The Best Laid Plans of Mice and Men...

Often go awry. Truly. I had this post all ready to go and cued up for yesterday, and I forgot to click publish. Whoops. So here we go, just one day late...

I attempted to make Moroccan Chicken in the crockpot night before last, and I had hoped to share the recipe with you all today, but it did not turn out. Alright, if I am being honest, it was inedible. So inedible, in fact, that we ended up trashing it and going out for burritos. Picture us looking like this (only way less hot) as we took that first bite. (Is anyone else ready for Modern Family to return?)

This is really something in these parts, since my husband will eat just about anything and we don't throw out food. (Please tell me I am not the only one who has leftover night about once a week. You know, the night where you eat all the random leftover food in your fridge, regardless of whether any of it actually tastes good together, just so you don't have to cook it doesn't go it waste.)

The frustrating part was I followed the recipe to the T, and it was a crockpot recipe, so I really can't explain why it tasted like poo. Literally. Here's hoping I have better luck with crockpot chicken and dumplings next week. Hopefully that one will turn out since it's from a different cook book.

Have you ever had a recipe backfire on you? Either way, have a happy weekend!


  1. We do leftover night something like twice a week. So don't feel bad! And I'm sure it was the recipe not you.

  2. Have Lindsay and I ever told you the Blondie story? It wasn't the recipe's fault, but it is a great example of food gone awry.
