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?

I do hate it when dinner is a disappointment, but I do love your blog. :)

I found you through Eden's blog. She did my son Ryder's 1 year pictures and I absolutely love her work. I've been following her blog for a little while and yours as well and all I can think is what an amazingly talented family you are!

I really enjoy reading your posts and have great plans to try many of your recipes.

Thank you for sharing them. :)
