I had such grand plans yesterday. The day before I saw this post by Heather Bailey:
Her muffins looked SO good! They also didn't look like muffins. I found a recipe online for sour cherry strudel. I have wanted to try cooking with phyllo sheets for a long time, but never dared. My sister was going to be over. I thought it was a good time to try.
At the store I ended up picking up raspberries and blackberries instead of sour cherries. My sister will tell you that I have a hard time following a recipe exactly. -- I also have a hard time following a pattern, that's why I'm a pattern designer :)
It all seemed to go smoothly. It smelled good. It was okay. . . . We ate it with vanilla ice cream. It was perfectly acceptable.
I just wanted to love it.
I was disappointed. . . .
That's life isn't it -- learning how to handle disappointment. I have decided to handle this set back in a perfectly reasonable, adult manner. . . I will never cook again!
. . . at least until my kids are hungry in half an hour!
