Bloodied, But Unbowed

HELLO SUNSHINE.   Undaunted, she set about in search of her mandoline.

I could tell you about my loaf of bread that was both underbaked and a doorstop at the same time. Or maybe about the Grapefruit Vermouth Marmalade that you could use as weed killer. I might even have time to regale you about the reception of a one-pan chicken and rice dinner that was Not. Good.  Undaunted by the less than stellar results of my return to the kitchen,  today I attempted to make lime marmalade by using a mandoline to slice the whole limes and I could tell you all about that, too. But right now I’m looking for the bandaids.

    1. Chances are slim, Pam. I’m an aged crone who can’t do anything right any more. Can’t wrap a package, can’t paint a bedroom, can’t follow a recipie. But does it stop me from trying? NO I AM INDOMINABLE.

  1. Those recipe was easy (… to me. This is how I always go wrong. 😢 ) but I had my doubts about it because of its Euro origin. It was crafted for a Parisian palette so I questioned the level of sweetness. That’s not what went wrong – it was the addition of the vermouth that spoiled it. Up until that moment, the brew in the pot was sweet smelling and a lovely shade of deep pink. As soon as I poured the vermouth into it, the smell and the sweetness in the air immediately disappeared and it turned so dark that light wouldn’t shine through it. It was a sad culinary event. Also I might have overcooked it.
