Last week, we had my sister-in-law and her husband visiting from San Diego. The visit was lovely. The food was not.
It was one of those bad cooking weeks. You know those weeks, where no matter how hard you try, something is just not quite right with every dish?
It started with their anniversary dinner where I over cooked the halibut (easy enough to do), sure, but then it was Friday night, and the tagine was missing something. No matter how I played with the balance of sweet and salty, sour and spicy, I just could not seem to make it sing.
The quick bread I made for a grab and go snack or breakfast was lovely, but no one ate it until it was 3 days old and starting to dry out. But what can you do? Some weeks are just like that.
