I am not much of a cook. You all know this. But that doesn’t stop me from trying! There’s just something about all the dicing and stirring and seasoning that I find therapeutic. The end results are dicey though. My husband, married to me for better or worse for nine years now, doesn’t even blink anymore when I place something that looks like a compost pile topped with an R.O.U.S. He just eats it. Man is the least picky eater alive, thank heavens. My children, sadly, are not so generous.
Take my food experiment of the day: Chocolate Zucchini Cookies. Awesome, right? Well…
So what does one do with a fabulously failed food experiment? Share it! I texted TJ, my little bro., who happens to be awesome chef:
Me: So, I just made choco zucchini cookies. I used a cheese grater. They look funny.
TJ: Send pic
TJ: hahahaha! You made a turd.
Me: Yeah. You want some. Admit it.
TJ: More than air.
I ate one anyhow. Despite their fecal appearance, they tasted decent. Which marks my second time ever intentionally eating something that looks like poo. See, back in college, my brother and I used to play a game called Pumpernickel Poopies. Poor students + friend that works at a bagel store and can get free pumpernickel bagel dough = some of the best times of my life. We’d leave the “poopy” somewhere public, in a nice steaming pile, and then sit back and watch people’s horrified reactions. And then, if we got really bored, one of us would run up and take a bite. Priceless.
What are you guys doing this weekend? Got no plans? Well you do now! Just remember to send me the pics…
PS> I will be camping this weekend and therefore will not be around to witness your horrified exclamations. (Or answer e-mails or comment, etc. etc. etc.) Happy funning!
