Worlds worst spaghetti!

April 26th, 2006 at 03:37 pm

It was an expirament that failed.

Sometimes not having the right ingredients works well though. I invented 'hockey chili' from substituting, but last night was not one of those successes.

Edison failed a bit before making the lightbulb. I recall penicillan was an accident after many failures. My kids all failed many times before they learned to crawl, my youngest is busy failing to walk (we call it trying though).

I wonder how many failures, on average, it takes to make a success? I wonder if anyone keeps track (of their own failures, or of famous ones)?

    Remmeber the old expression, "Nothing ventured, Nothing gained". In any case you now have a funny story to tell in future.Smile

    yeast will not rise if the water isnt warm enough
    yeast willnot rise if the water is too hot
    when a recipe calls for colored eggs to be baked on top of the fancy Easter Bread, DO NOT hard boil them first- or they will explode all over your oven..

    all proven, by yours truly...

    i change and substitute recipes alot.. the flops i usually have are from a recipe by someone else.. i know what the feeling is to have a cake seperate.

    I just had a cooking failure on Sunday. I was making goulash and was looking for the sweet paprika. I got the hot paprika instead. Its edible only with a lot (a lot!) of sour cream. I consider it diet food, because I wouldn't be able to survive seconds.

    Heh, diet food.

    It's the failures that keep me from being more adventurous with spices and such when I cook! If I made something and it was inedible (with or without a lot of sour cream, hehehe), it'd kill me to have wasted the food that went into it, ya know?

    Maybe I should start with doctoring up cheap veggies from the veggie stand and work my way up to experimenting on (more expensive) meat... hmmm.

    p.s. What's hockey chili? Do you have a recipe posted for it?

    Err I'll go post one if you like.

    And I found that expiraments can often be drowned in cheese, though thats not the healthiest thing in the book.
