This is what breakfast was supposed to look like:
|Paleo Mom's paleo pancakes.|
Don't those look amazing?! These are Paleo Mom's perfect pancakes. I was so excited to see this recipe that I totally didn't care I didn't have two green plantains like the recipe calls for. I could improvise. I was going to make this happen with good ol' bananas.
Or was I...?
|My paleo pancakes.|
I don't care how many pancakes you've made in your life. Paleo pancakes are a science. Follow directions! I totally went to the store after this disaster and got green plantains so I could follow her recipe to a T. Will follow up with a hopefully successful... you know... actual pancake soon. Meanwhile, it did make a pretty tasty mush:
|Breakfast: Mush, grilled kielbasa, and cantaloupe.|
Yes, it looks quite questionable, but my kiddos all had thirds! There must be a way to make this a smooth hot cereal... hmm...
If I didn't learn my lesson from dinner last night, I sure learned it today for lunch. I felt miserable again. The less grains I eat the more sensitive I am to them.
After lunch we finally made it to Sprouts. Totally made my day. I <3 that store. I was amazed by their selection of fresh produce. I wanted it all! Just take a peek in my kitchen:
|My overflowing fridge.|
The berries were a ridiculous price. A good kind of ridiculous. The strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries were all 2/$3! Tomorrow I have a delicious strawberry dessert recipe for you guys!
|My surprisingly still-hanging basket.|
They had purple potatoes. Calliegh was so excited. Can't wait to make those for her!
|Top of the fridge.|
We get sooo many bananas at a time. I like to wait until they're nice and spotted. Then I peel, break in half, and freeze for smoothies, etc...
They also had these dark chocolate bars bogo. How could I pass that up? Adam and I split them to try out the two different flavors. Well "split"... I haven't seen my other half yet...
|Dinner: Jerk Pork Burger + Island-Style Coleslaw, with sweet potato chips.|
Dinner was the bomb. After all, I had to build up my culinary confidence again after the morning's breakfast fiasco...
What's your most surprising cooking disaster? What did you learn from it?
