This weeks Mofo theme is budget. I will actually be following most of the prompts for this week. The prompt for today is pantry meal. I am all about pantry meals and I was stoked! Well, I had one idea in mind, and then I saw a video for something else and decided to try a different recipe. It was for a potato lasagna using thinly sliced potatoes in place of noodles. I had all the ingredients and I was ready! Well, the recipe was an epic fail. The recipe said to cook the lasagna for thirty minutes, after almost two hours the potatoes were still a little on the crunchy side! I finally gave up. I do not like to waste food so I will try and finish baking it today. I'm okay when something turns out just kind of okay. And I'm okay when I throw a recipe together and it's an epic fail but I get super frustrated when I follow a recipe and it's a fail. There's no closure. Is it something I did, or a mistake in the recipe?? You just never know!! Anyway, I was tired and pissed so I had ice cream for dinner!
Sometimes things just don't work out, and you have ice cream for dinner. It's one of the pleasures of being an adult.
