I don’t even know where to begin. For two days now, I’ve been trying to make moussaka from scratch. On Wednesday I was missing milk which is an important ingredient when making moussaka. Then off I went down town to buy some milk and ended up eating at this amazing Greek restaurant down at the pier. Then, yesterday — confident and all I dived into the recipe I was given by a family member; this was happening — “Today was the day I would make moussaka from scratch and succeed.” Well, the truth is I didn’t. Succeed that is. Everything looked really good and tasted really good along the way. I put it all together as the recipe said, and in the oven it went for about 45 minutes. After 45 minutes, I took it out and it was different. It turned out to be a liquid-ish lasagna with eggplant. IT actually tasted really good but it was wired to eat it and even though it tasted good it looked horrible and I spent 5 hours in the kitchen trying to make it work. Let’s just say that I will try this another time, but not in the near future. -maybe this fall or something. I’m far from giving up but for now i’m sticking to the moussaka dinner kit that I personally improve to make it amazing.
Today I was planning on making pasta carbonara sauce form scratch, but yesterday put some sort of fear of failing in me so i’m going for a safe alternative today. Chicken fillet with oven potatoes, mushrooms and Zucchini. Simple, a little boring but tasty and delish at the same time. I’ve made today dinner countless of times and blogged about it even more I’m sure. So I’m not posting it again today. But if you want me to re-post the recipe, send me an e-mail marked with Hetty’s chicken fillet and I will re-post it.
So that pretty much sums up my last three days in one. I hope y’all are having an amazing Friday so far and I hope to see you back here tomorrow for a new post.
