Dinner gone wrong - food flops happen to everyone, right?
I love to blog about dishes that I (and others) make that turn out wonderfully.
I rarely write about the flops - why would I? But I feel like it's a topic that should be addressed because it happens to everyone ... right?
I've been on a streak of food flops lately, the most recent being a recipe that involved lentils, smoked sausage and my slow cooker. It wasn't my worst, but it was close. The dish earning that distinction was when I made dinner for my mom and sister last spring. It was a healthy vegetable stew that even my health-nut sister wouldn't touch. It went straight to the compost pile - there was no point in saving the leftovers.
I think I would feel a little better about the dinner failures if I didn't feel so isolated. So I'm asking, dear readers, won't you share your terrible dinners with me, so I don't feel so alone? And if you have any advice for dealing with such flops, from "shut up and eat it" to ordering pizza, I'm all ears.
Bonus points to whomever can comment or e-mail me with a delicious lentil recipe.
