Yesterday I tried to make figs filled with blue cheese wrapped in Bacon. I tried it several times, all day. It looks so simple. so easy; you just cut the figs sideways half way through, take out the stone, fill it with blue chesse, clsoe it wrap it with bacon and into the oven it goes. Yes, it sounds simple, but then you put it in the oven as written in the recipe, it smells good and it looked god the minute you put them into the oven. You wait, you take them out of the oven and it’s not only a mess but it taste horrible as well. I was in the mood to succeed. I tried several times because I was determinant to make it work, to make it perfect. But every time they came out horrible to look at and horrible in taste. After several tries I decided to give up for the day. I’m not giving up permanently but only for a while.
I fail a lot in the kitchen as everyone else, I try a hundred times before getting it right.Sometimes I’m lucky and I succeed at first try. But this week I’ve failed in every single dish I’ve tried to make this week. It makes me nuts, but I’m still hopeful and next weeks posts will be great. Some new recipes, a restaurant review and more so I’m pretty excited about that. This week has been sort of a mess, and I’ve not been able to blog every day because I’ve been too busy trying to perfect recipes that no matter what I did ended up as a disaster. Next week I will only be posting recipes I have perfected previously but I haven’t posted yet. That sort of gives me a calm feeling that next weeks post will come out everyday and I won’t stress about getting them to work because I’ve made it at least once before so I know what to do and what not to do. I’m sure they can be perfected even more but they are perfect enough to post at least.
Baking Sunday today, also turned into a no-show because confused Hetty manage to forget to buy heavy cream which was sort of a main ingredient in “Today’s” brownies. I will be making brownies soon, just not today due to the missing ingredient.
I hope y’all are having an amazing Sunday, and I hope to see y’all back here tomorrow for a new post.
