My cooking tragedies
When I was 17, I did not know the difference between cooking wine and wine vinegar. I was making a romantic dinner, and my mother had laid out all the ingredients on my kitchen counter for me. For some reason, the wine vinegar was on the counter, and not the wine. I added 1/2 cup of the vinegar to the sauce. I burnt the garlic toast and somehow managed to botch the cesear salad (must have been because I was in total panic mode at that point). I must have done something right though: I ended up living with that guy for 6 years!
