Weekend Epic Failure

Cooking and I tend to be enemies, "frenimies" at the best of times. This week I think we took two steps backwards, whatever that would be called: perhaps that would make us "supenemies."

Last night I started preparing spinach lasagna, one of the Prince's favorites. I opened up the mushrooms only to find that they all were sporting a white beard just like the seven dwarfs. It is my own fault as they had been in the fridge for over a week, but still. This is a veggie lasagna and the mushroom act as the "meat." Of course I am also out of hamburger, pork, and only enough chicken for Sunday's dinner.

At the same time the Prince and I were preparing to be stuck in our snow castle at least until the upcoming storm had passed. Thus, I through up my hands and decided, we were just going to have to do without mushrooms.

Thirty to forty minutes later I was ready to put the mixture over my noodles only to find that I was out of my lasagna noodles. This NEVER happens. I'm pretty good about keeping two boxes of all the types of noodles I use a lot. I was so stinkin mad and had to cover the mixture and move onto a whole new meal.

Rice and veggies it is. Sounds simple. I even decided to use the frozen veggies. Too bad I burned them to a crisp.

The rices wasn't burnt too terribly bad so we had mozzarella rice and I microwaved some edamame.

By this point, me and dinner were through.

Fast forward to today and I was extra cautious and decided against multi-tasking so that I wouldn't burn tonight's dinner. I was halfway through and realized I didn't cook the dang chicken this afternoon. Seriously? If it weren't essential to I don't know... LIVE, I would so give up cooking from this day forward.


  1. Awww, hunny! Don't be offended, but your post made me laugh. Probably 'cuz I've done that myself more times than I'd like to admit. You're very resourceful, though! Sounds like you mostly pulled it off in the end.

  2. Laugh away my friend, after days like that there is much more we can do.
