My version up next. Although the recipe got rave reviews online, I think my family would beg to differ. I see now why Pinterest only shows the crockpot and not the end result. If I would have seen the “after” picture I would have known my kiddos would turn their nose up to it. It reminded me of an old Navy Mess Hall reference of “Shibit on a Shingle”. If you know Pig Latin then you get the jist of what I’m saying.
Ummm…I’m thinking it will be seriously difficult to convince the kiddos to try this one.
I decided to make taste testing into a little game so I pulled out some index cards and asked the family to critique the dinner based on the following criteria:
Here are some results, and from the consensus I am probably not going to cook it again.
Seriously? Poopy!? Yucky!?
Overall it was a FAIL but the family time and critiquing fun was PRICELESS!
I have come to the decision that I am going to stick with my safe “go to” meals and just spice it up a bit. I have also noticed that the kiddos often beg me to make meals that they see on TV such as Spaghetti Tacos from iCarly or Yogurt Sundaes as Dora & Diego eat. As long as they are an ounce of healthy I guess I will just have fun with it and quit trying to be Martha Stewart. I’ll leave that to the Olive Garden and La Madeleine.
But since I am such a dedicated friend, I ran outside in the rain to show you the FAIL that I have been working on. Remember when I painted these chairs in one of my first posts (they were a win)?
LadyBug has been BEGGING me to paint some purple for our upcoming luau and the only chairs I could find lately are these:
See how dark the Rich Plum color looks on the cap? What can I lose to try it on curbside chairs-obviously my sanity is what I lost!
So now why do I keep thinking of this?
UGGGGG…You Win Some/You Lose Some!
Happy Treasure Hunting!
