My sweet daughter-in-law sent out a tweet this past week
lamenting that she was not cooking savvy–
that she was not “Fried Pies and Fireflies”…
Well, I happen to know that my daughter-in-law is a wonderful cook and so talented in many things that I am not!
But then I thought, well, I guess when someones posts
blogs of delicious food day after day,
anyone could get a little intimidated at that!
It’s kinda like we all feel about Martha Stewart’s
perfect world she portrays 🙂
I do have a great passion for cooking,
but not everything I try turns out great….
We really love Wendy’s Chili and I tried
to re-create it for my blog this week.
I sent some in the sweet man’s lunch for him to try.
Now, mind you, that fella never has unkind words…
I asked him, “So…how was the chili?”
He paused…and said,
“Well, to tell you the truth, I really didn’t like it.”
“Ok,” I said, “what do you think it needs to taste like Wendy’s?”
“Well…probably to come from Wendy’s!”
Ok…so we will put that one on the back burner…so to speak 🙂
I also tried a biscuit and gray breakfast casserole…
Who doesn’t like biscuits and gravy…right?
It was quick, easy, had some wonderful ingredients…
as well as cheese…surely it would be heaven in a 9 x 13 pan…
I tried a piece before leaving for work and it was a
“NO”…an ABSOLUTELY NOT!
I told that sweet fella that I had left a few casseroles in the refrigerator for him, but I certainly did not mention that one.
The next day he asked,
“Can you tell me what all the dishes were in the refrigerator?”
After I went over the 3 he could identify, he said,
“What was that in the large pan?”
“Oh, you tried that?”
“Yes…” and complete silence…
“What did you think?”
“Well, it was quite horrible!”
“I tried to eat it but I really couldn’t even force it down…”
Yes, THAT”S what I want to be remembered for….
someone having to force my recipe down!!
There are many more examples of “fails”, but that’s why I’m here!
