It was bound to happen..

Doesn't Deserve A Title Curry

I pride myself on knowing how to cook. I also know that I cook well, most of the time. Even when I don't cook well the food is still passable. That dish up there was not passable. The son of a bitch didn't even want to photograph well. Jerk! At least give me something you no good for nothing curry!

I really wanted curry. So I made a curry. I use to make curries all the time. For some reason this one didn't want to taste good. I did all my usual tricks to make it passable but nothing worked. Was it the almonds that I used instead of the cashews that I usually use but wanted to save for another dish? Was it that I didn't put tomatoes in the curry this time? Curry powder old? Did I forget a secret ingredient? What was it? Maybe the red pepper was bad? I'll never know and I guess that's OK. Cooking a bad meal has made my brain wake up again and I've been thinking about food nonstop ever since and have come up with some new ideas for some new recipes. That makes me excited. The fact that this curry is still in my fridge doesn't make me excited. Peter says he will eat it...NEWS FOR HIM..if he doesn't take it to work on Monday it is in the TRASH!


How does that song go? "The shit is bananas B-A-N-A-N-A-S!"

Reno thinks bananas are the shit! She put this one to a slow death the other night. Some got in her mouth. Some was plastered all over her body, clothes and face. The rest was on her chair. Oh yeah. Some was also in her hair. At least she didn't throw it on the floor.

She also thinks Avocado Sandwiches are the shit.

Ahh, so sorry about the curry!! But hey, you have had WAAAAAY more kitchen successes than messes, so brush it off!! No worries!!

The part about bananas and avocados "being the shit" (thank you, Gwen Stefani, for the "b-a-n-a-n-a-s" lyrics) made me crack up, oh my goodness, haha :0D

And now I have that banana song stuck in my head. But the cute pic of Reno was totally worth it. :)

We all have kitchen bummers now and then. And mushy bananas was one of my faves as a baby, but my parents pre-mushed them for me. I'm sure I still made a pretty good mess.

I wonder what happened with the curry. I'd say it was old curry powder. Funny, but I never put curry powder in my curries.

Reno is enjoying the full banana experience!
