Try as I might to get into interesting little food adventures on a daily basis, I often strike out. I mess up the food, mess up the photography, or am too uninspired by what I’m eating to make a blog post that will stand on its own. However, this is about as close to a diary or reality show as I’ll ever get, so I have to share the failures right?
Failure to flip
I tried three times (three delicious times) to get this caramelised onion, chorizo, feta, spinach, coriander, chilli and sumac omelette to flip nicely. No dice, but I had a lot of breakfast that day. As many times as I get an omelette right, I still get it so wrong on occasion.
Failure to finesse
Next time you have a meatloaf, or as I did in this case, a meat slice, try it with 1kg of your preferred mince meat (mix a couple up if you prefer) two diced onions, four tablespoons of wholegrain mustard, two heaped teaspoons of garam masala, plenty of pepper, a can of baked beans, 50g of bread crumbs, topped with a can of chopped tomatoes, and wrapped in bacon. The photos won’t be anything to write home about but the meatloaf will be delicious. (Thanks to Peter Gordon again for the flavours to savour in the failures).
Failure to flatter
It’s Lavosh. Garlic and linseed lavosh. Um, it tastes slightly garlicky, and a little bit linseedy? Other than recounting the general qualities of lavosh, I couldn’t come up with anything remarkable to say about these, other than I didn’t find them remarkable.
So there we go, a little selection of blogging lowlights, but at least here failure still tastes good.
