I'm the complete slacker and writer of EMW, reporting in today for the first time in FIVE DAYS.
I know you all didn't authorize an impromptu vacay. I have no excuses.
I do have pictures, however.
Saturday night, we entertained some friends and I made a green cheesecake and purple chicken. Sigh... The first was on purpose. The second... not so much.
That steaming pot of yum is my usual curry. However, instead of green cabbage, I had the brilliant idea to use purple.
Note to self: Purple cabbage turns meat purple. :(
I added the tofu in later, which eventually did take on a nice purple hue. Ugh!
My guests were all smiles despite my kitchen mishap. Thankfully.
I made pistachio cheesecake for dessert. It was supposed to be green, of course.
I used a ready-made graham crust, a box of sugar-free pistachio pudding, a box of sugar-free cheesecake pudding, and 2 3/4 cup skim milk. Yum!
I am currently working on a new recipe for one of my writing gigs. I cannot wait to share it with you!
What's the worst kitchen "mishap" you've had?
Have you had any entertaining "nightmares" (ie: embarrassing things happen when entertaining people)?
Do you experiment with recipes when you're cooking for someone new or go with old favorites?
