An Easter…Oops!

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!

    Not only cooking, but LIFE is “a series of triumphs and failures” as well. When all done you hope to have more triumphs than failures – and – so far you (and I) are succeeding πŸ™‚

    1. Yes that is true. We actually put the crumble in the fridge and it set up…sort of. πŸ˜‰

    It was a wonderful Easter dinner–we didn’t miss the dessert–we had Aiden’s Easter candy πŸ™‚

  3. What went wrong? You left me intigued.

    1. I needed to add flour to the crumble and I really should have used the recipe. In baking I’ve learned you need to use a recipe. In savory cooking it’s much easier to cook without a recipe. Thanks for reading!

  4. What went wrong? I am intrigued

  5. It’s easy to talk about what goes well, and yet we learn a lot when things don’t go as we expected! Congrats on your honesty!
