Belly flops in the kitchen

Successes and failures in the kitchen can often be metaphors for life. Such as, you need to take risks in order to get out of your comfort zone and try new things. Sometimes it will pay off and you'll make an exciting new discovery. Other times you'll fail epically. That was dinner tonight.

Does it mean I'll never have salad again? Of course not, but tonight's dinner was gross. I think the problem was that I tried to do too  many things at the same time. Tzatiki, corn and roasted green peppers are actually not awesome all mixed together.  Thankfully (baked) fried tofu can save almost anything. The tzatiki was alright, but just not as a salad dressing. I give this dinner a three out of ten and a sad panda face. On the plus side, if you stick it out through dinner-the next course is dessert. Keep calm and have a cupcake.
Chocolate peanut butter cupcakes, life's silver lining.
