My mom always said, "If you can read, you can cook." Basically, following a recipe to it's every word should yield a fruitful return. My response to this: [I guess] I cannot read. I've tried two recipes in the last two days and have ruined both. However, I have also have been able to salvage both.
Today's challenge was the Meatless Meatballs. I thought it would be good as a Super Bowl snack and what the heck, a little barbecue sauce covers a lot of sins. Amie, Ralph and the kids came over early this afternoon and together, Amie and I used the botched concoction with the creativity of our combined cooking experiences, actually came up with something very good! Now, I'm not sure how the recipe was supposed to taste, but ours tasted pretty darn good! - and we didn't have to smother it in barbecue sauce. Even the kids liked it, so you know it's not a freakish food abomination.
I'm so proud I took a picture . . . yep that's them . . . at least that's what they looked like before I ate them! The moral of this story: Just because you can read does not mean you can cook, but two friends working together can overcome any obstacle!
