We were in quite a rush this morning getting dressed up and getting ready to have the family over for supper. I hadn’t gotten around to making my old fashioned sugar cookies, so at the last minute I decided on a strawberry crumble.
After our family arrived and we ate a beautiful supper, I began to assemble the dessert. This time I didn’t use a recipe. Big mistake. I saw that my confidence had gotten the best of me as I pulled the soupy crumble from the oven. Crumble is a simple dessert and I had failed! I was pretty bummed for a minute, but then I realized. I knew exactly what I had done wrong and all I could do was try again next time. It was a little embarrassing but I’ll recover. Next Easter I’ll really impress them!
Cooking is a series of triumphs and failures but it’s well worth the practice. The triumphs are edible after all. Happy cooking friends!
