Ever work for hours on a meal that is really good but once you actually sit down to eat it you are no longer interested? This happens to me all the time, I will slave in the kitchen and get so excited but the minute I sit down to eat dinner with Matt I no longer feel like eating. It is so sad actually but I guess the point is for Matt or my family to love what I made….but is it too much to ask for me to enjoy my work as well?
Last night I made a wonderful meal with recipes from Giada, I made roasted pork loin with a smokey pepper sauce, cheese pop overs and roasted garlic mash potatoes and it was so good…..but I did not enjoy it. THEN, I made dessert; Pumpkin pecan cookies with a Maple glaze and my “glaze” decided to soak into the cookies instead of sitting nicely on top! BOO! They look awful but still taste good! I brought some up for my co-workers and I see them giving these odd little cookies the “eye”! Oh well………..you can’t win them all!
