My cooking tragedies
My very first tragedy was when I was about 8 years old. I had made my own recipe of oat meal. When my family sat down to eat they all turned nose up to it. I put the bowl on the floor for my faithful dog "Puff", and he broke my heart. He went to the door garbed a throw rug in his teeth & covered the bowl. :-)). then went to lay down and went to sleep.
