Yesterday I wore my Steelers jersey to Costco. I felt like a moving target.
Even worse than a playoff loss, is a playoff loss when the winning team is your current state's team. It's just...annoying. All the blue and orange makes my eyes hurt.
I made macaroni and cheese last night and it was just not as good as I wanted it to be. Disappointing that even my solace of comfort food was ruined after an even more disappointing Steelers' loss. I found myself wishing I had a box of Annie's. I would prefer a box of Annie's White Cheddar and Shells to the time/effort/taste of what I made last night.
It made me think about food I'm not good at making, so I just don't. Sometimes it's easier to know when to give up.
1. Omelettes. I'm really bad at them. It's not even worth it. I make scrambles instead. Same difference. I order omelettes when I go out for breakfast instead because that's the only way I'll ever get to eat one.
2. Hamburgers. Since I don't eat burgers, I never really learned how to make them. The last time I tried them on the grill (for Scott and a friend), they were raw on the inside. I had no idea.
3. Salads. I usually order salads at restaurants because I rarely make them at home. I do love a good salad, but it takes so much work and effort and grocery shopping to prep salads. Plus, they never taste as good at home.
4. Hard-boiled eggs. Again, I don't eat them, so I don't know how to make them. I've tried all the different methods. Scott's not picky about food at all but even he side-eyes my attempts at hard-boiled eggs.
What foods are you really bad at making? Anything you've given up on?
