Day 30.

An A for Effort.


Do you have a cooking achilles heal?  That one dish that no matter how hard you try, it just never turns out.  I have one.  You know what it is?  Guess.  Instant mashed potatoes.  No matter how hard I try, I cannot make proper instant mashed potatoes.  We found out today that Chloe's no-work dish is chocolate zucchini muffins.  This was her second attempt.  Last Sunday, she made attempt one.  They weren't even edible.  Today's attempt was better.  They were okay, but not right.  I have no idea what she did wrong.  She followed the directions.  The measurements were right.  Cooktime was fine.  Muffins were just not good.  Edible, but not good.  She's determined to have victory, though, so we'll try again next week!

If it makes you feel better I have made three cooking fails in the last week. I burned chicken in the crockpot (talented I know), cupcakes that didnt turn out, and an avacado pasta that was WAY over lemony. But if we keep at it we will get better! Good luck for next week Chloe. I figure as long as nothing catches fire its a win :)

That is a bummer of the week!! And, since I managed to catch paper towels on fire, I have no judgement on what's a win. LOL!!

Oh goodness, I forgot about the paper towel incidence. LOL

Good luck Chloe! I hope 3rd times a charm! (And, chocolate zucchini sounds yummy, so, will you share the recipe?)
