Last night, I was excited to try a tomato tart recipe that was the perfect excuse to use a pie crust that has been in the freezer for months and beautifully ripe farmers’ market tomatoes.
Things were looking good until I got past the photo shoot. My version of cooking the tomatoes was only making them soggy, and the pie crust wasn’t fully defrosted.
Needless to say, Craig came home to find me frustrated over a crumbly crust and almost teary over wet tomatoes. Such silly little things to get upset about, but in the moment I was annoyed that these ingredients were going to waste and somehow I ruined dinner.
Craig changed the mood by giving me 3 cheap restaurant options to choose from, he helped me to quickly clean up the kitchen, and within 5 minutes we were headed out the door. A cooking failure wasn’t going to ruin our night!
Maybe I should screw up dinner more often?! 😉
Have you had any cooking debacles lately? Please share!
