have a lot of liquid in it before we try and soak the chicken. So maybe some wine and chicken stock and… you can decide on how much salt and pepper and stuff goes in.

image

Don’t drop it, okay?

holly-prince:

Nah, nah it’s not so bad. Chicken…stock? I don’t…what part of the chicken is that?

image

Yeah, yeah it’s like… they cooked a chicken and kept the juices and stuff. It’s for flavor. So it’s not really… a part. Just the taste?

Don’t drop it, okay?

holly-prince:

…eh, I don’t have anything better to do tonight. Yeah, like…cook the wine in the pot and just…you know. Put the rest of the stuff inside. Maybe.

image

You don’t, eh? Cooking with your best friend isn’t too lame, I guess.That… okay. I feel like chicken stock needs to go in too? Maybe? Because all wine sounds a little… strong.

Don’t drop it, okay?

holly-prince:

…experimenting sounds fun. We can try that. How hard could it be? It’s just food.

image

You wanna experiment? We can do that, for sure. I mean… not that hard, maybe. We just can’t burn the place down. So like… I guess a pot would be good? To pour the wine into? And we have to cut the chicken.
