[EOTW] Fumble


I wish that my final football food related post could be titled ‘touchdown!’ but unfortunately I had to land on fumble instead. I didn’t even come up with anything creative to make for the Super Bowl, but somehow it all went wrong. So wrong that I didn’t even take pictures of what I made! I also didn’t really eat much of it. I tried to make the classic wings, pizza rolls, and mozzarella stick combo from scratch, which I’ve done before with great results. Things just weren’t going my way this time. My wings were just OK, I overcooked the pizza rolls, and just totally failed on the mozz sticks. If only I had been blogging here last year when I put effort into making team themed food (New England and Manhattan style clam chowder)!

Anyway, the rest of the week was also pretty lackluster. I relied a lot on quick pasta dishes because I had classes a couple nights this week. I also became utterly obsessed with these fudge stripe cookies. Not very sophisticated, I know. I had them for the first time when we were stranded in the basement and now I can’t get enough. Oh, and how could I forget – There was a possible kitchen mouse sighting that put me in too much fear to enter the kitchen for two days. And when I say possible sighting I mean possibly imaginary. Heh.

    love your stories–totally hear you on things not turning out as planned (just told a lava cake story along those lines) or just being ho-hum. But that makes the triumphs all the more triumphant:-) Especially love your cookie photo–fudge strips rock:-)

      Thank you so much! You are totally right and I’m ready to feel triumphant again! Just read your lava cake post. Ha! Thank goodness you caught the pesto! Sometimes it’s nice to read about the cooking mishaps that happen to the best of us. Despite it all your cakes still look awesome!

        was hoping others would get a kick out of the pesto part. Recently started labeling ALL leftovers that go into the freezer, but the pesto must have gone in before I turned the labeling corner. Looking forward to your next Triumph:-)
