This tweet came through my stream yesterday from Hollee (one of my favorite people), after I had put on Facebook that I had spent hours baking my favorite Homemade Granola that I’ve made a kajillion times only to have the recipe go awry somehow.
I tasted the granola, that I was going to gift to the Teachers at Princess’ school for Teacher Appreciation week, and it was awful — it had a sort of plastic-y taste.
Frustrated and disappointed were just the tip of the emotional ice-burg.
Her tweet got me thinking though, do y’all really think that everything I make always comes out perfectly and deliciously?
That thought sent me (and still does) into gales of much needed laughter.
Oh y’all — I am so far from the perfect cook — I’ll get so excited about a new recipe and spend time creating it and cooking it only to taste it and think– “Well, damn. That’s about 10 shades of wrong”
There are nights where Nathan gets all excited about a new dish that I’m making because of the smells or the way I’ve been hyping it up only to end up with a Supreme pizza from Pizza Hut instead.
Hollee got me thinking — would y’all like me to share these blunders and then possibly, if I figure out what I did wrong, how I fixed it?
Would y’all be willing to share YOUR kitchen damns?
I’d love to hear about them and we’ll probably all be better and more confident for seeing that others aren’t all June Cleaver-Martha-Betty Crocker all the time, too.
So — Get Ready — Get Set —-
Go — Share your Kitchen Damns in the comments, please.
Who knows what solutions we might find amidst the commiseration and the laughter.
