Yes, it is true. We are almost half way through the year and EPC has already crowned this dish the Worst Meal of The Year. I think he is being overly optimistic. Afterall, I do have over 6 months to whip up another culinary disaster to torment our taste buds.
Perhaps it was silly to think that I could make a delicious macaroni and cheese recipe with tofu. Mind you, this recipe still contains cheese and milk, but it didn’t help any. The block of soft tofu and the two teaspoon of prepared mustard brought this dish into the winner’s circle.
It looks delicious doesn’t it.
Well, looks can be deceiving.
I had been looking forward to preparing Saturday’s dinner all week. I even had to make a special trip to the grocery store to pick up some Anaheim chilies. After sauteing the onions and chilies to within an inch of their lives and baking the sought after meal topped with cheese in a casserole dish for 20 minutes, dinner was ready.
Or should I say “oh no.”
EPC and I politely ate what was on our plates, but the leftovers were not saved. The dinner was a disaster. EPC concurred, stating that without a doubt this was the worst meal of the year. As an afterthought he mentioned that the refried beans were OK, but that I had made better.
Things can only go up from here.
