2:00 pm. Roast Brussels Sprouts with Balsamic Vinegar Reduction.
Vinegar boiled over. Par boiled the sprouts, dried them, but they were still mushy and sloppy. And vinegary.
4:00 pm. Potato Pierogies from Scratch. After dicing the red onion, I accidently dumped all the red onion in the soapy sink. Rinsed off the onion and transferred it into a bowl. The vegetable steaming basket hurled itself off a cabinet shelf and landed in the bowl of onions.
I said, "Oh, screw this, this is a cooking slump."
No, I thought, I'll cut my losses and just finish the filling, then make the pasta tomorrow when the slump has lifted.
I got as far as, "add 1/4 cup of milk." Went to the store to buy milk. Looked up a replacement for the "garlic chives" the recipe called for (green onions).
7:00 Finished the filling; packed that up without incident. Successfully melted imported butter on top of lite popcorn for dinner.
10:00 Pulled the pork tenderloin out of the oven that had been cooking on "Slow Cook" all day. Lovely. Shredded. In BBQ sauce.
Gary says, "You know I don't like BBQ sauce." Which, no, I did not know that, you always get sauce. WTF BBQ, as they say.
So, even my cooking successes were failures today. Hope the curse lifts for the pierogi pasta.
