What Not To Make

I started surfing Allrecipes . com yesterday, looking for something different to make. I got my recipe I was looking for and then continued to look for other ideas. Big mistake. Ok, I have the ingredients, sounds good and easy, I'll try it.

Kugel (Never forget the name!)
2 lbs noodles
10-12 eggs
1 cup butter
someone commented about their modifications so I tried my own
1/2 lb broccoli chopped
1 cup of spinach chopped
1/4 onion sauteed
salt and pepper

make noodles, mix with everything and put in a pan for 1 hr at 350 degrees.

See, really easy, sounds good (except for those who don't like specific veggies)

My hubby nicknamed it "The Embalmed Cassarole" The children had such pitiful faces and asked, "Do I have to finish this?" in the sweetest way. Baby #6 ate it just fine, but stopped after a while and just spit it out with a face that said "yucky". #5 lovingly gave me all of her portion and said it was for me.

This is not what I expected at all, but was pleased that hubby said it was ok to ditch it. I offered my "fix" of cutting it into pieces to put into a soup, hubby said, "Yeah, cut it into pieces to put into the trash." Guess I shoulda made a quiche!

House news: Hubby has all but one window in downstairs. He's also been finishing up the mudding of the downstairs room's drywall and cleaning up and getting rid of stuff. It's so nice to hear him say he's getting rid of things!! No pictures....cause we didn't take anymore. He's also scraping ceilings to get rid of all the "popcorn" texture.

As always, knitting in the evenings and weekends. I just found this beautiful, free shawl. I don't know if I'll make it or make a vest. I'm working on a vest right now. I dunno if I'm gonna write the pattern to sell or not, we'll see.

Other than that, all's quiet here. It's starting to warm nicely and I've been walking around the yard for exercise. It's difficult to workout at night (11p.m.-1a.m.) and be wide awake, so I'm opting for outside time with the children playing. Now, I can knit at night! :)

Ok, that pretty much all the update here. Have a blessingfull week!

I'm sorry your recipe didn't turn out. It sounds similar to one I make with spaghetti, broccoli, eggs, milk (not butter)and cheese and which my family loves. Perhaps it was lacking something or perhaps our tastes are different. Hopefully the next time you make something you'll have a better reaction from the family!

Sorry about your recipe. It doesn't 'sound' bad at all. I have made things that 'sound' good, but...try another one. You are a good cook, one flop in 2,000,000 is not bad.

Thanks for the shawl link, it's very pretty. I may try it...yeah, after...after...well...after something else I'm currently making. ^__^

This was to use up some noodles (which we have only when we get sick of potatoes and wild rice(s)) I forgot to say that we put shredded cheese on top, which helped, but it only made it taste like Mac-n-Cheese which is an empty "meal"! I don't think there is anything I can do to make noodle taste better except to not use them. I haveta get back in the habit of making my whole wheat noodles!
Jules: My reaction was the same as the rest of the family's. I was not disappointed that they didn't like it (they always like my cooking) I was disappointed in the waste of food and time!
bunches of yarn: I think I'll stick with asking God what to make - I have awesome results that my dh is telling me to write out the recipe! I'll probably only look up recipes that I know, but have just forgotten the amounts, like the crepes I made yesterday, they're gone & I shoulda made a quadruple batch!! I need to go make cookies, soon!
