You guys, I know. I KNOW, ok? I’m not posting, I promise I will and don’t. Then I come back, ask for forgiveness and promise to post more often and then I don’t. I offer you teasers about what I’m cooking, promising to tell you more about it “soon” and then I’m gone for weeks at a time. I’m like the ultimate Bad Boyfriend.
Please don’t quit me yet.
I offer you today a kitchen fail. I have no real fix for it, just wanted to tell you about something that didn’t work in my kitchen. But I offer it to you with a promise: tomorrow I will post a delicious, healthy, awesome for summer salad. No lie, I made it for dinner on Tuesday and then had it for lunch on Wednesday. I will have it for you, with photos tomorrow.
Meanwhile, I had this great meal planned for my husband for father’s day. His favorite foods- steak, roasted potatoes, green beans. All pretty simple and easy to make- nothing new, sort of his favorite dinner standard. What could go wrong, right?
Well, it started with the lack of soy sauce. I couldn’t do my usual marinade. Then, I was distracted by the toddler while making a different marinade and it ended up far too salty. Then I overcooked the steak. And forgot to add garlic to the potatoes. Sigh. At least the green beans were good.
Lest the husband think I was passive-aggressively cooking, I made a good dessert. Granted, a great deal of it was purchased but whatever. I got points.
Pound cake with strawberries, blueberries and whipped cream. No fail. Really.
