Don't You Hate It When....
Dinner looked pretty today. The recipe sounded good too. But I won't be sharing it because ....... honestly? It was just not that great. It was good (faint praise) - but I wouldn't order it again if I had had it at a restaurant nor would I try to figure out how to make it. I wouldn't tell my friends about it, that's for sure, except possibly to point out the disappointment. The arugula was too bitter (and I do like arugula), the Cambozola cheese too blue (although that shouldn't have surprised me - it is lowering to admit but I do not like blue cheese.) I do think there are possibilities and things I would change if I were to try something inspired by this again. I would take into account the fact that I don't like blue cheeses and choose a cheese I like. Pretty obvious one might rightly point out. And I think that spinach would be a better choice than the arugula. Hmmmm, I may try this again - revamped - another day after all. It did have the twin virtues of being fast and easy. I'll let you know.
Don't you hate it when dinner is a disappointment?
