My cooking tragedies
I was making my wonderful mashed potatoes and had run out of milk. I didn't want to use buttermilk so I decided to use plain soy milk. No harm right...well it helps not to cook when you are tired and to always double check the ingredients you are using. We put the food on the table and begin to eat. My son put a big spoonful of potatoes in his mouth, then, this look came over his face. He asked, "Mom what kind of potatoes are these?" I was offended since this was my 100th time making the potatoes. I told him stop being smart and eat. Well I put a fork full of potatoes in my mouth and the same look came over my face. I immediately started laughing and apologize to my son for snapping at him. Turns out, I used vanilla soy milk instead of plain. So we were eating baked chicken, string beans and moms famous vanilla mashed potatoes. YUCK!
