It’s time for that favorite post…the worst edible screw ups of the year that didn’t make it to the blog! This year, most of them involved eating out instead of cooking. Which is a screw up in itself…I need to be cooking more! I love it and I’m not as bad at it as I am at running long distances.
Or short distances. But, I digress…
If you don’t like bourbon, don’t go to a bourbon tasting. By the end of this, I was drunk, smelled like an old man with no family left in the world, and was so belligerent that I actually scratched my sister for refusing to order a side of ranch with our fries.
She forgave me. My hangover did not.
Oh, don’t know how this ended up in there…this was awesome.
The taste was awesome-meaty, creamy, and spicy from the ramps. However, these balls were incredibly dense and heavy. I don’t mind a sinker, but it can’t sit like a bowling ball in my stomach. Next time, I’m using seltzer instead of water. The flavorings might stay the same, though…stay tuned.
Tia Pol is a great tapas restaurant…as good as my photography skills are bad. No flash+ plenty of wine = big ole problem.
I tried to do a quick roast with extra olive oil, a very hot oven, and some quick cooking veggies, but it really backfired.
Soggy, limp, and utterly tasteless.
That’s what she said.
I know that it’s now closed. We need not beat a dead horse. But…yeah. Service was fine but the food was so-so at best.
Honey mustard? Great. Carrots? Great. They might go together, right? Wrong. So, so wrong. It tasted like a field of grass died in my mouth.
Cantonese roast pork this ain’t. Sauerkraut aside, this had as much taste as a cardboard box. The dessert was great and the veggies were fresh. Why did they see it fit to murder this poor pork roast, especially when it was already dead?
Enough said, people. Enough said.
Here is to a year of more delicious food, less disappointments, and peace on earth.
Happy New Year! See you all January 2!
