My cooking triumphs
Doing all the cooking for our own parties of from 50-85 people (Buffet style) and having everyone love it. Was I tickled. An Indian meal w/ Chicken Korma, my own Rice Pilaf, 3 kinds of homemade chutni, chapati, raita, green salad w/ oranges & walnuts, and Saffron pudding for dessert.
My cooking tragedies
A wonderful chilled blueberry soup: can you believe, I forgot to put the top on the blender. The miracle was that we got the mess out of the nearby light blue carpet.
