It’s Good Food Friday here at mamacino…the day I am supposed to present you all with a simple, delicious and healthy recipe for you to whip up and feed your family. Well…not today, I’m afraid.
It hasn’t been a great week in the kitchen.
I might be known amongst my family and some of my friends as being a bit of a perfectionist. The one who always does the right thing, has a tidy house, never swears (I LOVE saying the ‘f’ word in front of my brothers…they think it is the naughtiest thing ever and whisper and giggle in hushed tones about it). My laundry is always tidy and the basket empty. I make most of our food from scratch…I have even made my own cheese! I know how to fold a fitted sheet and my hair is usually blow dried. However.
I am not perfect…I am so far from perfect, I don’t even know the language. I’m getting used to this. I’m starting to own my imperfections and even embrace them. And so…I am sharing this catastrophe of a cooking week with you….
This week I made dairy-free ice cream. Well, it was okay…but not good enough to share. I am going to keep working on it though because I think it could be awesome.
Then I made a dairy-free, gluten free chocolate cake. I know, I know…asking for disaster! I had big plans for this cake. It was for a friend to say thank you for saving me from my children when I was so sick with sinusitis last week. This gorgeous friend will be here any minute and the cake is sitting on the bench looking more like a pancake…I’m not sure what to do with it…maybe it will taste okay…maybe.
Even the play doh I made for the girls was second rate! It’s currently stuck all over my table and rolling pin…and a few bits have even been smudged into my good Turkish rug for good measure…oh dear.
On a brighter note…I am digging these new kicks I bought on line…I might use them to run out these failures and come back to the kitchen bright and optimistic next week!
And so I have nothing. Nothing to offer you. Maybe just have baked beans on sour dough with pesto or hummus…that’s what we’re having!!
Have you ever had a cooking disaster? Tell me your tales of imperfection in the kitchen to make me feel better….it’s not just me, is it?
Have an awesome weekend!
