gourmet smourmet

Husband often laughs because I hardly ever follow a recipe exactly, as if I've spent years in culinary school and actually know what to do in the kitchen.

I laugh because that sort of out-of-the-box activity sometimes generates splendid meals,
but more often it generates tragedies.

In this case, I would like you to know that it produced a tragedy for all taste buds involved.

But alas, how would I ever know that grapes, nutmeg, arugula, and grape juice absolutely DO NOT compliment one another until I actually try it?
Surely that's how Julia Child operated, right? By the way, did you know that you can watch The French Chef archives here?


  1. Well, how do you know if you don't try? We've all had our share of trying something that sounded so right and turned out so wrong.

  2. I hardly ever follow recipes for lunch dishes, I just get inspired. They usually turn out ok but not always of course. I don't know what arugula is so I can't imagine what you've made. The pictures look yummy, though; too bad we can't eat these.

  3. BEST WEB LINK EVER! thanks for that!

  4. You are brave for even trying some of the stuff you try ... & braver still to publish your bloopers :)

  5. That made me laugh...reminded me of my calamari and clam night.....

    it happens to everybody I think.....
    it looked good though..

    and THANKS for the Jullia Child Archives..going ther right now...

    more later,

  6. Hey, you never know unless you try, right?
    Agree with everyone else - it did look good!
