Looks Like a FAIL, Tastes Like a WIN

A couple of months back, Charlie suggested we buy some package mixes for times we need to fix something quick. We chose a wide selection, and most of them have been disappointing.

I didn’t expect much from this, but it did have actual real rice in it. But the rice kind of stuck, and got kind of gummy, and the sauce didn’t thicken much, so it looked kind of like soup.

I put it over shredded lettuce. The yellow blob is called “topping.”

hhfailwinBut you know what? It was really flavorful and spicy! The lettuce was so fresh and crunchy and juicy and it set off the spiciness a treat.

So … yeah.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: A character expects something to be crap and is pleasantly surprised.

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

      Fresh-cooked is always best, Joey, especially Mom-cooked. Unless it’s my mom. Then, not so much. She always claimed I taught myself to cook at age 13 out of self-defense. ANYWAY, HH is full of all kinds of chemicals and stuff. I threw the box away, or I’d check it out. How do you deal with MSG? Some people get sick from it. No telling. Yeah, stick with your mother’s goulash. And send some over here, will ya? πŸ˜‰

  1. I don’t know that I’ve ever had noticeable trouble with MSG, but I know I have issues with certain processed foods. I’m delicate. I don’t want to be delicate, but I also don’t want to spend my time chewing Tums, rehydrating, and well, you know. πŸ™‚
    My mother’s goulash is delightful comfort food, although I admit, I eat less of the hamburger than the rest of my family. Cause you know, delicate. πŸ™
