I pride myself on being able to think on my feet in the kitchen, always tasting and adjusting along the way. But here's the thing... sometimes I straight up fail. I'm not saying "eh... not my favorite thing" fail, but rather "this is disgusting on all levels" fail.
Exhibit A -- A slow cooker mushroom soup. I turned these lovelies...
...into this awful mess.
I can't even blame the lighting... this straight up looked like concrete vomit. I wish I could say it tasted great, but it didn't. My best friend and husband lovingly ate it and said it was "good." What thoughtful bullshitters.
You know what though? It's okay that this sucked. When you try new things, you're inevitably going to bomb a few of 'em. Remind yourself... you don't have to love every thing you cook... and it's just fine if some things turn out bad.
And at least you won't be the food blogger who made gray soup.
