This past week I made three recipes that flopped. Count them — 1, 2, 3. How’s that for a successful week?
The first recipe was for zucchini fritters. The fritters fell apart quite easily. I made a mash out of them just to save the dinner. Bummer.
The second recipe I thought for sure would be wonderful — Chocolate Maple Crunch Banana Muffins. This recipe flopped because of user error — me. I should have allowed the muffins to cook through another 5-10 minutes but I was afraid they would burn so took them out early.
The third recipe was for Curry Turkey Meatballs. The recipe used ground turkey. It flopped. The meatballs wouldn’t stick together.
I’m new to paleo cooking so perhaps all of these were my fault but I doubt it. Okay, okay. Can it really be that they were all user error? I really don’t think so as I follow recipes to the “t” so …
Anyway — I’ll be posting more recipes soon. I didn’t want to post three flops for you although maybe someone could learn from my mistakes. Hmmm … as Thomas Edison would say “Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.”
In addition to my cooking blunders, this week also brought lower back pain which was probably due to all the garlic mustard plants that I pulled out by hand. But I’m happy to say that my chiropractor has me back on the mend. One adjustment and I almost feel like new.
I also refinished an adirondack chair. I’ll post on that soon. It was a success! Now I have a bamboo table to refinish. The summer projects are just beginning!
