Last Night's Dinner

alternate title:
What NOT to Cook



Garlic Veggie Bake looked so good on paper.

But seriously? You know it's bad when my kids are picking out the onions as the GOOD PART.

No need to worry about hurting my feelings in the comments.
It smelled good, tasted bad, and looked really really ugly.

Heather said...

Hmmmm.... It does look a little weird, but not horrid. It was really that gross, huh?? That stinks when you put time into something and it doesn't pan out.

Stacey said...

I'm sorry your dish didn't turn out.

I hate when those things happen. I made a skillet taco bake once...I swear I have now tasted evil.

Corrine said...

i was going to say that it doesn't look very good...sorry it didn't work out...thats why i try to stay away from healthy baked things :)

Kimberly said...

Not the most appetizing looking dish I've ever seen, no...

diana said...

ummm, yah... doesn't look appetizing. did you like it, though?

i left you a comment on your post on 13 year olds and boyfriends. stumbled across your blog through two different sources and enjoyed my visit.

Whitney said...

That's weird because it actually sounds pretty good. I'm sorry it didn't work out :( But hey, now you know not to make it again right? :)

kristen said...

That's a great visual.

I love that you can poke fun at yourself. Live and learn, right?

Two Princess Girls said...

I've been dieting to long because it looks DELICIOUS!

Doran & Jody said...

Wellllll you dish looks exactly what Doran would LOVE to eat. He likes harvest time where he cooks up some squash (yuck), adds onions and tomatoes and then tops it off with 10 pounds of cheese. Ok maybe not that much cheese. So are you saying that is not a makeagainer at your house?

The MomBabe said...

Is that spinach? I can't tell.

Sorry you put effort into a crap dinner. I hate when I do that.

The Wiz said...

So the green stuff is spinach? Yes?

That's one way to lose weight, I guess.

I get way depressed when new stuff doesn't turn out well. I take it very personally.

JustRandi said...

Yeah, its zucchini, yellow squash, spinach, onions, garlic, several spices, olive oil, and a boatload of Parmesan cheese over the top.

It was just weird.

I guess when you experiment with new recipes you just sometimes hit a bad one.

I don't take it too personally.
- - Unless it happens several nights in a row.

Lena said...

LOL! This made me laugh. I hat it when I try something new and have to say to my dh "If it doesn't taste good, we can always order pizza..."

Where's the beef? j/k

"Vern" said...

Soooo, I guess you know what to take to your next RS Dinner...? Sorry. Couldn't help it.

Sue said...

Oh dear. Well, um, at least they liked the onions? Or something?

Tonya said...

It's a bummer how many things look good on paper but don't pan out in real life.

You'll get em next time.

Tami Vincent said...

Wow! That does look really sick, sorry It sounds like it should be wonderful, however I do love your stroganoff recipe.

Jill said...

Well, at least it smelled good. You could have been stuck with a really gross smell in your kitchen for days.

Tori :) said...

Yeah... it doesn't look too great. Onions are good.

Nancy Face said...

Yeah, it looks really ugly, but I'm certain I'd LOVE it! I like everything you put in it...I'd just add shrimp and my joy would be complete!

I'm serious.

The Morris Fam said...

The reason I only follow recipes that have a picture! "Sounds good" is a phrase I only like when I'm using my ears! Nice try. :@)

Lauren said...

Mmm, I think it looks good. Seriously!

No Cool Story said...

After reading the ingredients I'm going to say that it actually looks yummy.
:D
YUM!
