Hi Friends 🙂
The weekend is almost here!
Have you ever seen someone that you SWEAR you know – but you can’t figure out from where? There is a girl at my gym that I have seen twice now – and I know I know her, but I can’t place her. Did I work with her? Is she one of my sisters’ friends? Or does she just look like someone I know? If I see her again I will ask her, even though I feel really creepy just thinking about doing that.
Has this happened to you? How did you deal with it?
Since I’m trying to keep track on the blog, here are my treadmill stats for the day:
On Wednesday night the plan was to make dinner incorporating a new recipe from this cookbook:
The recipe is called Roasted Cauliflower with Dates and Pine Nuts.
Sounds good, right? Here is the picture. I thought it looked really delicious:
And here is how my attempt turned out:
It turned out horrible. I burnt most of it because a glass fell (as I was putting clean dishes away) and a piece of glass fell near my foot, cut through my sock and into my foot. At first I thought I only cut my sock but then I looked down and saw my bloodstained sock and ran upstairs to get a bandaid – it took me a while to hop on one leg up the stairs (didn’t want to stain the carpet, but I did anyway) and then by the time I got downstairs the sauce had burned and there was nothing I could do. AAHHHHH!!
I needed something for dinner, so I turned to my stand-by: EGGS. I made a eggs benedict type of dish, almost like a deconstructed spinach omelet (who has been watching too much Top Chef? ME!) It only used 4 ingredients:
Garlic Gold Olive Oil
Salt/Pepper (on the show 5 Ingred Fix, salt/pepper is a freebie, so it doesn’t count!)
First I roasted up my tomatoes in the Garlic Gold oil:
Then I wilted my spinach and cooked my egg. All together now:
I love eggs and I love any excuse to make them. Even if it involves wasting forty minutes on a recipe that ends up burning on the stove. 😦
What do you do when a recipe doesn’t turn out quite right? Do you try to fix it or do you pitch it and move on? For me, if it burns or way overcooks, I pitch it. Otherwise, I put on a happy face and eat my meal anyway.
Have a great day!
