This week has been a rough week for me in the kitchen.
I have made tons of messes.
This crazy, random recipe I found at Allrecipes.com is my first fail.
I knew I had a bad recipe coming.
You can only cook so many good things until you just get a nasty one.
This one is a breakfast casserole I tweeted about.
Some of the ingredients are eggs, turkey sausage, browned, 8 pieces of bread, cubed, cream of mushroom soup, too much milk and cheese. I made it up on Saturday afternoon. It was supposed to sit overnight in the fridge and then bake for 1 hour. I was looking so forward to eating it, but had to bake in an extra hour. BARF! It was so bad I threw it away. Lesson learned...breakfast casseroles can't contain cubed bread. I don't like soggy. If you have been reading my blog long you know that I don't like mushrooms. I thought I was eating mushrooms. It is a consistency thing and this moist bread was horrible! NastY with a capital Y!!
Have you ever eaten lasagna chips?
We had them the other night. I made turkey and spinach lasagna.
I burned the top layer for some reason. I guess I did the last step ~broil~ for too long.
The kids turned their noses up!
I just scooped the top layer off and laid it on a plate.
Gary and I both looked at each other knowing what little gems we had discovered.
So yes it was a fail, but not too bad if you like crispy lasagna noodles with burned cheese on top!
After we ate the earlier mentioned lasagna I proceeded to put it in the fridge.
It was all the way in the fridge and I realized that it had a touch of tomato sauce on the bottom of the Pyrex. I JUST cleaned out my fridge...remember?
So I grabbed a washcloth to wipe up the sauce and the whole thing fell out of my hands and hit the tile. Seriously, you can't make this stuff up.
I CRIED! Gary helped me clean it up. I was so upset I forgot to take a picture until the very end.
See the pic above. My sweet husbands foot, lots of glass and the dustpan. Boo!
I was determined to make a fun breakfast meal. So, I got up early one morning and tried a new Banana/chocolate chip muffin recipe. They turned out 'ok' Not my favorite recipe...they are sort a bland, but the kids like them. Well, while mixing up all the ingredients TWO eggs rolled off the kitchen counter and hit the floor. (It just donned on me as I type this! I never replaced the eggs in the recipe. No wonder the muffins were so bad.) Anyway, one of the eggs landed on one of my brand new red throw rugs. I just bought at Target. I was so annoyed. I bought 5 rugs. My kitchen is big and open. I have to have one at the sink, one in front of the fridge, one in front of the oven, one by the back door, and another under the dog food bowls. If I wash one it will fade differently than the others. But I had to wash them, it was raw egg.
Any who...I washed rugs I'd had for less than a day. HoHum.
So the rest of the week I am totally off kitchen duty!
We are having simple things like pizza and sandwiches.
What have you been cooking lately?
