Getting Real With A Recipe Fail


I'm about to get super real with you.

I failed last night.

It's not often that I fail at things. However, when I do, I feel totally defeated and pissed off. Last night, was no exception. I was so pissed off at the way the rice turned out. The recipe turned out to be mush (rice) with asparagus and chicken thrown in. Urgh! To me it was awful but Oscar and Gavin (my guinea pigs) said that it tasted okay. They both cleaned their plates but for me it tasted like chicken with oatmeal and crunchy asparagus. I guess not everything can be gourmet.

You live and you learn and I think the next time I attempt this dish I will make sure that the rice is a little dry. Maybe half cook it the night before. It really was the rice that made the entire dish nasty. Maybe I just need to find an alternative to the rice. I used brown rice, but maybe white would be better. I hate white rice though...bleh!

I'll figure it out and post it up with accurate measurements so that nobody has to experience The Mush.

Tonight on the menu we are having Salmon. I'm thinking that I'm going to make this grilled salmon with mustard sauce. It seams easy enough! I'll let you know how it turns out!

Hopefully it will turn out to be a keeper like my salmon patties.
