Another brilliant comment

Last night I was trying to figure out what to make for dinner with the ground beef I took out of the freezer. I finally came across a recipe on the Internet for Spanish rice with ground beef. I didn't exactly have all the ingredients so I had to improvise a little bit. Hubby got home and as he was eating he asked if this was a recipe I came up with on my own. I knew what was coming and said "kind of." I asked him if he liked it and he said "I like it better when you follow a recipe." for the disclaimer he added "I can't blame you, you didn't have much to work with." translation, shopping day is tomorrow and we're out of food. Somehow I don't think this is a compliment. Basically he's saying if I came up with it on my own, it sucks. Or maybe he's saying I had so little to work with, meaning my brain. No that's not it. He's too nice (or maybe to scared) to even think this one. What he really wants me to do is to follow the recipes he likes, never changing a thing. I guess it's back to my bloggy friends for more ideas, don't worry I won't change a thing when copying your recipes, or else the food chain as we know it may come to an end. Just ask hubby.

Trick-or-treat! Hey Christina, this was so fun! Glad there are no monsters that lurk around your place, "witch" reminds me Happy Halloween!

Christina, I am giggling under my breath. Men...how would we come up with all those great recipes if we didn't experiment a little bit. Cookin is a science, after all.

Uh oh. It sounds like he hurt your feelings. Or ticked you off. Can't quite decide which. :-)I've blown it a few times when I get creative, too.

Hee hee! You tried and that's good. At least you tried to make a meal right? Next time just let them eat cereal! (But if you do, don't tell them I told you too! LOL!)

I'm with you.. when I try something new (recipe or not) it's really hit and miss.. sometimes I wonder why I even bother trying :(

You know men say such insensitive things at times, doesn't it drive you nuts??? LOL

I have had my moments too, usually I'm lucky that new recipes hit it off with my family, but there have been a few that they really didn't like LOL

Hugs,
Sandra
