My cooking tragedies
When I was about 10 I asked my mom if I could cook dinner and she agreed... surprisingly. I was to make sweedish meatballs. I had all the ingredients laid out and was ready to begin. Everything went according to the recipe... with one exception. Instead of using 1 Teaspoon of SALT I used 1 CUP!! It was horrible. I felt aweful that I had ruined everyones dinner. My family was so nice that they actually tried to eat it, until I told them they were off the hook. I'm sure they had never tasted anything so... SALTY in their whole lives. But they did everything they could to keep me from being discouraged and trying again. I did try again and it was a success. They are the best!
