This is not a real post.

But I don’t have time for a real post right now.

(I promise I’ll get one up later today – or tomorrow at the latest.)

Things are just hectic around here.  I know, you’re surprised.

Anyways, I just wanted to take a moment to prove to you why I still call this blog Misadventures in Cooking.

See, yesterday was Valentine’s Day.  Hubs is always in charge of our meal, and this year I took care of dessert.  Here’s Hub’s amazing dish: crab risotto topped with pan seared scallops:

Since we were both chocolate-d out, we decided to go with our old standby of strawberry shortcake for dessert.  A dish I have made many times before.  Unfortunately, it did not quite turn out:

It’s these little experiences that keep me humble.

Good thing I could camouflage it in the bowl with strawberries and whipped cream.

I’m so lucky he loves me no matter what.

  1. There is nothing wrong with a humbling experience :). But if you were lived near me, my family still would’ve ate that and said “Oh well we had something” LOL. So I still think you had a great meal ;).


  2. I think this is how Cake Pops got invented (don’t they roll up bits of cake into little round shapes?). I love how you just moved on and smothered it with strawberries and whipped cream.. you just need a name for your dish.. Strawberry shortcake mix-up?? ps your hubby is impressive.. I would be afraid to peel an orange in front of him, so you’re doing great!!


  3. LOL! I’ve so been there. 🙂 I completely ruined a batch of oatmeal cookies recently. It’s a recipe I’ve made a hundred times and I still can’t figure out what happened. I bet it was still delicious though! And that risotto….wow!!!
